Top 5 Labor Day Getaways Within Driving Distance of Carlsbad

We can't believe that Labor Day is almost here. Time is flying by. The team at Carlsbad Auto Service wants you to have a fun and family-friendly holiday this year. We have compiled a list of Labor Day getaways all within driving distance of Carlsbad. In the wake of COVID-19, we would like to remind you that certain destinations may be offering different hours and venue options. We recommend planning your Labor Day getaway ahead of time and checking all possible destinations for their hours and protocols. 

Here are the top 5 Labor Day getaways all within driving distance of Carlsbad: 

La Jolla: For nature lovers, La Jolla is an excellent option. La Jolla is home to many beautiful beaches, including some of the best surfing and diving spots in California as well as the La Jolla Ecological Reserve. For hiking, you can head over to the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. 
Julian: Located an hour east of San Diego in the Cuyamaca Mountains, Julian is a blast from the past, as the historic town dates back to the Gold Rush days in the 1870s. You can hike to your heart's desire in the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park or the Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve. If you are interested in fishing, we recommend Lake Cuyamaca. 
Lake Poway: Lake Poway Recreation Area has a little something for everyone, from families that want to rent a paddleboat and explore the lake to families that can't get enough of hiking California's incredible landscape. Lake Poway has plenty of picnic space and grassy areas if you need a break from all your outdoor activities. 
San Juan Capistrano: In the historic town of San Juan Capistrano, you can explore some of California's most magnificent missions. Mission San Juan Capistrano is over two hundred years old and has a rich history. History buffs can also visit the Los Rios District, California's oldest neighborhood. Many of the adobe homes have been preserved. 
Temecula Valley: If you had enough of California's beaches, you could drive a little ways inland to Temecula Valley for some California wines. If you aren't into wine, you can also hike and explore the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve or even bicycle or ride a horse through the vineyards.
