Carlsbad is fast becoming a destination for local tourism and visitors from far away alike. The city's beachfront locale boasts more than seven miles of beautiful clean beaches, over 150 acres of parks, summer Jazz in the Park concerts, picnic facilities and play areas, three community centers and three championship golf courses. Additionally, the Carlsbad Village Faire, featuring almost 1000 exhibitors (held on the first Sunday of May and November), is the largest one-day street fair in San Diego County, and draws visitors from near and far.

Known as "The Village by the Sea," Carlsbad has the charm of a European village and much of the architecture reflects this old-world theme. The Village's unique sidewalk shops and superb restaurants are just a short walk from the beach. The city’s famed Flower Fields, which are less than a mile from Ramada Carlsbad, draw thousands of visitors from Southern California and beyond each spring, when more than 50 acres of brightly colored ranunculus light up the landscape with thousands of blooms.

For a weekend family outing, be sure to visit Legoland's 128-acre family theme park - dedicated to families with children between the ages of 2 and 12. Just like with Lego toys, kids make things happen at the Park. They can drive, pedal, squirt, climb, jump, stomp, slide, steer, pull, click, push, gallop, laugh, build and program their way through more than 50 rides and attractions.

For the nature enthusiast, San Diego Animal Park is a 15 minute drive inland from Carlsbad. From the Ramada Carlsbad it is less than 2 miles to the GIA (Gemological Institute of America), the world's largest institute of gemological research and education.
