If you are in the Carlsbad area looking for something to do..other than the beach, check out the flower fields in Carlsbad! All the years I have lived in So. Cal and never gone. I had a blast with the family, especially since it was new territory for me even though Carlsbad is my other home. It does cost a little but it was a lot of fun being together. There is a play area for the little ones, a maze, flowers all over, education areas, and more. Yes, take your allergy meds before going lol. We even ran into Santa who is working his spring job! He gave my girls cards because he "caught them being good."
