A Day Outside in San Diego | RTX Traveler Magazine

A Day Outside in San Diego | RTX Traveler Magazine

With your home base in Carlsbad for your southern California vacation, it’s easy to drive north or south along the coast to explore beach towns like Oceanside, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar. The city of San Diego is also a big draw from Carlsbad, at less than 40 miles south. You could easily spend a day trip – or several – exploring all that San Diego has to offer while returning to the quiet beach town of Carlsbad each night.

If you prefer not to drive (you’re on vacation after all!) then the NCTD COASTER Rail is the perfect solution. The COASTER starts in Oceanside and stops in Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Sorrento Valley, Old Town San Diego and finishes its route at the Santa Fe station in San Diego. There are two stations in Carlsbad, one in the heart of the historic village, and one a bit further south.

Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys knew a great deal about living a beach-centric lifestyle, and we are inclined to agree with his sentiment of living blissfully on the beach. We also believe that the beach isn’t just a place to enjoy during the long, lazy days of summer. Each season reveals a different side of beach life, and fall is perhaps one of the best times to enjoy the coast. Crowds are thinner, and the sun is more forgiving. In fact, the weather can be ideal at many beach destinations in the fall.
