Carlsbad in California, with its numerous Carlsbad oceanfront hotels, is often referred to as the Village by the Sea. And rightly so.
It combines a quaint European charm with a typical southern Californian coastal resort community feeling. Its sprawling white sand beaches, perfect climate, and great restaurants make it an extremely popular vacation destination.
A majority of the Carlsbad oceanfront hotels including the Ocean Palms Beach Resort are also close to three of its greatest tourist attractions which are as follows:

The children will simply marvel at its Lion Temple Wave Pool, crocodile swamp, the interactive Build-a-Boat and Build-A-Raft River sections and its 2 sandy beaches.
