Well, the reason for our trip and the reason the kids couldn't wait to get to Southern California was LegoLand. My kids love Legos and at this place they were in hog heaven. After my week at the conference in LA enjoying the mild sunny days, this day was overcast and somewhat cool in the 60s (that's a cold April day for us Texans).
My goal …
... with mango salsa (and shared one margarita). Continuing the great drive south with the spectacular ocean views. With the amount of people out doing a variety of physical activity (biking, walking, surfing, etc), we get the impression that the California stereotype of fitness is warranted.
Ronnie salivated as we made a quick stop at the famous Torrey Pines golf course (luckily he has ...
... place to unwind and catch up, however the food was good and lots of beer choices.
After Pizza Port we went to a new bar that was opened and doing beers and cocktails, Bar 21. we enjoyed dessert and the boys enjoyed some craft beers, before heading on a mini pub crawl/tour of the Carlsbad night life! really pleasant and chilled evening. and Carlsbad was totally lush and thanks to Greg and Laura for helping us with this night out! x
... They have two lines, a pizza line and a beer line. It became clear that our only strategy was to split up. I volunteered to handle acquiring beer. I ordered us each a pint of Warm Water Wheat, and asked for a quick taste of the Carlsbad Chronic. Both are made on site. We enjoyed each for what it was, the two wheat beers, and ...
... have liked to hear what the giant outdoor organ sounded like, but the sun was setting and it was getting cold.
For the sunset, we headed to the boardwalk on the San Diego Harbor.

This is an acceptable place to stay for your trip to Carlsbad & Legoland if you have kids. The room has a living room separated from the bedroom by a door allowing you to put the kids on a sofa in the living room and have their own TV while the parents have the privacy of their own bedroom. Much welcomed after a long day in the amusement parks. Refrigerator is a plus as well.
The free breakfast allows you to save money to start your day but had no hot meat items. The self-made waffles were favorite.
Area around hotel was quiet and nice in appearance but no food places were within the immediate area. Something outside where I parked our car created a horrible order (I couldn't guess if it was the nearby trash can or something else).
Hotel was clean but I noticed the floor was not swept one day of our stay. Kids begged to get in the pool but it was too chilly.
All staff I came into contact with were friendly. We use a lot of towels during our hotel stays and the staff never grumbled when we requested them and brought them up quick.
If we return to Legoland we'd stay here again.
