There are so many fun things to do while in Carlsbad, one of them is taking our 2 children to Legoland, located at One LEGOLAND Drive Carlsbad, CA 92008. A ten minute drive from our hotel at the Tamarack Beach Resort by the Sea, we make it a point to spend one day there every time we visit. Legoland is geared for younger children (under 13), and offers more than 60 rides, shows and attractions.

The Legoland water park is perfect for warmer weather with its many water slides and pools. One of my personal favorite attractions there is Miniland USA which features reproductions of seven different places in the US.  All of the combined reproductions are made up of 20 million LEGO bricks in 1:20 scale, that can be seen from many places in the Park.

Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Francisco, New York, are among them. Children and adults are equally enthralled by the miniature reproductions done in such exquisite detail.

What is so wonderful about Legoland is the interactive fun-filled activities that engage children and take their imaginations to greater heights. Dino Island, for example, offers dinosaur themed rides, a dig pit where young paleontologists can dig for fossils, and some life sized reproductions of dinosaurs done in legos, for children to explore.

There are plenty of restaurants, shopping and clean restrooms located throughout the park, making it easy and practical for families with even the smallest of children. Although we brought our own strollers, strollers are available to rent as well – both single and doubles.
