When it comes to spring break you don’t necessarily need to hop on the next flight out of town. That’s especially true when you live in a place where many other people flock to for vacation!

Located in Carlsbad, the Park Hyatt Resort Aviara is known for luxury to the max. Situated atop a high ridge on the shore of the Batiquitos Lagoon, the views will make you want to stay forever. While you’re there play a few holes at the Park Hyatt Avaria Golf Club. Did you know that’s where the LPGA Kia Classic is held?
After golfing, relax at the Avaria Spa with one of several treatments. If you’re looking for something else fun to do during your stay, drive about three miles to LEGOLAND. Full of rides and other attractions, this is a good choice for the kids.
Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel
Here’s another top-notch choice when it comes to staycations in North County. Spring break never looked so good from the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel in Carlsbad. The resort not only boasts exquisite views of the Pacific, but also a children’s interactive water park. The Grand Pacific also has an adults-only swimming pool, not something you find at all resorts. This resort is also nearby LEGOLAND as well as a short drive away from the San Diego Zoo. Both are great choices when you want a daily excursion.
Beach Terrace Inn

Relaxation is the name of the game here. A variety of spa services are available after you spend some fun in the sun.
While you’re enjoying your staycation take some time to visit the nearby Carlsbad Village. Here you can visit a variety of shops, restaurants, even live theater and art galleries. Then when you’re all done you can go back to the Beach Terrace Inn for relaxing time at the pool.
