We recently took a road trip out to Carlsbad, CA (we often travel to CA since both my husband and I have family out there). It’s only a 5 1/2 or so hour drive from Phoenix. Totally worth it to walk on the beach 😉
We all took surf lessons from So Cal Surf Lessons and had the BEST time. Yes, even I surfed and caught quite a few waves! We definitely recommend them if you’re in the area!
We cannot WAIT to do it again. This time we stayed at the Carlsbad Inn. I have a review with more photos AND a 20% discount code through ResorTime on All for the Memories. You’ll definitely want to check it out if you’re planning a vacation.
