An iconic San Diego landmark, The Flower Fields in Carlsbad are a bucket-list activity to revel in spring cheer. Vibrant stripes of sunset-shaded ranunculus stretch for 50 acres and only bloom for a short time. Peak season is from late March to early May–just in time for spring break! Adult tickets are $23 and children are just $12 for the 2023 season, and while staying at The Cassara, the fields are your backyard! Take a walk along the hotel’s adjacent pathways for sweeping views of the fields.

At The Cassara, there is plenty of space for kids to act like kids without looks from other guests. Head to the family pool where kids can splash to their heart’s content and play all afternoon at the splash pad (look out for the spray cannons)! Over at the main pool, find vacation bliss with stunning coastal views, poolside beverage service and shady cabanas to relax in. There are even lap lanes to fit in a vacay workout! Lounge the day away, then cozy up by the crackling fire pits at night.


Activity Center for the Kids

Get a mini-parent retreat with the help of The Cassara’s activity center for kids. Open everyday from 8 a.m to 9 p.m., this fun spot will keep your kiddos entertained with activities like basketball scrimmages and arcade competitions. They will even have the opportunity to craft—think painting picture frames and building birdhouses. But the best part (depending on who you ask) is that all activities end with a sweet treat. Hello ice cream sundaes and root beer floats!



Plenty of Places to Wine + Dine

Experience the flavors of Greece without leaving SoCal. The mosaic tiles and Mediterranean menu at the Cassara Kitchen & Bar will take you from San Diego to Santorini. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 3 to 9 p.m., the restaurant delights guests with dishes like roasted garlic hummus and charred octopus! Lamb meatballs with mint yogurt are a chef’s specialty and pairs well with a Tropical Sangria-rita. Karl Strauss Brewing Company is also located on-property for a relaxed bite any time of day.


Proximity to the Beach + LEGOLAND

While staying at The Cassara, you’ll have access to the best of Carlsbad with a parent-of-the-year-worthy itinerary. Stop one, LEGOLAND! Coastal cruises are perfect, while the dragon coaster gives more of a thrill. Be the first in the park and get ahead of the lines as LEGOLAND is just a 3-minute drive from The Cassara. For stop two, pack your beach bags and spend a day on the soft sand at Terramar or Carlsbad State Beach. Parking is free, and both are in proximity to local restaurants and shops.


Fun for the Adults

When we say The Cassara is the perfect place for families, we mean it—parents included. While the kids have a blast at the activity center, rejuvenate your mind and body at the recently renovated Ocean Pearl Spa just one street away. Ocean Pearl Spa is located at The Cassara’s sister property and they offer a complimentary shuttle to take you there. Marine botanicals will give you a revitalizing reset, and after days in the sun, you’ll want to replenish your skin with a signature Sunset Treatment and full-body sugar reef scrub. Carlsbad is also home to some of the largest golf companies and championship golf courses! Tee up at The Crossings at Carlsbad for an 18-hole round amidst Carlsbad’s coastal terrain.
