Lake San Marcos Vacations

A popular destination within the bustling city of San Diego, Lake San Marcos has a lot to offer travellers. The city center of San Diego is just 35 miles (56 kilometers) away and McClellan-Palomar Airport is 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the west of Lake San Marcos.

Lake San Marcos is close to a range of colorful San Diego’s well-known sights. Two attractions that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the fabulous Legoland California and the much-loved Sealife Aquarium. Two other recommended attractions within a short distance of Lake San Marcos are the Flower Fields of Carlsbad and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets.

If the weather is good, do what the locals do and make the most of the local natural destinations. Go for a walk in one of the local parks and gardens, which include the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas. Enjoy listening to the birds, throw a ball and enjoy some sunshine at nearby the Moonlight State Beach in Encinitas.

For those travelling without children, discover the many attractions at Ferrara Winery in Escondido.

Finding somewhere comfortable to rest your head around the Lake San Marcos area is a breeze. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks check out the Carlsbad By The Sea Resort, the Hyatt Place San Diego/Vista-Carlsbad, and the popular Ramada Carlsbad.
