How to Celebrate Love this Month in Carlsbad
February is all about finding connection, relaxation, and love. What better place to do this than in one of California’s most beautiful beach towns? While we consider our hotel to be a love letter from our hometown to our guests, this month we want to share a deeper dive into what makes Carlsbad so special. Here are a few of our favorite ways to celebrate the month of love, the way that locals do.
Kickstart the Valentine’s Day excitement by participating in the Hearts of Carlsbad Village scavenger hunt taking place on Saturday February 10th and Sunday February 11th. Locals and visitors alike will gather to explore our bustling village to search for 400 beautiful, unique, and colorful glass hearts handmade by Barrio Glassworks – once you find a heart, the hunt is over and it’s yours to keep! For those who prefer to enjoy the beauty of this festive weekend event without the thrill of the hunt, you may choose to stay beachside and book our Hearts of Carlsbad Village Hotel Package. Each guest who books this package will receive a locally curated gift basket amenity, which includes a glass-blown heart, a custom Carlsbad-scented candle, a few tasty treats from our favorite local shops, and more. Consider it the best of both worlds – kick back and relax with your sweetheart on our private beach, while we bring the very Best of Carlsbad’s festive weekend straight to your room.
Carlsbad Village is located just a quick stroll away from our little spot on the sand, and is filled with some of North County San Diego’s best eateries and shopping. If you’re looking for a unique day-date, we recommend visiting the Candle Bar to create a keepsake that is sure to delight the senses. Pick out a candle vessel that matches your sweetheart’s style and create your own fragrance blend to mix into the melted wax. Once your candle cools you can decorate with special embellishments such as crystals, dried botanicals, and more!
After exploring the Village and working up an appetite, you’ll have no shortage of delicious local eateries to choose from. If you’re craving a cozy dining experience with an ever-changing menu catered to the seasons, we recommend booking a reservation at Campfire. Their seasonal menu reflects inspiration from California’s unique landscape from desert to sea and is sure to be a meal you’ll savor with your S.O. If you’re looking to embrace all of the romance of the season, a French inspired dish with a Southern California twist from Jeune et Jolie may be just what you need to set the mood. On your way back to Beach Terrace, be sure to grab a cup of locally made Italian gelato from Gelato Love, and we recommend savoring it around one of our poolside firepits where you can soak up the ocean views and rejoice in the chorus of crashing waves.
For couples who are looking to make the most of their romantic retreat with us, we have an exclusive ‘Celebrate Us’ package which includes everything you need to relax and reconnect with your special someone. For a truly swoon-worthy retreat, guests who book this package will enjoy accommodations at our romantic hotel, breakfast in bed for two on the morning of their choosing, a playful welcome beverage, and a specially curated welcome amenity that can be used as a date-night-in-a-box for a truly unforgettable stay.
No matter how you wish to celebrate love this month, Carlsbad is sure to offer a little something for everyone.
