August 1, 2016, San Diego Sights and Bites – Notorious Burgers
I’ll admit that I don’t venture up north to Carlsbad very often. I tend to stay in my central San Diego bubble until I hear about something that’s worth sitting in San Diego County Fair & Del Mar Racetrack traffic to visit. But I recently made the trip up to “The Village by the Sea” to have a pool day at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, and boy was it worth the 30-mile drive. The expansive property includes 600 rooms (including suites and villas), eight swimming pools, two golf courses, 17 tennis courts, 100,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor event space, a luxury spa, and the world headquarters of The Chopra Center (yes, Deepak Chopra’s sanctuary – it’s on my bucketlist). Since “adults-only” always sounds appealing to a single like me, I dropped my towel at the Edge pool that has an up-close view of the golf courses. The pool and infinity jacuzzis are the epitome of vacation mode and relaxation, while the music keeps you bobbing in your lounger.
