A couple of weeks ago, I went to LEGOLAND and SeaWorld without my kids. It was part of the Travel Media Showcase fall conference for family travel writers in Carlsbad, California. Friends and family have been interested in the details of the trip, so I'm sharing the experience here. About 40 writers - nearly all bloggers - were selected to attend the TMS Family Travel Conference from around the United States, as well as a number of peer presenters. Attendees applied for invitations months in advance. Sponsors, including Visit Carlsbad and Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, covered the cost of the conference.

Omni La Costa Resort and Spa is a luxury resort in sunny Carlsbad, California. It is one of the best-rated family resorts in the U.S. and is a top golf and spa destination as well. Carlsbad makes a great base for a Southern California family vacation. This year-round beach town is the home of LEGOLAND California and near the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It's a short drive from all of the family activities in San Diego and a reasonable distance from Disneyland as well.
