One of my favorite road trips is going to Napa Valley. When I go there I am usually spending a lot of time driving from winery to winery.

I recently went and stayed at The Cassara Hotel Carlsbad, which is a great hotel that is centrally located to many things in Carlsbad. The Cassara Hotel, is located right above the Flower Fields in Carlsbad. They have rooms that over look it, it’s really a great way to wake up to see how pretty the flowers are.
