The basics

There are few better combinations than high-end fashion and low prices, but that’s exactly what makes Carlsbad Premium Outlets such a draw. Whether you’re after sportswear from brands like Nike and Adidas; want to score bargains at Banana Republic or Lacoste; or prefer to hunt down designer finds from luxury labels like Karl Lagerfeld, Ferragamo, and Marc Jacobs, this one-stop shopping destination has you covered.

An open-air mall with palm-tree-studded walkways—as well as eateries ranging from diners and Mexican grills to Japanese restaurants—Carlsbad Premium Outlets is a popular stop before or after a trip to the nearby LEGOLAND California Resort, while full-day shopping tours of San Diego make visiting even simpler if you don’t have a car while in town.

Things to know before you go

  • Because the walkways between shops are all outdoors and exposed, you may want to bring sun protection and water if visiting on a particularly warm day.

  • Thanks to its street-level walkways, much of the mall is accessible to disabled visitors, and wheelchairs are available to rent for free.

  • A variety of convenient amenities are available on-site, including ATMS, baby-changing stations, restrooms, strollers to rent, and electric vehicle charging areas.
