For nearly two months, the City of Carlsbad has been celebrating its one-of-a-kind floral surroundings with a new visitor program called “Pedal 2 Petal" by Visit Carlsbad. The 8-week celebration of all things floral that started on March 1 and ends soon on May 8, includes floral-inspired events and specials at venues across the city. The good news is that there is still some time left to play!
The all-new program invites visitors to bike through the city during the famous Flower Field bloom, stopping along the mapped route to enjoy an array of unique floral experiences. Three Carlsbad Village businesses are part of this innovative, flower-inspired program. Pedego Electric Bikes, Beach Vibe Rentals, and The Goods Bakehouse are involved and looking forward to being on the route!
Through this program visitors and locals can experience the floral magic of Carlsbad at The Flower Fields and beyond. Local shops and attractions, culinary and wellness experiences, chefs and mixologists, hotel partners and more have all teamed up to create a variety of floral imbued products, activities, bites and cocktails. Guests are invited to bike (pedal) around the great outdoor resort destination and experience different stops where they can enjoy flower-inspired offerings. By “pedaling to the petals,” visitors have the opportunity to celebrate all the wonderful ways the city celebrates spring.
“Carlsbad's flower fields are such a beautiful and unique destination," says Kim Sidoriak, President & CEO of Visit Carlsbad, "But there are so many wonderful experiences throughout Carlsbad, from the boutiques and shops to the fantastic restaurants, and we want visitors to get a taste of them all!”
To further enhance the program, visitors to the destination can “check-in" at participating experiences on the Pedal2Petal web app (available for download through the site). Those who check-in at a minimum of three experiences are entered into a grand prize drawing for a vacation experience in Carlsbad, including 3-nights' accommodation, a $250 Food & Beverage credit, and a Beach Genie coastal concierge set-up, amongst other perks.
