Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Get out of town with these interesting Karbala side-trips: Kufa (Al Sahlah Great Mosque, Great Mosque of Kufa, & more), Babylon (in Al Hillah) and Najaf (Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery & Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Imam Hussain's Shrine, steep yourself in history at Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel, admire the masterpieces at Memory Islam Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Tal Al Zainabeiah site.
