Walk thru the fields to see the ranunculus up close or view them from the adjacent street or as you drive by on the highway. The fields are sometimes in the form of a US flag. Buy strawberries in season.

Beuatiful color, be sure to check the website for the dates the fields open and close for the year. 90% of the fields are ranuculus flowers

Loved seeing the fields for the first time. This was April 20 and not sure the vibrant colors maintained lay the end of the week. Did not take the tractor and enjoyed the walk around just as much.

Returned to this lovely destination only to discover to my horror that my camera's battery died within 10 minutes of my arrival. Fortunately the kind gate attendant stamped my hand so that I would be able to leave the premises, recharge the battery, and return before closing [6:00 p.m.]. This is my second [but not last] visit to the Flower... More

We added this to our destinations while traveling - - it was great to see, and wander about for a nice breather from the car.

Flowers in every color beautifully cultivated, fields over looking pacific ocean. Have cash, comfortable shoes on, take water bottles and wear hats since open fields can get warm. Be prepared to walk and have your shoes get little muddy. Beautiful place if you want to take your engagement pictures. You get a little bit discount on tickets if you have... More

Just the sheer size of these Flower Fields is most impressive. Since we are staying at the Legoland Hotel, we keep passing them, as they are very close by. We admired them from Armada Drive (incredible view from above), and did drive into their parking lot. The entrance fee is $11 for seniors, and we only had an hour, so... More

We popped in here after shopping at the outlet mall. I love flowers, and we could see some from afar so we decided to have a look. We got there at 5:45, and they close at 6:00. When we were deciding whether to pay the $36 for the three of us for such a short time, the lady selling us... More
