What a nice place to spend a morning, strolling through the gardens and enjoying the sights. Take a friend and walk the fields. Just a beautiful place.

Stopped by the flower fields to see the massive fields of ranunculus and enjoy the day. We didn't take the tractor tour because we like to walk. It is a very nice area for a leisure stroll but don't miss the extra green houses. They have orchids, poinsettias, roses and geraniums growing under care and in the refreshment areas. There... More

Since few of us live on farms these days, I'm sure we don't often see how things are grown for market nor do we see things as visually stunning as the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Appreciation for the transient nature of living things combined with the breathtaking scenery are all the motivation one needs to see this attraction year after year.... More

It is not worth for $12. If this is the first time, it is fine. We come here for serval times. So it is ok just stay outside and take a picture.

We live in Washington state and have an annual Tulip Festival in Arlington (north of Seattle) which has acres and acres of tulips in full bloom every spring with lots of events and hoopla included. We thought this would be "underwhelming" but were pleasantly surprised. I should qualify that this was included in a group event, so we did not... More

Take your camera. If you enjoy flowers, this is the place for you. Be warned, this is a popular attraction. The place fills up fast. Yes there is a lot of open space in the fields. The areas that have displays, and concessions gets crowded. If you ever find yourself in Carlsbad in the Spring, it is well worth the... More

Was recommended by friends to see the Flower Fields, didn't know what to expect. Drove up to a sea of flowers on a very large hillside. I am told this is only open from March-May. Parking can be a bit challenging especially on weekends. The line to get in was very long to get in (about 30-35 min wait). Check... More

This location has a fantastic display of fresh growing flowers. It only costs $12.00 to gain admission to the fields. It costs an extra $5.00 to take the tractor/trailer ride around the field, but the cost is well worth it. I spent over three hours looking at and photographing flowers and fields of flowers.
