This is a feast for the eyes; not to be missed. It's been some time since my family and I toured the flower fields, but I recall being able to walk in certain areas and the fragrance was amazing!

The best flowers fields I have ever seen in my life. The look, the feel is so great. Its such a happy environment out there. Its a great marriage destination too! I visited in April 2014 but don't have that option available so choosing 2015 instead.

50 acres of Ranunculas! Lots of photo opportunities, but, people, please watch where you (and your children) are stepping, so we can all enjoy the beauty. There is an admission charge, and extra cost for the tractor ride, but well worth the visit. Plan to walk a bit, as the fields are on a slight incline. Wear comfortable shoes, it's... More

Even though we didn't get the opportunity to actually tour the flower fields, we were staying in the condos right above the fields so we walked by them every day and they brightened our walk to Legoland!

The flowers are beautiful but other than a short tractor ride to the top of the fields, not much to do except take pictures of flowers. There's a small children's area and an expensive gift shop. The one plus was the fresh strawberry stand; strawberry ice cream, milkshakes, and sundaes! Yum! An enjoyable afternoon, but time could be better spent... More

This is included in our annual tradition to see, best time to come around first week of May, close after Mother's Day! Also discount for AAA member, ride the tractor for the tour, pictures is best in the middle field. Kids always like the maze.

A must-see when in the Carlsbad area; particularly stunning in spring prior to the Mothers Day harvest. Stunning!
