When the flower fields are in bloom it is is the most spectacular sight. Color everywhere. Great escape from the city.

I took my daughter to see this Flower Fields on April 18th 2014 since we had passed so many times during our stay at Carlsdbad Seapoint Resort. We had walked around to all corners of this Flower Fields. It is such a beautiful picture. Thanks to all of hard works of everyone working there and whoever has such of an... More

Wonderfully maintained garden with verities of flowers. Entry fee is small and one can spend a couple of hours in this garden. Nothing much in this place.

We have been going to the FLOWER FIELDS every year for the last 25 years and it just never disappoints. It's heaven for flower lovers and gardeners. Who wouldn't love this abundance and beauty. A must see from March to Mother's Day. Easter services. Champion rose Garden with varieties from around the world. Special themed gardens. Santa's village from Big... More

The best place to see the flower fields is from the road that runs past the top of the fields. You get a great view and you can park there and see them FREE instead of paying to go in.

There is something about this huge expanse of ranunculus blooming in all shades as well as in discrete color bands that rivals the show the Dutch put on with the tulips in springtime. Because of the magnitude of the area (over 40 acres) and the ability to view it up close this is a wonderful venue for all ages. Living... More

This is a one of a kind attraction in SoCal, as you won't find too many flower fields in the area. A great place to spend the day.

Some say THERE IS NOT GOD, well they have not been to see the Flower Fields in Carlsbad. The city of Carlsbad has saved the land they are on. They are truly a sight to see. So many colors, so many volunteers help make them so special. When visiting Carlsbad, CA (not NM) do stop by. Plus there is an... More

We went to see the flower fields and they were a sight to see. At the top of hill you could look out to pacific ocean. We took a wagon tour around the fields and learned the history. The fee to get in was kinda pricey we thought $12 and $5 for wagon ride.

You can see the flowers from the street when they are in full bloom, but everyone needs to bite the bullet and pay the price to go behind the fence and visit the flower fields. You have to buy a ticket and they aren't cheap (around $10) but it's worth it to walk among the acres of colorful (and odorless)ranunculus... More
