Even though there are acres upon acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers, they are very colorful and it's quite a spectacle. It's also very popular, with busloads of people arriving from downtown San Diego and Los Angeles. Good luck finding parking. I parked next to the Museum of Making Music above the fields and walked down from there.

This is something to see when the flowers are in bloom. They do one area that is the American flag. It is just beautiful there. Only bad thing..I bought some flowers and they were dead in a day and a half.

Although there is a limited time of year you can visit the Carlsbad Flower Fields (Spring only), if you are in the area during this time it is well worth the visit. The fields take your breath away. There are acres of rows and rows and rows of extraordinary Ranunculus flowers in different colors -- I couldn't stop taking pictures.... More

If you haven't been here, gotta go! It's beautiful! You don't really have to pay to go in, you can see how beautiful it is from up by the Pacific Palasades hotel. If you haven't been, you must see it!

If your mother is a flower fanatic like mine, then this is the place to go! I knew my mom liked flowers, but never knew she was so knowledgeable about all the different varieties of flowers. The rows of flowers go on and on for 50 acres, and the fragrance of the fields were so sweet! We especially liked the... More

March, and april are THE months when the flower fields are ablaze with color. It is worth a trip to Carlsbad to see the riot of color, and Do Take Your Camera! Afterwards stop by the Outlet center for a little retail therapy or a quick bite to eat. I

We visited the Carlsbad Flower Fields, an out skirt suburb of San Diego CA. It is truly a must see for any vacation. The fields never seem to end of row after row of alternating colors of flowers. Absolutely loved this. This is a family owned business and they have a lot going on educationally for the children, as well.... More

The flowers were in full bloom until right after Mother's Day when they mowed them down. I wish they kept them around a little longer.

What an eye catching experience. The many colored ranunculuses are a wonder to behold. Rows and rows of the many colored flowers. One of my favorite due to the great variety of colors and beauty. You can walk the fields, ride the tram and also walk from the top. The special gardens are also beautifully done. You can buy bulbs... More
