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

A very beautiful array of colors but the area just gets too congested. You have the outlet mall that is crawling with tourist and then the parking lot for the fields...which is usually packed. Do a drive by, stop at BJs for a cold one, and hit the beach!

There is no need to pay to see the fields unless you wish to be up close and personal with the flowers. This is a site to see if you are in or traveling through the area, I dont know if I would make a special trip to see this, but it is worth seeing at least once in your... More

This was the most ideal place to take family friends with children during spring time when the flowers bloom.

The Cymbidium orchids were in bloom in the greenhouses when we visited. What a special treat. Stroll the flower fields with your camera in hand. What a sight to behold!

I lived right across the street from the Flowered Fields in '91-'93. They were beautiful and went on as far as the eye could see, without any construction nearby, save Pea Soup Anderson's. Went back and was horrified to see that only a tiny portion of them remain. Heartbreaking.
