The flower fields are really neat and I always look forward to them every year, but I've got to say they are just as neat to look at from just driving around town as they are to go visit. You should visit once. It's kind of cool to walk around and take pictures in all the flowers, but there's not... More

Bunch of dirt now, but wait a little longer and it's a wonderful attraction to visit - next to the big outlet mall, you may park in the outlet mall and walk up the small dirt hill for a peak only. (fee for walking inside). Recommended on a sunny day MeuterMedia

The flower fields bloom each year Mid March till mid April. I visited April 3 2015. I did not pay the admission price to go in, instead I rented electric bikes from Pedigo in Carlsbad and rode over to the look out above the flower fields up by GIA institute and took photos. Prices to go in are: $14.00 for... More

This entire area was covered with flower fields in my childhood, admittedly several decades ago. Some fields still remain, so make sure you see them before they turn into shopping malls and subdivisions.

Another low cost site to visit. Magnificent flowers in spring to accompany a trip to LEGOLAND or Carlsbad State Beach or other nearby attractions.

We have an Easter tradition of taking the family to the flower fields. The hills of color are breathtaking and they typically also do a large American flag in blooms. You can either go into the parking lot and spring for a ride through the fields on a tractor or you can admire them from outside the gate. We actually... More

When the flowers are in bloom, it's breathtaking. This is a perfect outing for all ages. I have a grey thumb and kill plants, but this is a must see.
