Who doesn't love seeing beautifiul flowers in full bloom?

Chaperoned my granddaughter's class on a field trip to the flower fields. Wonderful seeing the looks on the children's faces while they toured the flower fields.

We visited the flower fields in May this year. Just the two of us empty nesters enjoying our time together . The trip was also educational for us as we learned all about the poinsettia plant varieties and the origin of the Christmas tradition.

The flower fields are spectacular, a great photo opportunity with kids or families. For tourists who want something besides the typical amusement parks and beaches, if the flower fields are open they provide a respite from the crowds and an opportunity to relax and smell the roses.

We went there some years ago. We still remember the beauty. The shop is also fantastic. We got a lot of seeds to plant at home. We loved it. Is worth it.

What a beautiful display of flowers in early spring until about June for which the flower fields are famous and extremely popular for visitors and locals. They have hayrides but can be walked easily for most visitors. Their amazing blooms can be seen from the freeway and other parts of Carlsbad. They even create special and unique flower arrangements for... More

Absolutely beautiful to visit. We have been there in April when everything is in full bloom. Plan to have at least 2 hours to wander and take photos. What a gem - very memorable.
