“Beautiful in Season”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a beautiful array of color and is visible from the freeway. It used to be free, but now they charge for entry, have fences so you can't see it unless you pay, and have added merchandise. It has become too commercial for me. Good if you haven't seen it before.

“Flower Fields”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

January is not a good time to visit the Flower Fields. The fields were bare of flowers, and would be nice to see in the Spring. We would like to return in April or May to see the beautiful blooms.

“Photographer's delight”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is a great place to visit for a short stop in the spring. My kids (7-12) enjoyed the "scavenger hunt" through the gardens and panning for gems (couple of dollars extra). I enjoyed photographing all of the flowers in the fields and the various gardens. We walked around for a couple of hours before jumping in the car for the long drive home. It's a great thing to do on your last day in Carlsbad. Don't miss the orchids in the greenhouse.

“Gorgeous but too pricey”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Positively breath-taking in April every year. BUT the price is totally unacceptable. If you want to just stroll through the gorgeous flowers - over $12 each.
