The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are in Full Bloom

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch

Beautiful Fields on a Gorgeous Spring Day

 

It was time for a much needed break, and some outdoor time, yesterday afternoon, so my wife and I took off to check out the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch.

 

Carlsbad Flower Fields Spring 2018I’m not sure if they were at their peak yesterday…on a gorgeous sunny day…but the 50 acres of brightly colored Ranunculas were spectacular, and the crowds were out, too.

 

While walking through the fields or taking a tractor ride gets you close to this floral beauty, my favorite vantage point is along Armada Drive, at the top of the hill looking down on the fields, and the ocean beyond. And it’s free. Yesterday the parking spaces along the road were all taken with others taking in the beautiful views.

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch have been a popular tourist attraction for more than 6 decades, and offer a wide range of events during the week and on weekends.

 

The Carlsbad Flower Fields are open until Mother’s Day May 13th. If you are in the area, they are worth checking out, up close in person or up on the hill!

 

You can purchase tickets on the Flower Fields website.

So, so beautiful, Jeff. Reminds me of the tulip fields in Holland when they are in full bloom.

Hi Nina Hollander 

I've seen photos of the tulips fields but never got to see them when we were in Amsterdam. Some day perhaps.

They are pretty impressive, especially when at their peak. I was amazed the first time I saw them when we moved here.
