It’s officially springtime, and that means the Carlsbad Ranch Flower Fields are in full bloom. A working ranch for more than 60 years, this world-famous attraction on the sunny coast of north San Diego county, is open seven days a week (9am to 6pm).  While you can see the flowers from the freeway, nearby streets, and parking lot, the tour is a must do for anyone who appreciates the beauty of hillside’s bursting with vibrant colors, and especially for budding photographers ($11.00 adult ticket price).

Over 100,000 people arrive each year to explore the 50+ acres and absorb the rainbow rows of splendor, which, like a beautiful butterfly, has a temporarily lifespan – the blooms will last eight to ten weeks. Special events are held in the fields throughout the season including music, arts and crafts, and gardening demonstrations.
