This place is only open for a few months of the year, closing on Mother's Day as the blossoms die off. The rows of color are astounding. One section I really enjoyed was created by the Master Gardeners of San Diego. Various plants are grouped together such as to attract butterflies, or that grow in the north or south. We... More

Seeing the flower fields in full bloom is awesome! I've gone with my sister, mom, and friends, and always love it.

The flower fields were beautiful. They had an America flag built with flowers. They also have hay rides being pulled tractors which is fun for the kids. It is a great place to take pictures.

Such a beautiful place to visit if you love flowers. The fields are planted in different stages so you have blooming flower fields for a few months. You should spend the $5 for the wagon ride around the property so you can see it all from a slight elevation. The wagon drops you off and you can walk around and... More

We arrived early so there was plenty of parking but when we left the parking lot was full! We got $1 off our tickets with our AAA card. We decided to pay extra $5 a person for the tractor ride because it would have taken us forever to trek up and back with a 3 year old. There was only... More

This place is pricey compared to what the have to offer. Don't get me wrong, the Flower fields are simply breathtaking and great for pictures. But we thought it was quite pricey. Beautiful colors of flowers.

We have passes to Legoland and drive by the Flower Fields a lot, however we have never stopped. This year for our anniversary my husband and I went. It was a little early in the season, so not tons of flowers, but still a great place to visit and experience. You can walk the fields or take the tractor ride... More
