SoCal’s beloved springtime attraction, The Flower Fields, is now OPEN at Carlsbad Ranch®. Macaroni Kid Carlsbad had a special sneak peek at their new attractions! It was awe inspiring and a memorable colorful treat for not only myself but my little guy. He loved the view, tractor ride and the awesome scavenger hunt! Extra bonus if your kiddo completes the scavenger hunt they will get a dollar off the mining booth. 

The coveted tractor ride provides an unbelievable scene. The tractor rides are ran by the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum, riders get to hear the whole history of the flower fields along the way. The rainbow of Tecolote ranunculus grace the 50 acres of rolling hillsides that overlook the Pacific Ocean, making it the ultimate flower paradise. It was a clear day and it was ridiculously ranunculus-ly AMAZING! This was my son's very favorite. 

The Flower Fields has a number of new renovations and must-see additions this season. The new beautiful wedding venue space and fountains is a MUST SEE! Such a gorgeous space for any special occasion. Our family is looking forward to the evenings full of food trucks options on their new patio and picnic area. They also will be offering wine nights. YES, wine and beautiful views! Here are a few more additions: 

  •      Beautiful display gardens developed by the San Diego Master Gardeners 
  •       New pathways at the acclaimed sweet pea maze 
  •       Hands-on workshops featuring art, basket, and gardening 

                 classes in new greenhouses 

  •       Inviting picnic area where visitors can bring their own food 
  •       Breathtaking Mediterranean, Whimsical and Wedding gardens
