There is a truly magical, all-natural location in Carlsbad, California, and if you’ve never been, then you really must get in the car and immediately head over there. The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are a sight to see, in bloom for only six to eight weeks a year, and they are a stunning display of the natural beauty of San Diego County.
The Flower Fields are approximately 50 acres of Tecolote Ranuculus flowers that burst into color at the same time every year. It is like nature’s way of saying that spring has arrived, so you’ll want to plan your visit between March and May. The flowers that bloom are also known as a Persian Buttercup, though there are also another five acres of other specialty flowers to see.
You can wander the Flower Fields on your own, or you can join a guided tour, for a 30 – 45 minute walking or wagon tour. You’ll be able to take plenty of pictures of the amazing flowers, so be sure to bring your camera to show off your own photography skills and capture the splendid colors and beauty that surrounds you. The tours include a historical look at the Fields, a discussion on planting processes, a description of the flowers, and a browse through the gift shop. When you visit, you will be able to purchase fresh cut flowers from the gift shop and you can enjoy some snacks at the various food vendors that are usually available on the weekends.
For a fun trip like this to the Flower Fields, make sure to drive there in the CLS63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You can drive in total luxury and relax on your trip to one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The Flower Fields is definitely worth a visit, just be sure to plan it at just the right time so you can see all the colors in bloom.
