The Flower Fields of Carlsbad are 50 acres of blooming beauty on a hillside overlooking the sea.  Located at 5704 Paseo Del Norte, Carlsbad, CA 92008, they are a short 10 minute drive from the Tamarack Beach Resort by the Sea where we stayed with our family.

Walking through these fields is an absolute delight.  We spent a couple hours there taking photographs and roaming about while our children ran up and down the paths in excitement. The vivid colors are quite stunning, and make for a lovely family outing.

The Sweet Pea Maze enthralled the children as they followed the fragrant twists and turns. I opted to watch from just outside the maze in case they lost their way and needed assistance, which they did not.

Part of the Flower Fields is a historic poinsettia display where one can stroll through a 1,500 square foot greenhouse filled with hundreds of poinsettias in over twenty and rare varieties.

There is also an American flag of flowers where well-placed red, white and blue anemone flowers wave in the breeze, honoring the United States. Throughout the year The Flower Fields of Carlsbad offer fun-filled special events and activities. This place was definitely worth visiting during our stay.
