Best Time to Visit the Carlsbad Flower Fields


Tecolote Ranunculus Flower

“Visiting The Carlsbad Flower Fields early in the bloom season instead of at ‘peak bloom’ made for a far more memorable experience.”

Each year in Southern California I look forward to the fifty acres of ranunculus flowers reminiscent of the Land of Oz. In fact, the Carlsbad Flower Fields is home to one of the largest flower displays in the world drawing more than 160,000 visitors in their eight-week bloom season.

Like many other people, I visit when most of their flower fields are in full bloom. Last year however, I went early in the season and the timing was a great choice. It was only March 17th and not officially spring yet when the Flower Fields website said the first of their fields had reached full bloom. It meant that I was not only able to enjoy two fields in full bloom, but I had so much fun photographing fields of young, budding flowers with hints of colorful petals beginning to emerge. Further, it came with the extra perk of having the flowers nearly all to myself. I hope you can make time for a visit to the Carlsbad Flower Fields this year. It’s always worth it.
