I found the perfect place to visit this spring and since it was the first day of spring on Sunday, it really is perfect! I spent the past week in Carlsbad at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa. And as good as that sounds, I was working tirelessly the whole week. It was exhausting, but that's besides the point. Anyway, just 10 minutes north of the hotel is one of the most beautiful places. The Carlsbad Flower Fields grow all kinds of different flowers and it literally looks like a rainbow of orange, pink, white, yellow, red and purple. There even is a giant American flag made out of flowers. It's pretty impressive. I stopped here last year around the same time and this time around the flowers are even more in bloom. I found walking farther to the left after you enter is best. The flowers on the far left are bigger and the colors are therefore more vibrant. I'm sure they planted those first and then continue to the right.
It’s more so a photo op with a pretty backdrop, but if you go with kids, there is a tractor that you can ride that drives around the property. I’d definitely recommend stopping here if you’re in the San Diego area. For $14 you can get some great photos and leave that much happier because let’s face it flowers just make everything happier. Huge perk, it’s right next door to the Carlsbad outlets. Shopping and flowers, what more could a girl want?
