The Flower Fields
For a great photo opportunity, with thousands of poppies in bloom. Ride on the farmers wagon or walk through for a nice few hours, shop at the agriculture barn and go discount shopping at the Carlsbad Shops next door.
World famous flower fields. You can take a walking tour or ride along in a tractor.
The flower fields are a famous Carlsbad delight if you are here in the spring! Explore both free and paid experiences with tons of surrounding local restaurants.
A big tourist attraction during the flower season. Great for kids as there is a little tractor ride and park.
“Walking distance, but also plenty of parking. Many food choices there and across the street.”
“Surfs up... at Carlsbad State Beach! get those toes in the water, sand and sun for some fun in many forms.

“Good food, burgers, sandwiches, salads and entrees with a French flair, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere.”
“Vigilucci's is an upscale Italian restaurant and bar in Carlsbad, literally across the street from the ocean. A bit pricey, but worth the money for great food, a great view of the ocean, and also fun to watch the people walk by around sunset. They offer indoor and outdoor seating, and a full bar.”
