San Diego welcomes new wellness experiences and retail concepts, plus the return of the beloved Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch.
Visit The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch to enjoy thousands of vibrant Tecolote ranunculus, tractor wagon rides, art displays and more.
The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are in full bloom through May 14, offering a feast for the senses with nearly 50 acres of colorful Tecolote ranunculus. New this year is an exclusive partnership with Pop Up Picnic Co., which allows visitors to enjoy a 90-minute, prix fixe meal on Saturdays and Sundays, with two seatings per day (11:30AM and 2PM). Farm-to-table sandwiches, salads, fruit and beverages will be served against the backdrop of the vibrant flower fields at a photoworthy table display, complete with curated place settings. The nearby Cassara Carlsbad also offers visitors the chance to extend their experience with its Stay & See package, which includes an overnight stay in a luxury guest room, two tickets to The Flower Fields, plus free transportation to and from the site.
