California Adventure: The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA

With Mother's Day just around the corner, why not do something unexpected and early this year? Usually, people take their moms out to eat and bring her some flowers. But this year, why not bring her to the flowers?
The Flower Fields
Located in Carlsbad, CA, The Flower Fields are 50 acres of blooming colors. My mom learned about the fields on TV and desperately wanted to see them so we stopped by The Flower Fields before our trip to Legoland.

Not only do they have giant fields of ranunculus, but they also have smaller gardens of roses and other flowers and greenhouses with orchids at the base of the fields.

The fields are only open until May 11th so if your mom loves flowers as much as my mom, bring her here to check them out! We paid $12 for adult admission, but there's also a tractor wagon tour ride for $5 per person (but we didn't go on that). Just FYI: you may not want to wear any fancy shoes because the fields can get muddy, but the flowers are beautiful.

As an added bonus, The Flower Fields are right next to the Carlsbad Premium Outlets (in case you wanted to take Mom shopping) and Legoland California (in case you wanted to check out The Lego Movie Experience). 
View from the Top Ridge
But in the case where you'd rather not pay admission and just want to see the fields from afar, there's actually a ridge above the fields on the street to Legoland. If you pull over (and there's plenty of parking), you can look over the ridge and see the fields from above.

If you'd like directions or more information, check out The Flower Fields' website at www.theflowerfields.com.
