Have you ever discovered something on the day it closes and spent an entire year wishing you had discovered it just a day sooner? That is exactly what happened with me and my friend Kelsey when we discovered this fantastic little place called the Carlsbad Flower Fields.
Last year we saw a bunch of beautiful pictures popping up all over social media of friends frolicking in flowers. We decided we had to go! Only to realize that day was the last day they were open for the season 🙁 Talk about CRUSHED. So this little day trip has literally been on our calendars (in permanent marker) for a year! And I am SO glad we went. Y’all this place is a dream and the Ranunculus are redonkulous. Unfortunately, because it is a functioning farm you can’t just waltz through the fields like Instagram would lead you to believe… But we found ourselves plenty of happy places (and photo-ops) anyway! If you are ever in So-Cal during the spring, the Carlsbad Flower Fields are a definite must see!
