How do San Diegans know when spring has arrived? When the weather is so beautiful in February and March, it can actually be quite difficult to tell! For many, the opening of the Carlsbad Flower Fields signifies the beginning of spring. Each year in March, the Flower Fields open and thousands of visitors come to enjoy fifty acres of colorful flowers. It is the perfect way to spend a day and a haven for those who love photography!
The Flower Fields have been a tradition in San Diego for over sixty years. The Fields open on March 1 and the flowers (called Rananculus) bloom for six to eight weeks each year.

The Flower Fields are located in Carlsbad, which is a city in Northern San Diego. Carlsbad is accessible by trolley for students who do not have a car.
