Beautiful to visit when all is in bloom. The hillside American flag is stunning. Lots of activities for the kids such as panning for gold and a scavenger hunt. One can easily get lost in the maze. The wagon ride is fun for the little ones.

I used to live in San Diego and always enjoyed driving up Palomar Airport Road and seeing the Flower Fields in season.

The Flower Fields are in full bloom in March and April and is absolutely beautiful! You can walk through the fields and see it at different angles. I live in Texas and try to go visit every year. A must see.

The followers were beautiful but it is not big as you think. The ticket price is on the high end. I don't think it is worthy the money.

So, maybe its common knowledge, but there are no flowers in October. The entire field was covered in plastic...
