We stayed at the Grand Pacific Palisades Hotel, and the flower fields were directly below our room. It was beautiful to look out to see them in full bloom with the ocean below. There is nothing quite like them, except perhaps in the Skagit Valley...More

First time visiting the Flower Fields and was awed by the beauty. I will be visiting again next year but soon after they have fully bloomed.

Nice view of the flower fields from the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort. Seems to be popular as the farm was well-visited despite a rainy day.

I think San Diego Botanical Gardens, 4 freeway exits to the south from the Flower Fields, is a much more rewarding experience at the same admission price. However, it's possible Groupon has an offer for the Flower Fields... More

They offer a senior discount.
Do you have to buy tickets in advance online? Or is it possible to buy them when you get there?

Either. The difference is if you buy them in advance you do not have to wait in line to buy tickets when you get there. At this time, when the flower fields just opened, the lines to buy tickets can be long, while with the... More
