Carlsbad, California

Convenient to both San Diego International Airport and John Wayne Orange County Airport, Carlsbad is a picturesque beach town, with mild weather in May and lots to do. Both Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium will appeal to younger travelers, and there’s something for everyone. Each spring, the Flower Fields, a 50-acre hillside covered with colorful ranunculus through May, attracts admirers, photographers, weddings, and other events. Visitors can tour the orchid greenhouse, picnic, or take tractor-driven wagon rides. Ocean beaches include Tamarack State Beach, with picnic areas, lifeguards, and a path along the Carlsbad Seawall ideal for strolling, biking, or skating. South Carlsbad Beach offers campgrounds along the beach. South Ponto Beach is known for surfing, and it’s perfect for families with facilities that include restrooms and showers. A destination for craft beer lovers, at least nine breweries welcome visitors for a taste.

      Me too, Nancy. What fun it would be to explore here. 🙂

    When I first saw all those flowers, I thought of the tulip festival they have going on around here each Spring! Gorgeous shot!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:38 am

      It’s a beautiful place and I’ll bet it smells so very good. 🙂

    So beautiful. I also thought it was the tulip fields at first.

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:37 am

      Nope, but it sure is pretty. 🙂

    WOW, that is so pretty. I’m like the others and though they were tulip fields. Another blogger always visits a tulip farm and it’s so pretty

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:37 am

      You must be talking about Sharla from Beaded Tail. She loves those tulips. 🙂

  5. May 8, 2019 at 2:33 am

    Wow! So beautiful and colorful!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:36 am

    wow! that flower field looks amazing. I wonder what it smells like. I’d love to go there someday

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:36 am

      I’m guessing it smells heavenly. 🙂

  7. May 8, 2019 at 3:23 am

    That LQQKS beautiful so colourful must be brilliant viewing it from the sky above 😉

      May 8, 2019 at 10:35 am

      I hadn’t thought of that. Let’s rent a plane and see what it looks like from the sky. 🙂

  8. May 8, 2019 at 3:34 am

    Wow, that is one bunch of flowers and all blooming at once. Fantastic picture. Sandee, you and Zane have a really good day.

      May 8, 2019 at 10:35 am

      Spring is just the best season to me and this is just one reason why. You have a really good day too, Marg. 🙂

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:34 am

      I agree. Many things to do. I love spring and all the wonderful colors. You have a terrific day too. 🙂

  10. May 8, 2019 at 3:54 am

    Absolutely beautiful! It reminds Mom of the tulip fields in Holland.

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:34 am

      I’m betting those are breathtakingly beautiful too. 🙂

  11. May 8, 2019 at 4:08 am

    All that beauty in one place, stunning!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:33 am

      I thought so too. 🙂

    Gorgeous! I was surprised to learn this was in CA – expected the caption to read Netherlands.

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:33 am

      Nope, it’s in California. Happy day. 🙂

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:32 am

      Yes it would and I’m guessing it does on a regular basis. You have a blessed week too. 🙂

  16. May 8, 2019 at 5:37 am

    California does have some beyond beautiful places that i’d love to visit.

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:31 am

      Just bring lots of money because everything is very expensive. 🙂

  17. May 8, 2019 at 6:04 am

      I’ve never been, but would love to see this. 🙂

  19. May 8, 2019 at 7:50 am

    Beautiful share!It is funny because my hubby’s co worker loves to take his phamily to Carlsbad. He recommended it when we travel this summer. Our middle thinks it is sad her dad has never been to a beach! SO we are making a short trek to visit a beach for him. Thank you for sharing and always being such a great friend! HUGS xo

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:30 am

      To the beach it is. I grew up on the ocean. Many have never seen it though. It’s an amazing thing to see. Hugs back, Anne. 🙂

    Acres of ranunculus!! What a perfect choice for a wordless Wednesday in the spring,

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:29 am

      I’m glad you approve, Jan. I thought it just shouted spring. 🙂

  21. May 8, 2019 at 8:26 am

    I think it’s interesting that bees and insects don’t see the colors like we do, but are drawn in by ultraviolet and scent!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:28 am

      It is amazing indeed. We each have our roles to play. 🙂

  22. May 8, 2019 at 8:41 am

    Sunning colors! How fun! Have a lovely day today!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:28 am

      We are off to the boat for a long weekend. See you on Monday. Hugs to you and Russell and lots of lovies to Miss Lucy. 🙂

    How beautiful! I can only get those flowers to grow in pots here. I never thought I’d see fields of them, stunning!

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:27 am

      There are many fields of flowers here and there and they are worth seeing. 🙂

  24. May 8, 2019 at 8:53 am

    Hi Sandee, now that is a sight for sore eyes! A beautiful patchwork of flowers… Not so good for hay fever sufferers though.


    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:27 am

      I don’t suffer from that but many do. I would love to see this in person. 🙂

  25. May 8, 2019 at 8:54 am

    It figures that it would be around navigable water.

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:24 am

      Of course. We’re boaters. 🙂

  30. May 8, 2019 at 9:31 am


    WOW, that’s such gorgeous! I’d love to see this!! There are places along I-40 each spring/summer where the state has a heavy spray of poppies or wild flowers or daffodills. I always love happening upon these spots, too. It makes me happy all over to see splashes of color. 🙂

    • Sandee
      May 8, 2019 at 10:23 am

      Me too. Spring is such a magical time. 🙂

  31. May 8, 2019 at 11:11 am

  35. May 8, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    What a gorgeous sight. I used to plant ranunculus in my yard. They are so gorgeous. I’ve only been to Carlsbad in the winter. Wish I’d been there at a time to see these. Thanks for linking us up, Sandee. Hugs, Janet
