  • Sprawling acres of beautiful flowers! And you can see the flowers while shopping in nearby shops. Nice gift shop & ample parking. Get there when it opens to miss the big crowds. Incredible staff...sweet people. Good for large groups and there are tractor rides if you can't walk much.
  • Amazing place to go see the flowers. The people there do a really good job on their display. Really nice for people from cold country to come and see the Early blooms that we have here in southern California. Easy access off interstate 5 at Palomar airport road. Stop by sometime I'm sure you will enjoy yourself!
