What Is There To Do?

The Flower Fields has many things the whole family can enjoy. Not only do you get the opportunity to witness acres of gorgeous flowers there are a few things onsite that are just as beautiful. There is a lot to learn about the history of Flowers. There is also an opportunity to ride around on a tractor around the fields. If you get hungry there is a snack stand that offers fun treats like ice cream, chocolate covered strawberries and more.

If you need to quench your thirst there is a fresh lemonade stand that serves some delicious made to order lemonade. We unfortunately didn’t get a chance to eat at the Pizza Trolly but good to know there is another food option. They also have Santa’s Playground for the kiddos. Really just being there was enough and getting to explore the art and flowers was breathtaking.

Can you take pictures on the field?

Absolutely! This is my first year visiting The Flower Fields so I wasn’t sure what to expect when it comes to pictures. The website mentions bulky photography equipment isn’t allowed so I didn’t get a chance to bring my tripod but quickly learned it was definitely doable. As long as you aren’t having a full on professional photography session you should be fine.

Of course we do not want to ruin the flowers so thankfully there are makers on where you can take photos. The green tape keeps you away from the flowers so you don’t have to worry about accidentally stepping on them.

To get the perfect shot you just have to work the angles to avoid any green tape and if there is thankfully there are a ton of apps that can remove it if it is an eye sore.

Where can I buy tickets?

All tickets must be purchased online at You need a reservation to check in. Once you are inside there is no time limit so take your time to really enjoy it and get the perfect shot. The staff was so friendly and helpful.
