Updated: 23 April 2018
Although it may not feel like it in some still-chilly parts of the country, spring has technically arrived, which means it’s only a matter of time before beautiful flower fields bloom all over the country. To help you plan the best trip to enjoy nature’s beauty at this time of year, we’ve compiled a list of the best places to go wildflower watching as winter finally melts away.

Orange County, California

It may be difficult to tear your eyes away from the majestic California coastline in Orange County, but those who do in the spring will be rewarded with the sight of beautiful sunflower fields that appear every year. But there’s no need to choose – why not go to the beach, hop in the ocean, and then dry off with a walk through a beautiful sunflower field?

New York City

The famous urban jungle of New York City may not be the most obvious place to find a field of flowers, but that’s just what you’ll find on many small parks that are scattered throughout New York City. Some of the most beautiful run up the center of Park Avenue, from midtown to the Upper East Side. Manicured yet vibrant, you’ll feel transported to nature, even with taxis zooming past.

Minnesota

Up in the northernmost corner of Minnesota, a strange and beautiful flower called the hoary vervain is the star of the show. The flower, which has a fuzzy bulb near its top, right underneath a few delicate purple petals, is especially beautiful in the town of Glacier Ridge.

Oregon

Drive across Oregon in the springtime and you’ll be likely to find a field of poppies before driving too long. The breathtaking site is absolutely worth pulling over for – many of the poppy fields are not limited to a single color, and are instead comprised of a riot of red, yellow, and orange. Remember to bring the camera for these in particular.

Hawaii

Hawaii may be most famous for palm trees, but some parts of the state are also covered in bright orange flowers called “ice flowers” come spring time. Just the thing for when you’ve had enough of the beach for a day.

Florida

Florida may also be better known for palm trees than it is for flowers, but to think of it this way would be to do a disservice to some of the beautiful flowers that bloom every spring in the sunshine state. One of the most striking is the achemea, which are so unusual and beautiful it will be be difficult to tear your eyes from them.

Los Angeles

Walking around in some parts of Los Angeles, you’ll feel you’ve been transported to a Greek island thanks to all the bougainvillea blooming. Santa Monica has some of the most abundant patches of this flower, which looks especially beautiful right next to the ocean.
