Flower Fields

From April through October – and sometimes longeryou’ll see spectacular patches of colors as you drive near the farm fields of Lompoc Valley – Stock, Larkspur, Delphinium and Bells of Ireland along with other cut flower varieties are grown in abundance by local growers such as Ocean View Flowers.

Most of the flower fields are located west of Old Town Lompoc, along Central Avenue and Union Sugar Avenue. But some are also located at the east entrance to town.

As a courtesy to the growers, visitors and photographers are asked to please keep vehicles on paved roads when touring and taking photos, and do not walk (or allow your pets or children to run) in the flower fields.

In springtime, visitors can also enjoy wildflowers blooming on country roads and hiking trails around Lompoc – poppies, lupine, mustard and more can often be spotted from late March through April.

LOMPOC WINE TASTING

The secret is out … the rolling hills around Lompoc are producing some of California’s best wines.

The Sta. Rita Hills wine growing region, situated between Lompoc and Buellton, is recognized internationally for its award-winning wines. In summer, while most of Santa Barbara County is basking in high temperatures, the geography of the Sta. Rita Hills funnels cool maritime fog from the coast up the valley, creating the ideal climate for growing exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. (more…)
