Options for viewing the fields include driving, walking, biking, and tour buses or shuttles. Most of the flower fields are found on the west side of Interstate 5, between Fir Island Road (exit 221) and Josh Wilson Road (exit 231). During peak viewing time the roads through the blooming fields can become quite congested, particularly on weekends.
