The Grinch's Grotto at Westfield UTC

For those feeling a bit “Grinchy” this year, Westfield UTC will host The Grinch’s Grotto, an imaginative take on holiday photo shoots that comes complete with a burlap sack full of presents, a Grinch-stylized holiday tree and a backlit fireplace with hanging stockings just as depicted in the book. Fitting for the home of Dr. Seuss, guests can enjoy this one of a one-of-a-kind visit from November 27 - December 31 with The Grinch in his special San Diego cave next to Geppetto's Toys for a photo-shoot and other special surprises that are both intimate and in true Grinch fashion—socially-distant.

The Flower Fields

Mar 1 - May 9, 2021

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
