Do you crave small-town life but don’t want to give up the perks of a metropolitan area? Then Fallbrook is the perfect place for you! Located an hour’s drive from San Diego, Fallbrook is a charming rural community that is a wonderful place to live. Here are just a few of the things that will make you fall in love with Fallbrook.
Amazing access to local produce
Did you know that Fallbrook is most famous for its avocado production? Every year the city hosts the Avocado Festival, a popular event that features exhibitors, artists, contests, live entertainment, and of course all the avocado dishes you can eat. Pick your own delicious strawberries at Kenny’s Strawberry Farm, or find unique pumpkins at Lavender Hill Pumpkins. Or take the kids for a fun afternoon at Old Fliegler’s Farm where you can learn about organic gardening while visiting with all the farm’s animals including goats, chickens, rabbits, donkeys, and pot-bellied pigs.
Beautiful natural spaces
We may be biased, but we think Fallbrook has some of the most beautiful natural spaces in all of North County. The Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens is an epic 30-acre property that has themed gardens, waterfalls, and even a heart-shaped lake. The gardens are open to the public seven days a week and are absolutely stunning. Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens & Nursery is another magical place where you can relax under the shade of live oaks and visit the wild bird sanctuary or the butterfly gardens. Learn about permaculture on a guided tour at Finch Frolic Garden, or check out the exotic birds at the Emerald Forest Bird Gardens. And don’t forget to spend some time at Live Oak Park, a 27-acre forest of ancient oak trees with hiking trails and picnic areas, or the beautiful Los Jilgueros Preserve, a 46-acre park in the heart of Fallbrook.
Vibrant cultural scene
If you’re into art and culture, then you’ll be happy to know that Fallbrook has a vibrant scene. The Fallbrook Art Center has a wide range of rotating exhibits that feature works by regional and international artists. The Fallbrook Gem & Mineral Museum features impressive specimens from all over the world and hosts gem shows and street fairs during the year. Do you need some art for your new Fallbrook home? Then head to California Watercolor where you can choose from a wide selection of paintings created by famous California artists. The Fallbrook Historical Society Museum is the place to go to learn about the early days of the community, while Railroad Heritage Park honors the rail industry that made Fallbrook’s agrarian past possible.
Excellent area wineries
Finally, one of the best-kept secrets about Fallbrook is how many superb wineries and vineyards are located here. To enjoy an Old-World, European atmosphere, check out Casa Tiene Vista Vineyard. Estate d’Iacobelli Winery features an elegant tasting room as well as a 125-tree olive grove. Roadrunner Ridge Winery is nestled on a hillside and offers a wine-tasting experience that is off the beaten path. Myrtle Creek Vineyards is another local gem in the rolling foothills of Fallbrook, and their brand-new tasting room is now open.
