See a different side to Southern Cali in Fillmore

Strolling down the palm-shaded streets of historic Fillmore, you can imagine you're a fat cat of the old Southern Pacific surveying one of the new backcountry Californian towns that's just been connected to your ever-expanding empire of rails. Or, you can just enjoy the local diners, the engrossing 1900s architecture, the wood-faced theater buildings, the bottle-clinking wineries, and the charming town greens where bougainvillea blooms in the summertime. You can pick from oodles of Fillmore vacation rentals, too – think elegant Spanish-style haciendas in the hills, and hearty Americana ranches with pools and palms.

Things to do

From history to national forests in Fillmore

The attractions you're likely to unearth in Fillmore will depend entirely on what sort of trip you're after. You can photograph the pretty facades of the aged Fillmore Towne Theater, and unravel stories of the great Southern Pacific at the Railroad Visitor Center – restored train depots and working turntables included. Or, you can bag a Fillmore vacation rental close to Los Padres National Forest. That's where the crashing waterfalls of the Punch Bowls canyon carve through the peaks. Condors can be spotted here, careering through the air, and it's where the Dough Flat Trailhead weaves up past Alamo Mountain.


Get your fill of timeless California in Fillmore

Fillmore's characterful town core means that simply strolling between the turn-of-the-century theater houses and pharmacists, local cafes and pretty boutiques along Main Street is one of the top things to do. Not heart-thumping enough for you? No worries. Los Padres looms to the north, coming with canyons and creeks and gorges to hike over, mountain summits to conquer and waterfalls to wonder at. See, it's not all cozy tearooms and western street life he – the natural world is as prominent as the cultural.


Long seasons and Cali sun in Fillmore

Fillmore's perch below the rugged Transverse Ranges of Southern California means that it enjoys pretty much the same year-round warmth as LA. That's great news if you were thinking of booking your Fillmore vacation rental during the winter, when the weather is still fine for sightseeing along Main Street, and there are some serious bargains to be had, to boot. It's also excellent if you were eyeing up a luxury villa in the hills, because the months between May and October virtually all promise oodles of sun and soaring temperatures.

Natural features

Fillmore is a gateway to the peaks

As you drive north out of Los Angeles and hop over the Santa Clarita River, Fillmore can be seen nestled below the serrated ridges of the Topatopa Mountains. These are wedged into the very middle of the Transverse Ranges, and offer a land of chaparral-clad hills and scrub-dressed valleys – a place that's perfect for spotting condors in the skies. The Los Padres National Forest encompasses most of the territory there, hosting wildflower meadows, sheer-cut canyons, waterfalls with splash pools, and big swathes of ponderosa pine woods.
