Destination guide

Avocados for everyone in smalltown SoCal

Located about an hour north of San Diego, the small town of Fallbrook definitely has location on its side. It's one of the few places in California and the US with soil ideal for growing avocados, making its self-proclaimed title of "The Avocado Capital of the World" quite appropriate. It's also under a 30-minute drive to the beach, and just an hour north of San Diego. This means a Fallbrook vacation rental will put you at the center of delicious food, coastal breezes, and a thriving cultural scene, all paired with pleasantly perfect weather, practically all year long.

Things to do

Fun for foodies, families, and everyone in between

Without a doubt, The Avocado Festival is Fallbrook's main event, with throngs of crowds drawn downtown each April to celebrate this much loved veg. Foodies visiting in the off-season can still find happiness at the local farmers' market, while families should make sure the Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens & Nursery is at the top of their list. Performances and concerts are regularly hosted by the Fallbrook School of the Arts, and numerous galleries are open throughout the town. Shoppers can also get their fill, thanks to a budding antique scene in Fallbrook's downtown.

Activities

Arts and antiques in the Avocado Capital

While Fallbrook has lots to offer to visitors and locals alike, nothing is as impressive as its self-proclaimed title: The Avocado Capital of the World. Each April since 1986, Fallbrook has held the Avocado Festival, when the whole town comes together to celebrate the annual harvest and upcoming avocado season, which lasts through August. Keep this in mind when browsing Fallbrook vacation rentals, but guacamole isn't the only draw. The town also has a thriving arts scene, antique shops, and ideal weather all year long - all less than 30 minutes from the beach.

Weather

Pleasant and mild through all 4 seasons

There are plenty of reasons people flock to SoCal, and the weather is certainly up there. Temps may drop to the 40s in winter and climb to the 90s in summer, but for the most part, Fallbrook is pleasant and mild through all 4 seasons. Thanks to the town's proximity to the ocean, days start off foggy and end a bit breezy, and if it does rain, expect it to happen between November and April. Keep this in mind when searching for a Fallbrook vacation rental, and pack an extra sweater for those cool, humid spring evenings.

Natural features

Rolling hills and ocean breezes

It's Fallbrook's lush green hills that we have to thank for all the avocados - as well as strawberries, tomatoes, and fields of sub-tropical flowers. The hills also provide dramatic scenery, and plenty of stunning hilltop Fallbrook vacation rentals to choose from. Locals and visitors alike love the ocean breezes that blow in from a shoreline just a 30-minute drive away, while urbanites will appreciate that San Diego's bustling downtown is less than an hour away... assuming, of course, the traffic cooperates.
