Come to Fallbrook

I tell people:”Come to Fallbrook and taste the cuisine”, but there is so much more to do: You can visit art galleries and the art school, check out the many bronzes thru out town. Take a Kentucky Fried chicken lunch to Live Oak Park and walk along the stream bed, enjoy a bike ride down Gird Road, or cruise under the oaks on east Live Oak Road. One can drive down to De Luz and dip your toes into Sandia Creek crossing, and if you feel brave - climb to the top of the big rock. Continue on thru De Luz to cross the Tenaja Pass and make a day drive out of it. Be sure to pack some of the local fruit for the day journey. Explore the town’s history at the Historical Society open on Thursday and Sunday 1-4. Sit in the old church and meditate Sunday morning and think of all the generations that sat in those pews. Take a driving tour of the towns historic old homes. Stroll thru town and shop at the unique bazaars or shop all the thrift stores, antique shops and barns for treasures. There are approximately 325 geo caches in the area if that is your thing. There is a planned hike every Sunday morning at 7:30 to hike up Monserate Mountain or walk around the paths at Los Jilgueros Land Conserve on Mission Road. Not to mention 7 choice golf courses in the immediate vicinity: Pala Casino, Temecula Creek, Pala Mesa, Fallbrook Golf Club, Golf Club of California, San Luis Rey and Lawrence Welk.

There’s plenty to do in Fallbrook…and were proud of the Avocados too.

Fall brook is a nice community close to San Diego Area


Its a nice community close to Welk Resort, Temecula Wine Tasting etc.

It also has STELLAR avocados and lots of avocado trees.

Avocadoqueen - you might want to make your story a traveler article instead


That way it will remain more visible - forum questions remain on site; but generally after a day or two become in a way "yesterdays' news.{

It's a little spot tucked on the eastern corner of Camp Pendleton.

Sorry, but not on my bucket list.

I am sure it is a very nice place to live. It does not strike me as a tourist venue.

When someone asks for places of the beaten track, this may be a great place to go to and relax. Now who has the best Guac in town ?

Hello AvocadoQueen, and welcome to TripAdvisor and the Fallbrook forum.

You are like me. . . getting the news and information about your community and area (North County) out to the general public. TripAdvisor gets a lot of viewers here on the forums, so I understand what you are doing.

Full disclosure: I graduated from Oceanside High School, and know (or knew) Fallbrook rather well. Your description of Fallbrook brings back memories to me. . . (smile)

Like mini mentioned already, I'd recommend making a Traveler Article on Fallbrook. The Avocado Festival is now over for this year, so nothing to mention on TripAdvisor (TA) about it until maybe a month or so before it comes around again in April 2014. Fairs, festivals, and those kinds of events are good additions to talk about here on TA, and add value to a visitor's experience. I do mention them in my region, the Antelope Valley, as they come up, but I don't stress them. I'm not the paid tourism 'dog in the AV after all. . . this is a hobby!

Please feel free to Private Message (PM) me via clicking on my username and discuss this further, if you desire. Welcome aboard! For the tourist who wants peace, quiet, laid back downtime and beautiful inland North County scenery after a busy time of it at say LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, you can't go wrong with Fallbrook.

Fallbrook is a nice little town. My mom and I went out there one Mother''s Day weekend some years ago - we had a nice weekend getaway at Pala Mesa resort and drove around the area, etc. Very nice.

Best guacamole? La Caseta Mexican.

Avocado queen...... Do you know Murphy's Printing on Alvarado? That's my sister's place!

Although Fallbrook is a very picturesque place it really doesn't have a whole heck if a lot of touristic value. Generally, if someone is going to check out the area it would be on the way to Temecula.

I think I've seen Murphy's Printing, as I vary the drive I do in and out of Fallbrook every day for work, heading in and out of the Fallbrook gate LOL. I will make sure to look next week!

There are things to see in Fallbrook, some nice shops, a quaint neighborhood theater (they're presenting "Annie Get Your Gun" at the moment), Farmer's Market, etcetera. I just wouldn't consider it a destination spot per se (lived in Bonsall for a while, went to Fallbrook for the nice Albertson's that's there).

Actually Sal, next time you are in Solana Beach you should give it a try if you are bored one day.

Fallbrook has a cute little Downtown area (Main St and Alvarado) with some nice shops, antique shops, good restaurants and Fallbrook in general is a just nice town. It feels more like the mid-west or Central Valley than a city in one of the most populous counties in the country.

It is especially fun at Avocado Festival time.
