More Information About Fallbrook
Fallbrook is known as the avocado capital of the world. Fallbrook’s country roads will surprise you with breathtaking beauty and a rural, historic atmosphere. There is also a growing number of wineries and vineyards sprouting up around Fallbrook. Avocado orchards, orange groves, and nurseries surround the community. Don’t miss some of the best art and antique shops, bountiful produce stands, exotic nurseries, and some of the best golf in the county. A very friendly town, merchants, and residents welcome the opportunity to share stories about their community and their country lifestyle.
The busy and vibrant town center is located near the western boundary. The town surrounds a unique historical district that has become the focus of a current revitalization effort. Each spring, Fallbrook hosts the Avocado Festival, which is a showcase of the area’s rich agricultural heritage. While olives were a significant crop in Fallbrook’s early days, nursery plants account for the greatest revenue numbers today. However, it is the immensely popular avocado that has become Fallbrook’s trademark product. The community of Fallbrook consists of 36,000 acres and is located south of Riverside County and east of Camp Pendleton. Its neighboring communities are Bonsall to the south, De Luz to the north, Pala to the east, and Rainbow to the northeast.
Most of the area is characterized by rolling hills covered in avocado and citrus orchards. However, as the topography changes, it creates natural buffers that separate Fallbrook from its neighbors. The Santa Margarita River crosses through the rugged terrain in the northern portion of the planning area and the San Luis Rey River runs along the southern boundary that Fallbrook shares with Bonsall. Steep slopes and Interstate 15 dominate the eastern portion.
Fallbrook residents have done a great job of recording and preserving the area’s history over the years. If you are interested in learning more about Fallbrook’s past, there are several interesting articles at the Fallbrook Historical Society Museum at the corner of Rocky Crest Street and Hill Street that is worth a visit.
