Aptly named the Avocado Capital of the World, this artistic Southern California city is quiet, yet bursting with activities for the entire family. Experience a new side of California when you choose one of our lovely Fallbrook vacation rentals, and you'll quickly see why it is known by many as "The Friendly Village."
Where is Fallbrook, CA?
Surrounded by rolling hills and lush greenery, this city is located in north San Diego County. Enchanting Temecula wine country is less than 14 miles northeast, sparkling Lake Elsinore is 30 miles away for a fantastic day of boating, and San Diego is the perfect 56-mile day trip away for a visit to Sea World or the San Diego Zoo at Balboa Park.
It isn't a trip to California without a day (or two!) at the beach playing in the sand and running through the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. Encinitas is just 32 miles southwest, and don't miss seeing the famous Del Mar racetrack, just a few miles south of Encinitas and gorgeous Solana Beach.
