Fallbrook is the best-kept secret in San Diego county.
The historic Fallbrook Hacienda is located in Fallbrook, North San Diego County, California.
Fallbrook once housed a stagecoach stop for the stage that ran from Temecula to San Diego. The city is known for its avocado groves and claims the title "Avocado Capital of the World". It hosts an Avocado Festival every spring. Fallbrook is also a center for the arts, and longtime residents as well as newcomers are continuously adding to local talent. In the 1940s and 1950s it was the home of film director Frank Capra, who raised olives on his Red Mountain Ranch. In the mid-2000s Fallbrook gained popularity among a few Hollywood celebrities. But with a population of about 30,000 people, this little slice of Paradise is a quaint little town, and those who live here in Fallbrook like to keep it that way.
Fallbrook has always been known for its consistently beautiful weather, year-round. As you drive up from San Diego, or down from Los Angeles and Orange County, you will slowly notice that your surroundings are changing; in Fallbrook, the pace is slower, the air is cleaner and drier, the vegetation is sub-tropical, and the breezes come directly inland from the Pacific Ocean.
The Fallbrook Hacienda is located parallel to the I-15 Freeway at the Fallbrook / Mission exit, and quite close to State Highway 76. The location is ideal, as it is a short distance from the ocean and HWY 5, 10 miles away from the malls, restaurants, auto dealerships and movie theatres of Temecula, and an easy 1-hour drive from San Diego.
