Fallbrook, CA - The Friendly Village

The charm of small-town America

If what you are looking for is a peaceful, rural countryside with all the amenities nearby, Fallbrook might just be that place. Our community of 43,000 is spread over 127 square miles. A drive around the area reveals active lifestyles. Four golf courses meander through rolling hills within a 10-mile radius of the town center. When tennis is the action, a missed back-hand shot is secondary to the magnificent panoramic views.
Sturdy white rail fences mark miles of equestrian trails, adjacent to avocado, lemon, cherimoya and macadamia nut groves, while floppy scarecrows and windmills watch over vegetable gardens in this relaxed, rural environment.
Fallbrook is just starting to experience the growth explosion of other parts of San Diego, Orange, and Riverside counties. The city is a quiet, hidden gem nestled among the hills of Southern California.
We are tucked away in the northern-most corner of San Diego county. As the crow flies, we are 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. As an unincorporated part of San Diego County, we are administered by the County Board of Supervisors. We are bordered on the west by Camp Pendleton Marine Corp Base. A short drive east to Interstate 15, provides easy access to Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange and Riverside counties. Interstate 5 in Oceanside, via Hwy. 76 and S13, is less than thirty minutes west of downtown.
Fallbrook is “life in the country” with a feel which sets us apart and gives all who live here a special pride. It is as country as you want yet within a two-hour drive of the major west coast urban areas

Much of Main Street will remind you of a vintage main avenue through the old part town. The wooden buildings, many of which are historical, with unique fronts, are but a small part of the charm of Fallbrook. Art, gifts, antiques, jewelry, and hand-made items abound in the area.

We are committed to preserving the quality of life with a design review process and a county-sponsored Rural Future Task Force. Fallbrook boasts a healthy retail and service business base. Main Street has preserved a turn-of-the-century charm with many of the commercial buildings dating to the late 1800s. Retail trade is supplemented by seven shopping centers in Fallbrook and in neighboring Bonsall.
Favorable climate is one of the most valuable assets of our community. Ideal year-round, with pleasant summers and mild winters, Fallbrook stands at elevations between 500 and 1500 feet, with an average around 685 feet.  We enjoy an average year-round temperature of 61 degrees. Due to the prevailing ocean breezes, the humidity is relatively low and constant.

Annual rainfall is roughly 16 inches and comes mostly between November and April. The area is ideal for avocados, fruits, strawberries, tomatoes and many sub-tropical fruits, vegetables, and flowers. We have over fifty wholesale and retail nurseries within the community

Fallbrook’s primary business is agriculture. Known as the Avocado Capital of the World, we have been a primary avocado growing area since the fruit was first planted locally in 1912. Annual revenues from avocados alone reach approximately $26 million, earned mostly on small groves of two to ten acres.

With nursery products and market flowers annually producing approximately $83 million and citrus crops adding another $1.3 million, agriculture accounts for just under a third of the area’s personal income.  Add to that the agricultural support services and the picture of an agri-economy becomes clear. The area’s groves also help maintain a circle of lush green, open spaces surrounding the town and verdant rolling hillsides.
