Often referred to as “The Friendly Village”, Fallbrook is famous for its avocado groves and the scenic hills and views that entice visitors and would-be home buyers alike.
For people that are hooked on the outdoors, Fallbrook may be your be-all and end-all in terms of places to live. It is very close to the foothills and offers a number of established hiking trails that are open to everyone. These are not just your run of the mill easy-going trails mind you, some are fairly difficult and intense like the Monserate Mountain Trail Loop. While paths such as Rock Mountain Trail, Heller’s Bend Preserve, and the Santa Margarita Trail are more moderate, catering to both beginners and more advanced hikers. All these trails, both easy and intense offer hikers amazing views and fantastic hikes.
Fallbrook residents have a great sense of community that is actively fostered through weekend farmer’s markets and similar events. There are golf courses, galleries, shops, and even casinos, that further strengthen the sense of community through organized events.
Fallbrook also has the Ingold Sports Park, a multi-use sports complex that is used to promote a healthy and active lifestyle among Fallbrook residents. The Sports Park plays host to several sports, like soccer, softball, rugby, and the like. These events are not limited to one age group; residents from kids all the way to adults and seniors can participate in events and tournaments, making Fallbrook wholesome and really oriented for family-fun.
