The winding and tree-shaded country roads are timeless, as is the quaint Fallbrook village that once served as a stagecoach stop for the stage that ran the Temecula-to-San Diego route. Also known as the “Avocado Capital of the World,” there are numerous fruit and vegetable stands offering bargain bags of luscious avocados along with other local produce.
With a population of around 30,500, Fallbrook has a seductive average year-round temperature of 61 degrees, with an average daytime high of 76 degrees. Most of the area is frost-free, which is a real benefit for the avocado, flower and citrus growers. And with over 60 wholesale and retail nurseries in the area, local fruit bowls and vases can stay continually fresh and full!
Homes in Fallbrook are also a real treat for most San Diego home shoppers. They love the larger lots, reasonable prices, the cool ocean breezes, good schools and the intimate hometown atmosphere.
It is still possible to find some excellent buys on Fallbrook real estate, which tends to lag in price behind coastal real estate in San Diego.
