Some folks who have yet to visit Fallbrook have the idea that this is largely an equestrian area where folks enjoy country living surrounding the downtown area’s small-town charm. While this is true, it sometimes comes as a surprise to these folks that Fallbrook has a thriving art community and has even been named on John Villani’s list of 100 Best Art Towns in America.

The art scene here includes the exhibits and events offered by Fallbrook Art Center, public art installations, an art in the park program for students, Pops on the Green, Fallbrook Brandon Gallery, Fallbrook Film Factory, Mission Theater, and community programming and classes through the Fallbrook School of the Arts. Fallbrook Arts, Inc. and Fallbrook Art Association, Inc. are two local groups dedicated solely to supporting the arts in and around Fallbrook, and Fallbrook Arts, Inc. is the parent organization for most of the above-mentioned community programming.

Aside from the many art-related events you will see in Fallbrook throughout the year, other community events include the well-known Fallbrook Avocado Festival, Holiday in the Village, Fallbrook Christmas Parade, Fallbrook Scarecrow Days, movies in the park, Fallbrook Holiday Tree Lighting, Stagecoach Sunday, Reins Country Hoedown, and the Fallbrook Garden Club Tour.

Stallion Hills Recreation

Stallion Hills Parks & Recreation

Some of the homes in Stallion Estates has swimming pools or horse facilities, which means outdoor recreation can begin close to home. There are plenty of riding trails in the area, Fallbrook Riders Field is just a short drive away, boarding and training stables are close at hand, and, like most of North County San Diego, equestrians will find this area to be perfectly tailored to fit their lifestyle.

If your time on the trails is not always on horseback, you might also want to check out one of the nature preserves managed by the Fallbrook Land Conservancy. A few of the closest options are Hellers Bend Preserve, Dinwiddie Preserve and Los Jilgueros Preserve, but there is nearly a dozen from which to choose, as well as several miles of the Santa Margarita River Trail System that are also managed by the conservancy. Be sure to visit the Fallbrook Land Conservancy website before heading to one of the preserves, since some of them are not open to the public and some are periodically closed, in whole or in part, to protect vulnerable habitats. Miles of additional hiking, riding or mountain biking trails can be found across North County, including in nearby Cleveland National Forest and Palomar Mountain State Park.

If you prefer a picnic in the park or community sports leagues, you will likely be spending some time at one of Fallbrook’s community parks, including Ingold Sports Park, Live Oak Park, Ball Park, Don Dussault County Park, Clemmens Lane Park, and the Fallbrook Community Center and Park. At the community center, you will also find a variety of programming options, including sports, activities and classes for youth, teens, adults and seniors.

Those more inclined to spend their weekends playing tennis or golf will find plenty of golf courses and country clubs throughout North County and Temecula.
