Check out Oak Glen to spend the best time and head towards the picturesque town to the east. Go for the five-mile loop of orchards, ranches, shops and restaurants.
Oak Glen is a great alternative for the feel of New England and anyone looking for falls foliage. Be sure to take part the town’s most famous activity: apple picking. This town is a perfect alternative to canvassing L.A.’s farmers’ markets. Orchards, like Willowbrook Apple Farm (opens on Labor Day weekend), offers a cider drink which you can pair with a cinnamon roll or an apple dumpling from Apple Annie’s Restaurant & Bakery.
After that, go for the Turquoise Pueblo on your way back to L.A. for beautiful handmade Native American jewelry.
