Oak Tree Village in Oak Glen, California started simply enough: by selling apples. Now a 14-acre park, restaurant and craft area welcomes visitors all year, though the weekends in the fall until Thanksgiving beckon the most. An approximately 90 minute drive from Los Angeles, weekend visitors can enjoy the changing leaves, apples, crafts, animals and live country music that make this place fun for the whole family.
Are you a singleton looking to enjoy fall in California? Though Oak Tree Village has an undoubtedly family vibe, you can still enjoy the apple pie, crafts and the petting zoo (though the latter is geared toward children) as a solo traveler. It’s a great place to visit if you are in the Oak Glen area for apple picking and cider tasting (going on now and into November). Weekday visits still hold some appeal, but many attractions are closed or have limited hours, so if you are a planner, this place is best visited on a weekend.
