Visit Oak Glen this Fall!
Oak Glen is a small agriculture community made up of family own bussinesses, local farmers, artisans. The first apple trees were planted here over 100 yeats ago! It is about a 2hr drive from Orange County, at the bottom of the San Bernardino Mountains which typically makes it 10-15 degrees cooler than Orange County. Plan for September – November for prime apple picking season. While you can visit year around you must prepare for snow if you visit in the winter and only select activities to be open year round.
Planning to visit & wondering what is there to do in Oak Glen? Oak Glen’s downtown consists of a 5 mile loop of shops, restaurants, camps, nature trails, farms & businesses! Stop for sweet treats and stay for activities, food and fun and of course apple picking!
Come for the day or stay at a bed & breakfast, RV facility or camping to make the trip longer.
