If what you are looking for is a peaceful, rural countryside with all the amenities nearby,
Fallbrook might just be that place. This Horse Community of 43,000 acres is spread over 127 square miles.
A drive around the area reveals active lifestyles. Four golf courses meander through rolling hills within a 10-mile

GROWTH: Fallbrook is just starting to experience the growth explosion of other parts of San Diego, Orange and
Riverside counties. Fallbrook is a quiet, hidden gem nestled among the hills of Southern California, tucked away in
the northern-most corner of San Diego county. As the crow flies, they are 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. As an
unincorporated part of San Diego County, they are administered by the County Board of Supervisors.
Bordered on the west by Camp Pendleton Marine Corp Base. A short drive east to Interstate 15, provides easy access
to Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange and Riverside counties. Interstate 5 in Oceanside, via Hwy. 76 and S13, is
less than thirty minutes west of Fallbrook.
COMMERCE: Fallbrook's primary business is agriculture. Known as the Avocado Capital of the World, we have been a
primary avocado growing area since the fruit was first planted locally in 1912. Annual revenues from avocados alone
reach approximately $26 million, earned mostly on small groves of two to ten acres. With nursery products and
market flowers annually producing approximately $83 million and citrus crops adding another $1.3 million,
agriculture accounts for just under a third of the area's personal income.
