7 of The Best Places to Get Into The Autumn Spirit in Los Angeles

October 1, 2019

Who said we can't experience some crisp Autumn weather here in the ever sunny Los Angeles! Even though the belief is that all Los Angelinos experience a type of perma-summer, we are giving you 12 ultra-Autumn locations that will make you forget all about summer! So, grab your boots and sweaters it's time for pumpkin patches and apple picking! 

1. Oak Glen

Oak Glen is a small apple-growing mountain community, located in the San Bernadino mountains, just 60 miles east of Los Angeles. Here, visitors can do everything from picking their own apples to indulging in homemade pies, jams and the critically acclaimed Apple donuts at Snow-line Orchard. Along with the ever-present apple motif, Oak Glen is also known for its incredible fall foliage. It's easy to drive from ranch to ranch to explore the natural beauty that each ranch has to offer. We suggest ending your visit with a stop at Oak Glen institution, Law's Coffee Shop for a slice of home-made apple pie and a mug of warm cider...they've been an Oak Glen staple since 1953!  

Second day of fall at #SnowlineOrchard. Don't miss out on spending a day with us in #oakglen creating memories and continuing traditions. Mark your calendars before the season gets away from you! #FarmerMert #anappleaday #Appleseason2019 #appleciderdonuts

I've been going to @lawscafe for breakfast and apple pie (to be truthful it's apple pie for breakfast) for approximately 28 years now. They still make the best apple pie I've ever had. The cinnamon syrup takes perfection and makes it even better (if that's possible). On a related note, I have yet to find a perfect slice of pie in Redlands. It's one of Redlands' few faults. But I won't give up yet. #lawscoffeeshop #hotapplepie #oakglen #california #thepietrail #pieaddict #pielove #fujifaves #feedfeed #instafood #yum #fujimamapie

2. Malibu Creek State Park

If you're looking to stay closer to the city, Malibu Creek State Park is the place to see Autumn in full swing. From the beautiful color-chaning leaves to various hiking trails, this little gem of a state park is the perfect place to take a reprive from city life. Located in the Santa Monica Montains, Malibu State Park is just off the Las Virgenes road exit on the 101 Freeway in Calabasas.

WHERE IS YOUR HAPPY PLACE? Truly, I want to know. Is it by the ocean? In the middle of the city, on the rooftop of a building? is it in your car as your driving to get no where fast? Mine will forever be in the middle of a forest. Although I don’t get to go camping as much as I used to, if I find a quite place and close my eyes I can picture myself there and that makes me smile. I’m not sure what it is about a forest that is calming to me... maybe because it reminds me of my grandmas place in Romania or maybe it’s because you often loose service in the forest and thats the only way to force me to not work. Either way I’m at peace there. So I wanted to start out my day by having YOU think of your happy place because even that moment of happiness can change your perspective on today. #ACIGdiary
