Discover one of Southern California’s hidden treasures.
If you think Southern California doesn’t have a change of seasons, an escape to Oak Glen will change your mind. Located about 90 miles from Los Angeles (on the way to Palm Springs) at an elevation of almost 5,000 feet is the Southland’s largest apple-growing community. More than a million visitors come year round to enjoy the peace and beauty of Oak Glen.
Oak Glen is open year round with 29+ individually owned and operated businesses including ranches, farms and orchards; restaurants and bakeries; unique shops; family entertainment and educational tours; wedding venues; camps and conference centers and overnight accommodations.
During apple harvest season, September through November, you can buy fresh crisp apples in the apple sheds by the bag, box, or bushel; buy fresh-pressed cider, apple butter, apple jelly, and other apple products; browse specialty shops; enjoy hearty country food in several family restaurants offering freshly baked hot apple pie and other tasty treats.
Visitors can enjoy family picnics; visit a candy shop; animal petting parks; take part in seasonal festivities; and stay overnight in a charming B&B.
