Fall is upon us here in Paso Robles, though it might a little different than what you’re used to if you’re coming from out of state; here, you’ll have no use for the scarfs and long coats most often associated with this time of year – not when the temperatures are still in the seventies! However, our warm weather doesn’t mean that we don’t have the same seasonal traditions as elsewhere. In fact, one of the most enjoyable aspects of this season is visiting the local farms and tasting the delicious fresh fruit and vegetables that Paso Robles produces.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled three of the best ways to experience the fall during your stay at Adelaide Inn.
Jack Creek Farms
With Halloween just around the corner, what better way to get in to the ghoulish spirit than with a sea of pumpkins? That’s just what you’ll find at Jack Creek Farms, which is located just 15 minutes from our inn and features a host of pumpkins perfect for pies, soups, or Jack o’ Lanterns. They even have 100-pound-plus pumpkins available, which are fun if your car is big enough to transport it. You can also taste their delicious cider and honey, pick your own apples, or get lost in the hay maze – entertainment for the whole family!
Mt. Olive Organic Farm
Paso Robles is deeply connected to its surrounding land, and one of the best ways to see this in action is by visiting a farm that has a strong commitment to sustainable agricultural practices. Mt. Olive Organic Farmis just a short 10 minute drive from our inn; visitors can take a tour to learn about their farming techniques, visit their petting farm to get up close and personal with their llamas and goats, or try their delicious Red Fuji Apples. Also be sure to pick up some strawberries before you leave – they’re Mt. Olive’s specialty, and not to be missed!
1st Annual Golden Oak Honey Festival
Those lucky enough to be visiting us on the weekend of the 25th October get to attend an event that will hopefully become a Paso Robles tradition. The 1st Annual Golden Oak Honey Celebration is designed to commemorate the best of fall, from the changing colors to the seasonal produce, and is set to feature a host of locally grown food, antiques, arts, and even bee-keeping seminars! The event is free and takes place downtown from 9am – 3pm.
Whatever you decide to do, you’re bound to have a wonderful fall experience in Paso Robles. And after a long-day of sightseeing – and eating – you can return to your spacious room at Adelaide Inn knowing you get to do it all again tomorrow.
