Apple Picking Tour at Oak Glen in California

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

Recently, my family and I took a day trip to Riley’s Apple Farm in Oak Glen, California to go apple picking! Needless to say, it was hardly September, and Autumn tends to hit Southern California a tad bit late; it wasn’t exactly the perfect weather for apple picking, but luckily it wasn’t too hot. If you’re planning on visiting Oak Glen, I suggest waiting until Autumn fully sets in to experience the pumpkin picking as well! The scenery will definitely be a lot more Autumnal and perfect for pictures.

We had around a two hour drive to get to the farm and we got there around 10 am. It was somewhat empty around this time as it got more crowded later in the day. The first thing we did after arriving was... eat!



Of course we had to try some apple pie (and the cinnamon roll didn’t look too bad either), and we just devoured all this food in a little bakery with the cutest decorations.

After we enjoyed these pastries, we headed over to the apple picking! We all just grabbed a bag and started gathering. The field was filled with endless trees, and the view was breathtaking. We took a million and one pictures - I usually prefer to be behind the camera, so luckily my sister agreed to let me take photos of her!
