Tired of hanging out at your same old haunts every weekend? Pick up some new Carlsbad favorites this October from our list of lesser-known gems for Fall 2015 in North County San Diego.
- Stone Farms
- Pepper Tree Frosty
It’s all about craft beer in 2015, but there’s plenty to do for everyone in the family at Stone Farms. Although Stone Brewing Company owns and runs this Escondido farm, you don’t have to be a beer lover to have a great time here. Get an intimate look at the hops and organic produce at the 19-acre farm, enjoy some live music and indulge in wood-fired pizza, amazing beer or an October picnic at one of the farm’s picnic tables. This delightful destination is well worth the trek from Carlsbad. Don’t forget to grab a growler to go!
