The Last, Best, Small Town
Sitting in the heart of the Santa Clara River Valley, Fillmore boasts a tourist train, citrus groves and a historic downtown, all great attractions for visitors. Ask any resident, however, and the features that truly set the town apart are its warm climate, small-town atmosphere and sense of community.
Although small, Fillmore likes to think big when it comes to tourism. Toppled by the 1994 Northridge earthquake and then rebuilt, its downtown retains old time California charm with the crispness of modern amenities.
Fillmore is also a gateway to the Los Padres National Forest, offering incredible mountain vistas and year-round hiking. Snow-capped peaks shine in winter.
