Fall in Los Angeles is one of the best times to get outside and take in the views. If you’re looking for a fall activity to do by yourself or with friends this season, here are our recommendations for the best fall colors in Los Angeles.

Oak Glen

About an hour and a half away from your apartment for rent in Los Angeles is Oak Glen. Fall is a pretty big deal here. Oak Glen is also known as apple country. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with an array of bright colors. We suggest enjoying the fall foliage here while sipping on homemade apple cider and fresh donuts from the local ranches.


The Malibu Creek State Park

The Santa Monica Mountains provide some of the best opportunities for local leaf-peeping. At Malibu Creek Park, you’ll discover some lovely old-growth trees that turn all shades of fall as cooler air comes to town. This gorgeous spot is about 25 from your apartments in Larchmont Village.

Descanso Gardens

Over in La Cañada, about 13 miles from your Qwil apartments for rent, is one of our favorite botanical gardens in Los Angeles. The Descanso Gardens are home to more than 600 varieties of camellia flower (best seen between February and May). There is also plenty to see during the fall months, October and November especially. Some of the other gardens in Los Angeles include the Huntington Library and the LA Arboretum. All three provide a sea of gold during autumn, but we are partial to Descanso.  Snap a photo and tag @liveqwil on Instagram— we love seeing our residents enjoy the fall!


Big Bear

Get ready to take a mini road trip because one of the best places to catch fall foliage is in the mountains. One of the closest mountainous areas is Big Bear, two hours away from your Hollywood apartment in Los Angeles.

The lake is surrounded by trees, including evergreens, aspens, cottonwoods, and oaks. Keep in mind that the fall colors reach their peak from mid-October to early November. The best locations to see the beautiful fall colors in Big Bear are Mill Creek Road, the Pine Knot Trail, and Castle Rock Trail. Enjoy!

Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead is another beautiful area just a couple of hours outside of Los Angeles to enjoy the fall foliage. If you aren’t looking to travel far from your Qwil apartment for rent near Hollywood, we suggest taking a walk in surrounding neighborhoods. That includes Larchmont Village, Hancock Park, and Sherman Oaks. These areas are all between five to ten miles away and are great areas to enjoy fall colors.

Grab your camera, and hit the road as you take a break from your luxury apartment in Larchmont village for a friendly adventure that proves the mystery of nature.
