Something about the fall makes old towns a go-to destination for day trips. Maybe it’s the falling leaves framed against brick buildings, but there’s just something cozy about these towns. Pick up your favorite adventurer and get exploring! If you’re looking for a rich arts scene, check out downtown Santa Ana for its eclectic mix of art, dining and pop up museums. And if you’re feeling extra adventurous, head to the mountains for the quiet charm of Crestline.
