Fresh Fruits and Vegetables at the Avila Barn
The Avila Barn is nestled near the Avila Hot Springs on Avila Beach Drive. It's part farmers market with fresh produce and baked goods. Locals often stop by the barn to pick up a berry pie. Folks from out of town, drop by with the kids to see the farm animals. From goats to peacocks, the kids can get up close to pet and feed the animals.
The petting zoo is by far the biggest hit with the kids. Pick up some of the fresh greens from the barn and have the kids go around to each stall and feed the animals. They'll love it!

Have a picnic at the Avila Barn
The Bob Jones trail starts at Ontario road (just up the street from the Avila Barn) and ends in Avila Beach. Ride bikes from the barn to the beach on trail that is free from cars. Our four year old daughter was easily able to peddle herself all the way. This makes a great family activity.
