Myrtle Creek Nursery
Free admission and parking make this sweet spot even sweeter, close to I-15 yet nestled in the hills around Myrtle Creek. Descendants of Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman built a charming house here in the late 1800s (tour with reservation). The Sherman family still owns the property, where visitors can wander gentle backcountry trails, see the 1895 Fallbrook Barn (with animals!), peer at miniature vignettes in the garden, and gaze in awe at giant live oaks. A café on site is the perfect setting for a piece of pie and a chat.
