One of the best things to do in Apple Hill™ this time of year is to go Christmas tree hunting. Instead of buying your tree at a local lot, finding your Christmas tree becomes a family event. Families come from all over the Sacramento area armed with warm clothes and hot chocolate to find the perfect Christmas tree to bring home. With 16 different Christmas tree farms in the area, there are a lot of trees to choose from!
Leaf peepers, social media rock stars, and anyone looking for Mother Nature’s annual show of colors will find that in spades in and around El Dorado County during the autumn, where the trees explode in color from late September through early December.
Visit the Apple Hill Growers, 50+ farms and ranches nestled in the spectacular and majestic Sierra Nevada foothills, for an unforgettable and delicious trip.

There are also ample kids’ activities, you-pick farms, and Apple Hill pumpkin patches for a fun day out with the family. What’s not to love?
