Fillmore is a city in Ventura County, California, United States in the Santa Clara River Valley. In an agricultural area with rich, fertile soil, Fillmore has a historic downtown that was established when the Southern Pacific built the railroad through the valley in 1887. The rail line also provided a name for the town: J. A. Fillmore was a general superintendent for the company's Pacific system. The population was 15,002 at the 2010 census, up from 13,643 at the 2000 census.

If you like honey, this is a place to stop. There are lots of honey merchandise and honey tasting. At one table, you can purchase 6 honey sticks for a dollar (various flavors such as cinnamon, apple, chocolate, gallberry etc.) The people are very nice and friendly.

Fillmore Fish Hatchery

Reviewed By Cammie6 - Moorpark, CA

A memorable experience feeding fish! Bring a pocket full of dimes and a cup! There are coin operated fish food dispensers there and you are encouraged to feed the fish! The fish are eagerly go for the food. These fish are destined to stock lakes. This is both fun & educational.

Bring your kids, your mom and dad, or just bring your special loved one. The train ride is a fairly short adventure from Fillmore to a gift shop on Saturday or to Piru and Bennets Honey Farm on Sunday. There are many other excursions available to change the scenery if you have done the weekend excursions. Very fun if you want to experience a traditional train ride. The kids will love it! Give it a try, you might be surprised!

Fillmore Historical Museum

Reviewed By Sue Z - Fillmore, California, United States

This is more of a historical park than must a museum. It includes a 1919 bunkhouse from Rancho Sespe, one of the original Spanish land grants in Ventura county; the original 1887 Fillmore Railroad Depot; the Hinckley House, a 1905 Craftsman bungalow which was designed and built for Fillmore's first dentist; and the original Bardsdale post office. There are various exhibits about the local area in the bunkhouse.

I would definitely recommend this for school groups or other groups interested in finding out more about the settlement of Ventura county and the Santa Clara Valley specifically.

The first floor of the bunkhouse and depot have handicapped access.

There is no entry fee, but a donation is suggested - $5 person, and $10 per family.

Giessinger Winery

Reviewed By VetteGuy - SoCal

Having passed through Fillmore multiple times, my wife had some free time and decided to stop at Giessinger Winery to taste some of their wines. Unfortunately, it proved to be a very bad idea. The tasting fee of $10 entitled us to taste a total of 8 wines. Since it was mid-afternoon, we chose to share a tasting. To say that the white wines were undrinkable would be an understatement and the reds were only fractionally better. The price point for their red wines was in the $30 range but the quality was in the Two Buck Chuck range. While I wasn't expecting a Napa Valley experience, it was amazing to me that this winery is able to sell a sufficient amount of wine to stay in business. After tasting two whites and two reds, we called it a day and chalked our visit up to an understanding that not all wineries in SoCal produce drinkable wines.

San Gabriel Mountains

This mountain range provides the only natural barrier to the expansion of Los Angeles.

Reviewed By David B L - Los Angeles, California

You'll see the San Gabriel Mountains from many venues in the LA basin from Pasadena & east, to when you top out on I-10 above Muholland. They run almost west to east and form the protective barriers for the valley. Lots of trails to hike, sights to see and specials to do. Driving the Angelus Crest Hwy. gives you a nice introduction, then go back for more. Remember to take extra water when hiking, plus hike w a buddy! Enjoy Nature. ...
