Visit Stockton

The perfect guide for you and your family regarding all things Fall in Stockton, California!

Fall is here, and that means cooler weather, colorful scenery, football, and that exhilarating crisp feeling in the air! While there’s no denying that summer in Stockton, California was amazing, it’s easy to transition into Autumn if you embrace it fully. So how do Stocktonians savor this special time? Here are five ways to embrace Fall in Stockton:


1. Pick up a pie

Fall is a wonderful time to try new pies, thanks to the abundance of available fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. One bite, you will taste the difference from the pies at the Fruit Bowl! The collection of fall pies includes classics like pumpkin pie and apple pie, plus plenty of new pie flavors, too. In addition, the bakery offers frozen pies of fruit that may not be in season, so bring a cooler to take some home for a rainy day.

2. Be active outdoors

The brisk fall air means lovely walks through beautiful locations in Stockton. Don't miss the changing colors of the trees on the scenic campus of University of the Pacific. Grape vine colors come alive in the fall at Sorelle Winery where you can enjoy your homemade picnic before or after your tasting. Outdoor fall weather brings to mind the nostalgic days of youth and sports, especially football. Cheer on the San Joaquin Delta College Mustangs as they fight for glory on their way to the big time. 


3. Light some candles

They say smell is tied closely to memory. Pumpkin spice, warm vanilla, and cinnamon apple pie candles can always set the tone for a fall-inspired afternoon. Best Wishes in Lincoln Center is a feast for the senses from the moment you walk in the door. On the Miracle Mile, With Garden Flair embraces fall with candles and decorative items you won't want to leave without.


4. Put on a comfy sweater

Who doesn't love laying and accessorizing when the weather turns crisp? Find your favorite sweater, hat, or outfit at Lilou of the Valley Vintage. Lincoln Center is another great place to shop for fall fashion as they feature multiple clothing stores. 


5. Buy the drink

You know it is fall when that lovely word "pumpkin" starts to appear on coffee shop menus across the country. Stockton is no exception. A pumpkin spice latte is the quintessential drink of choice in autumn so get out there and get yours. Stop in and say hi to the friendly staff at Empresso Coffeehouse at their March Lane location or during the week in Downtown Stockton.
