Southern California Family Field Trips for May

Family field trip opportunities are abundant in the month of May throughout Southern California. The list of adventures that are waiting for you and your family include blue berry picking, discovery of over a million bug species and even an Italian festival. 

Blueberry picking at Temecula Berry Company farm is now open. They are open from 8 AM until 6 PM.  Enjoy the sunshine and beautiful rows of blueberry bushes while capturing some incredible family photos.  The freshly picked berries will be a family favorite.  Visit their website at: http://www.temeculaberryco.com/
Temecula Berry Company is located at 39700 Cantrell Road Temecula, CA 92591
temecula farm
The Temecula Berry Company is a pick-your own blueberries farm. Walk up to the little red barn and get a cute bucket for picking. Make sure to apply sunscreen and bring water because it gets super-hot out in the field. Once you pick your desired amount of blueberries, bring your basket back to the pay station. Only wash the ones you are going to eat as the washing speeds up the aging process and your berries will spoil faster. The farm only takes cash and they do not allow eating while in the fields. The experience will leave your family with a full belly of yummy blueberries. It is a great road trip adventure for our family.  Prices are subject to change, please check the website frequently for more information.
