Historic Gold Mining Town

An hour northeast of Downtown, San Diego lies the quaint town of Julian. Historically a gold mining town, Julian is best known for its unique charm and irresistible apple pies. Each season brings about a picturesque change in scenery—vibrant fall colors make way for snow-covered mountains, bright spring blossoms become summer’s greenery.

During any season, wander down Main Street, taking in the mom ‘n’ pop shops, bakeries, art galleries, antique stores, and restaurants. Julian also boasts a variety of fun, outdoor activities such as hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and boating. At the end of a long day, enjoy some stargazing far away from city lights, and head to a cozy Bed and Breakfast.
