Eastern Slope of Volcan Mountain
Julian is an historic gold
mining town located approximately an hour or east of San Diego. It
is the premier mountain retreat in the county and is unique in
that it has four seasons. Spring brings the blossoming of many
flowers including daffodils, summer is perfect for hiking and star
gazing, fall is famous for our apples and fall colors, and winter
brings snowfalls and bright, crisp, "Christmassy" days.
Although famous for apples
and our superb apple pie one can enjoy all year round, Julian has
become the center for visitors who wish to stay in the mountains
but take day trips to the nearby casinos, the Anza Borrego Desert
State Park and the coast. It has always been the B&B capital
of Southern California, known for it's romantic atmosphere, but is
now fast becoming a great destination for families, hikers,
weddings and corporate retreats.
Specialty shops line our
streets, our attractions are unique, ranging from wineries to
wolves. From the old time melodrama to the Grape Stomp Festa,
Julian events are great for couples, families and groups.
