Julian is located in the beautiful Cuyamaca mountains. Take a step back in time to the days of Julian’s beginning rooted in the 1870’s gold rush. Get away from the hectic rush of city life… discover the charms of Julian.See where gold was discovered—shop stores housed in historic buildings dating back to the 1870’s—sleep in a romantic B&B or historic hotel—sample Julian’s famous apple pie —hike and picnic amid oaks and pines—ride down Main Street in a horse-drawn carriage.

Fresh air and beautiful scenery abound in our area. Hiking trails, Parks and old-fashioned buildings.  Enjoy a History Hunt through town, or simply enjoy a self-guided History Walk.

Julian also features a number of events throughout the year.  There is always a reason and a season to visit Julian.  We truly do enjoy all four seasons in our mountain town. Enjoy!

The Looking Glass
2013, Julian CA
One of the things I love most about my hometown of San Diego is the vast range of scenery available to the visitor and resident alike. Thus it is not unusual to hike a mountain and play in the snow (Julian, pictured here), hang out in the desert (Borrego Springs), catch some culture (Balboa Park), and go surfing (any beach), all in the same day.
