The historic town of Julian is tucked away in the pine-covered mountains of San Diego County approximately 60 miles northeast of the City of San Diego. The elevation of the town site is 4200 feet with some of the surrounding mountain peaks at almost 6000 feet. Gold discoveries in 1869 caused the area to boom. Many of the miners were captivated by Julian's climate and beauty and they remained after the gold rush ended to become ranchers and fruit growers.
Today Julian still celebrates the apple harvest with a fall festival which is reminiscent of the "good old days." The countryside around Julian is beautiful and varied from rolling hills and mountain peaks to meadows. The breathtaking views are forever changing from the colors of autumn to snow-capped mountain scenes, to the freshness of the daffodils and lilacs in spring. Julian has four mild seasons and a relaxed and safe small town way of life. Once you experience the Julian lifestyle, you'll never look back!
