A Day Trip to Julian
An hour east of San Diego in the Cayamaca Mountains lies the quaint little town of Julian. A historic gold mining town, Julian never really took off, but the towns people stayed to eek out a living and now it is popular with day trippers and people seeking a bit of solace in the clean air.
We spent a delightful summer afternoon up there in July with my sister in law and niece. The sleepy town is full of antique stores and treat shops and can I just say, we sampled about 5 different treats in one afternoon and took home a few pies to boot. It was awesome! Stop by the restored town jail from 1920 and the Gold Mine Museum for a bit of history or just enjoy eating your way down Main Street.
