Julian is a census-designated place in Southern California, situated in the Cuyamaca Mountains about 60 miles to the northeast of San Diego. Although settlers were first attracted to Julian by flecks of gold found during the gold rush, they stayed for the cooler mountain air and rich soil. Julian is known for its seasonal weather, but it's also famous for its apple trees— don't miss a slice of the famous local apple pie during your stay at one of the hotels in Julian, CA.
Flying to San Diego International Airport (SAN)? You can reach Julian via public transportation, but you're probably better off renting a car at the airport and driving. The scenery will also be ideal for many photo ops. If you do choose the public transportation route, you'll need to take bus 992 to connect with the trolley's Orange Line. Switch to bus 891 at El Cajon Transit Center, which will take you straight into Julian, but expect to be on the bus for nearly two hours; you can rent a car in Julian once you arrive. Take a hike in the woodlands of Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, or check out the Julian Pioneer Museum. Before heading back to one of the Julian, CA hotels, be sure to stop at a restaurant or two on Main Street for that slice of apple pie we mentioned!
