    Artists' Loft Bed and Breakfast - Big Cat Cabin, Strawberry Hill Cabin, Julian, California

    Great place to stay in Julian. Not really a hotel, you have your own cabin and the ingredients to make your own breakfast. Ideal if you like privacy.

  • 2. San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park
    San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Escondido, California

    Lions and Tigers and Koala Bears, oh my!

  • 3. Wynola Pizza Express

    Extensive menu of wood fired pizzas, salads, soups and more. You can even get a slice of Julian apple pie. Ask about the housemade soups. The tomato-ginger was outstanding.

  • 4. Soups & Such Cafe

    Tiny restaurant serving yummy soups. Try the soup, salad and sandwich combination after a morning of browsing the town shops. The salmon chowder was excellent.

    Julian, California

    Julian is an historic gold mining town located approximately an hour or so east of San Diego. At about 4000 feet, the weather depends on the season. The town itself is very small and touristy, but it does feature nice shops and restaurants. In October there is an apple festival, which makes the town overcrowded. Try the off-season for a more relaxed visit. Famous apple pie served in a variety of bakeries and restaurants.
