This is Julien.
A premier mountain getaway, just an hour east of San Diego, in the beautiful Cuyamaca mountains. Take a step back in time to the days of Julian’s beginning rooted in the 1870s gold rush. Get away from the hectic rush of city life and discover the charms of Julian.
The thing that hits you when you are up there are all the dead trees all over the mountain. I asked our nice waitress about it, and she said about 95 % of all vegetation and buildings burned down in the worst fire (2003) they’ve had in centuries. I felt that this place had something special when I first got there, and after listening to her story it made me feel even better about it.
