Take a step back in time in Julian, California. This mountain town, located in the Cuyamaca mountains, was founded during the 1870’s gold rush. Check out the historic buildings in Julian, take a ride down Main Street in a horse-drawn carriage, grab a slice of their famous apple pie, explore the tunnels of a real gold mine and sample the local beer and wine.
Drive into downtown San Diego and discover the city. Spend a day exploring the museums in Balboa Park, check out a game at PETCO Park, visit the Cabrillo National Monument or take a step back in time at the USS Midway Museum. For dinner, grab a bite in the trendy Gaslamp Quarter. There’s no shortage of activities in the city.
