About Julian, California

Julian is a small town in San Diego county. It's a quaint mountain retreat, hidden amongst the pine-oak woodland.

It's hard to spot, but once you get there you'll never want to leave—and not just because of its famous apple pie!

With breathtaking views and plenty of activities for you to try out, Julian is the perfect place for a family vacation. Whatever you fancy doing, Julian can provide.

One thing—watch out for the weather. It changes quite a lot. It's been known to get over 100 F in the summer, and down to a chilly 30 F in the winter. So, pack your bags wisely!

What to do

For a more unusual day-trip, go to the California Wolf Center. It's dedicated to the conservation of wolves, as well as to researching their behaviors and educating the public about their habits.

Their aim is to eventually reintroduce wolves to this part of California. Don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds! 

You'll see when you visit that the packs of grey wolves at the sanctuary aren't vicious, just territorial. It's a great chance to learn about wolf behavior and discover something new.

If you're up for an outdoor adventure with a touch of history, head up to Eagle and High Peak Mine. Take a tour and learn about the area's mining history, as well as the geology that made it such a desirable place.

To find out more about the history of the area, head to Julian Pioneer Museum—it's a great day out!

If you're really adventurous, you could hike up one of the many trails. Head to Cedar Creek Falls—remember your camera as the view is spectacular!

After a long day, head to the Volcan Mountain Winery—it's a great place to unwind and try some local produce.
