Julian Neighborhood Guide

Julian is a small town (population 1,502) in the Cuyamaca mountains, about 4,235 feet above sea level. The entire town is a Designated Historical district depicting a frontier mining town from the late 1800s. It was first settled during the California gold rush, and, once the gold mines were all played out, survived because the soil and climate make it a perfect place to grow apples. The climate here has four seasons instead of SoCal’s long year-round summer. Julian has cool spring and fall weather, hot summers, and occasional snow in the winter.

Nowadays the town gets plenty of tourists interested in this taste of the Old West, as well as the taste of Julian’s famous apple pies. During the October Apple Pie festival residents bake about 10,000 pies for the tourists that descend upon the town. You can buy lots of Julian apple products throughout the rest of the year as well.

Freeway access is through State Routes 78 and 79.
