Southern California Mountain Retreat

Julian California is locate in San Diego county in the mountains outside of San Diego.  It's economy is mostly based on tourism and agriculture because it's a perfect summer weekend retreat.  The town is high enough to be much cooler in the summer than most of southern California and high enough that it gets snow in the winter.

The town is full of little shops and lots of restaurants, lodges and hotels to accommodate the summer crowds who have headed to the mountains to cool off.

It's become known for it's pies!  Many Californians drive up for the day and have a slice of pie at one of the many restaurants.  They might even take a pie home with them.

It's a small place but if you are looking for a particular business, you can consult this sign to point you in the right direction.

I would so love to visit such a place. Love places where you can simply relax and explore nature.
