About an hour east of San Diego, at about 4,200 feet in the beautiful Cuyamaca Mountains, is the quaint village of Julian. If you haven’t made a trip this way, now is the time. Julian is a historic gold mining town with the ability to transport you back to the 1870s. Get away from the coast and head to the mountains for a day of apple picking and, of course, apple pie eating. Now through the end of October (or whenever the apples are gone), Julian celebrates the annual fall harvest.

For the full Julian experience, visit during the Julian Apple Days Festival October 4h and 5h. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children under age 12.
