    A great day trip anytime of season, its about 50 min scenic drive, Julian is famous for apple pie, mountain atmosphere and the town is rustic, artsy and friendly. Don't miss Dudley s bakery on you way down the hill!

    Julian's annual Apple Days Festival is the opening ceremony for the fall season, when the apple orchards are bursting and the leaves are changing. You can pack as much as your heart desires into a bag at the orchards, sample wines at the local wineries (Menghini Winery hosts the festival), join apple-bobbing contests, browse craft stalls, and order a traditional ear of roasted corn to munch on. The only things I don't like are the $5 fee to just get inside the gate - which only lets you in to the craft stalls and food vendors, where you have to buy anything anyway! - and the lack of inclusions for that fee. Plus there were no pumpkin patches or hay rides, like I had heard were advertised. My other major complains is the poor parking setup. The event attracts thousands of people from all over San Diego each year, so you'd think they would have fixed the pedestrian/hiking for miles/congested parking situation by now. But other than those shortcomings, the festival is fun for people who like to browse crafts and pick apples, and the region is so pretty in the fall.
