- Take CA 94 east, merge onto 94 E
- Exit to the left for CA-125 north
- Take I-8 east
- Take the I-79 north exit towards Julian, turn left to stay on I-79 N

Julian is a very small and cozy town, which is why it makes for the perfect day trip if you’re visiting San Diego. Once you get to Julian, be sure to try the famous Mom’s Pies, pick apples at Julian Pie Company, go boating at Lake Cuyamaca, or go on a wine tour. All of the activities in this town make for a great romantic day date.
November 30 is a great day to plan a visit to Julian because you can shop at their Town Hall Market off Main Street or go to the Shelter Valley Art Fundraiser at the Shelter Valley Community Center. If you still haven’t had enough, head to Museum’s Memorial Park for the Julian County Christmas and Tree Lighting event for carols, Santa and more.
When it comes time to head back to the San Diego city lights, stop at Dudley’s Bakery for some apple pie and grab a bottle of wine at Witch Creek Winery to enjoy back at your Pacific Inn Jacuzzi suite, near San Diego’s Balboa Park.
