Although our East County residents share the beauty of rural country that stretches across forested mountains to breathtakingly beautiful desert terrain, each of our communities has its own personality. There is no confusing the foothill charms of thriving Alpine or scenic Pine
Valley with the yesteryear lure of Campo, for instance.
Each community reflects the
style of country living that its
residents favor, blending the
conveniences of the 21st century with the appeal of timeless history.
An historic gold mining town located approximately an
hour east of San Diego. It is the
premier mountain retreat in the
county and is unique in that it has four seasons. Spring brings the blossoming of many flowers
including daffodils, summer is
perfect for hiking and star gazing, fall is famous for our apples and fall colors, and winter brings snowfalls and bright, crisp, "Christmassy"
days. Although famous for apples and our superb apple pie one can enjoy all year round, Julian has become the center for visitors who wish to stay in the mountains but take day trips to the nearby casinos,
the Anza Borrego Desert
State Park and the coast.
