One of our favorite Thanksgiving weekend traditions, beside checking out Black Friday deals, is going on a drive to the mountains for fresh baked warm apple pie. In Southern California, we are lucky to have beautiful Julian located in San Diego's backcountry. Once a busy gold mining town, this charming mountain treasure offers many outdoor recreational activities including horseback riding and llama pack trips! If a joy ride is what you had in mind, breeze past tree-lined, uncluttered roads before stopping off at the infamous Julian Pie Company on Main Street. Then, pick up souvenirs of delicious homemade jams to remember the fun day!
