The fall season is one of the best times of year for the residents of San Diego. There are few people that plan a trip to San Diego during the fall months, since it is not beach season. The weather is still wonderful and it can be fun to stop by the beach when there are few tourists visiting. Fall days and nights are much calmer without the tourists, so many residents celebrate while they can.

Julian is a small town that originated when mining gold was big. It is a great area to bring the family for a day of fall activities like apple picking. The trees are lovely reds, oranges, and yellows. It is relaxing to walk through the apple orchard and pick apples along the way.

When all the apple picking is done, stop by a few of the stores in Julian. There are gift shops, pie shops, and diners. No trip to Julian in the fall is complete without grabbing an apple pie. If apple is not a favorite try out one of the fresh pumpkin pies. For a day out with the family, Julian provides that small town charm.

San Diego loves to celebrate fall. Always look for the current festivals that are happening.

Enjoy the cooler weather and take a walk around the festival. There are always new ways to celebrate fall and there are sure to be wonderful fall snacks to choose from. Look for favorites made from fresh apples and pumpkins. Take some home to enjoy throughout the season.

Plan a visit to a local park to enjoy the cool weather that fall brings. The temperatures are still high enough that it will not be too chilly, but it is not an overbearing heat either. There are fewer people around and many parks and shopping destinations will be less crowded. Fall is the best time of year to get in some family activities without the typical hustle and bustle of tourism getting in the way.
