The only problem with starting a trip in temperate, attraction packed San Diego is … it's hard to leave. Then again, the same is true of much along this route. Like the apple pie haven of Julian, or the cactus-flanked trails of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, or the shops and sunshine of Palm Springs. This slice of Southern California is made for vacations.
