There aren?t many ways to relive the California gold rush outside of a time machine. Yet Julian Mining Company recreates that time with its own gemstone and gold mining. Visitors pan for real gold from bags of ore at the site or take a bag home to hunt for gemstones in their bathroom sink. Field trips teach students about the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, farm life, and Native Americans with hands-on lessons. Additionally, cabin rentals give people a chance to escape to the great outdoors in view of the mountains, and in the summer and fall, families can pick fresh, tart raspberries from the bush or pumpkins off the vine.
