Jamul has been a well-kept secret in Southern California for a number of years. No longer as the Jewel in the Hills is heaven on earth for the venturous soul. Remote but yet close, only 30 minutes to San Diego Airport and downtown San Diego and 35 minutes to the beach. Even has its own Casino, the Jamul Casino. Horse country and a bird watchers paradise with hiking trails and wineries to add to the festivities.
