Mission San Juan Capistrano

Called the "Jewel of the Missions" Mission San Juan Capistrano is probably the best known of all the California missions.In 1796 work was begun on a large stone church that was to be the most magnificent of all the California mission churches. Under the guidance of an expert stonemason from Mexico the natives transported the stones from a quarry six miles away. Nine years later the church was completed. The Great Stone church was built in the shape of a cross, 180 feet long and 40 feet wide. Above the front entrance is a 120 foot tall bell tower that could be seen for miles.

San Clemente Beach

San Clemente is located in Southern Orange County. What was once a sleepy beach town populated by surfers and marines from Camp Pendleton has turned into and upscale beach destination. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore and an excellent beach perfect for strolling or watching the surfers ride the waves. Train tracks run right next to the beach and are serviced by both Amtrak and Metrolink. The city still retains it's small town charm and it is the perfect place to spend a day in Southern California.
