La Purisima Mission State Historic Park Lompoc California

La Purisima MissionLa Purisima Mission State Historic Park is the best preserved California Mission. Its no wonder that Huell Howser visited this historic destination. Thousands of school children from all over California come to La Purisima to learn about the golden states history. The mission is really amazing as Huell would say. Each building has been restored and are they are full of interesting artfacts and displays. Plan on spending several hours here wandering through the mission and the surrounding grounds. Don't forget to check out the mission animals most are very friendly although the large bull looks rather imitating. Take a drive to Lompoc and see the beautiful mission you won't be disappointed.
