I love Southern California and in particular I love all the small beach towns on the way to San Diego from Los Angeles. They have clean beaches and the water is much warmer than Los Angeles and Ventura beaches. San Juan Capistrano is one of these small beach towns along the Southern California coast. It is small but clean and quiet. Wonderful weather and proximity to the Pacific Ocean make San Juan Capistrano a truly delightful beach town. In addition to the clean beaches, San Juan Capistrano boasts one of the twenty seven old California Missions.
