It was actually back in October when Rachell and I visited Mission San Juan Capistrano. In all actuality, we were down in South Orange County to visit South Coast Farms (who offer an awesome CSA program) for their pumpkin patch extravaganza. The day was sunny, warm and just pleasant.
So, it was by off chance that we stopped off at the old mission. We purchased two tickets for the tour, paid a little extra and received the audio (well worth it, but I forgot the price). The grounds are BEAUTIFULL, no doubt. Fountains, flowers, awnings, patios and the old mission ruins. A sunny day matched the beauty of the grounds.
After the tour, we stopped for lunch at Taqueria El Campeon. Another fantastic stop.
If you have recommendations for things to do, I am all ears. Please share! Thanks.
