Lined with beautiful California beaches and located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, the city of San Clemente is one of Orange County’s finest destinations, and offers a myriad of activities.
While you’re taking in the scenic beaches, don’t miss the famous Orange County surf––the Pacific waves here are said to be some of the best on the West Coast, and the Surfing Heritage Foundation’s San Clemente museum provides hotel guests with a unique view into the history of this exciting sport.
Also be sure to stroll down Avenida Del Mar and enjoy the restaurants, cafes and boutiques lining the street. You can find just about anything in these unique shops––even some vegetarian beef jerky at Auntie Dee’s Jerky Store!
For more traditional dining, visit one of the many restaurants near your San Clemente accommodations. The Beach Garden Café has a perfect lunch menu and seashore vistas, while Enne Cucina Italiana features some fantastic Old World cuisine, and Gordon James is a great steakhouse choice with nightly live music offerings.
After a day of California fun, visit Molly Bloom’s Irish Bar for some authentic pub-style nightlife before heading back to your San Clemente hotel’s room.
