Dana Point

Here is the story about Dana. She is a quiet, little sandy one, similarly sandy and quiet like her neighbor, San Clemente, but even more so. Dana is quite young, almost like a brand new baby compared to other cities of southern California. She was born only in 1989!

Here are some traits of the city:

---she is a bit unassuming in that she does not draw much attention to itself in general. Yet, she does still realize that many are attracted to her because of her stretches of beautiful coastline and luxurious accommodations at the highly regarded Ritz-Carlton hotel where she entertains many fortunate guests throughout the year.

---she soothes well in that she offers many lovely spas.

On Dana, there is more to tell but...

oh, I need to gather more thoughts and make more trips!

Friendly Place

Dana is SUPER FRIENDLY. About EVERYTIME I go to Dana, people on the street say "hello". Though quite well-to-do, local folk don't come off as snobbish here. People are just happy and welcoming, open to sharing their piece of California paradise.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:is very quiet and peaceful, conveniently located between L.A. and San Diego, has lovely looking coasts, offers luxury (of salons,hotels,etc)
  • Cons:can have poor water conditions at beach
  • In a nutshell:See a beautiful and lesser known beach town of California
