Rustic beautiful

She is an old charmer of Orange county, enough to get to know just in a day! With a gorgeous center, locals and outsiders have come to her for exquisite getaways.

Mark this O.C. city for one to visit!

A lovely panoramic shot!

This town of Orange county is on local "must-see maps" for its historic mission in the downtown area. There is a yearly celebration here that marks the arrival of swallows to the mission. More info on this point is to come and oh, so much more to add here!

    I can't believe people are actually using trains in SoCal! That's great. Love the pics and info.
