San Juan Capistrano Travel Guide: 157 reviews and 482 photos

San Juan Capistrano is located in South Orange Co. This is a very special town ,rich in history and beauty. Set in a valley a couple miles inland from the Pacific Ocean at Dana Point It is surrounded by green hills dotted with custom mansions set on large lots and in some places acres. It has areas that are totally upper class and yet still has lay back feel. With 60% of the town designated open space , numerous parks,miles of equestrian trails and undeveloped ridge lines it is one or the most desirable places to live in Southern California.

    Hi Nancy! Thank you SO much for my time in Dana Point and the OC - it was wonderful (all because of you)! I'm looking forward to building my own SJC page - not nearly as good as yours. Gillybob greetings

    I love this page! Your affection for this place shines through & personalises it so well. What a great scheme to protect the hills from development. And the Ramos House sounds excellent - love that Bloody Mary!

    Me again, just coming back to read all the new tips and updates that you have added since my last visit to this page two and a half years ago. As a child in Illinois I learned about Johnny Appleseed, but not Padre Mustard Seed.
