Trip to the San Gabriel Mission

Its Good Friday and the kids were on their Spring break. It's a rainny day and not too much to do. We thought it would be a great idea to go to one of the missions. Originally the plan was to go to Solvang and Buelton but the weather was so bad that we decided to stay more local. The San Gabriel Mission is probably the closest to LA so we decided to go there. It's located about 12 miles from downtown and fairly easy to get to. It was much bigger than i thought it would be.
These tiles are located up and down the streets here in San Gabriel.

Mission District

In this area you can find the Mission and City Hall. You can also see quite a few restaurants and little shops. Thers's also the new church and a cemetary.
