We stopped for lunch in Dana Point. It's a pretty and welcoming little coastal town. I'm not sure where we ate but we had a view of the breakwater and people on sailboats. VERY yummy lunch.

We visited this wonderful harbor attraction. We walked through the shops and were well satisfied as to the offerings. The harbor with the boats was a wonderful sight. So many boats to see and the names on them were a delight. We dined at El Torito restaurant there.

The area is just gorgeous , the beach the park the ocean view and swimming in the cold pacific water is refreshing , even in the month of August expect the Pacific Ocean water temperature are cold. Look at the yachts and go for a day's swim and take a sun bath is all you should do at Dana Point!... More

A great place for us to hang out for an afternoon between a wedding and the reception. We walked around and enjoyed the shops and restaurants. A nice place for a quiet walk.

A true gem! This sleepy beach town harbor has it all. Baby Beach for the little ones, it also has great kayaking and sailing as well as whale watching tours and deep sea fishing. The Ocean Institute has a wonderful display of sea life with educational exhibits. There are great hotels here too! From the Doubletree to the St. Regis... More

Enjoyed several restaurants here. We went to Proud Mary's for breakfast several times. Great food, service and view. Also went to an evening dinner next to this restaurant. Also very good food service and views.
