not much other than great beaches. San Clemente has a real nice restaurant area on Avenida Del Mar, also the pier area is fun, but they are a little far to walk.

Yes, across I-5 are restaurants(mostly fast food), gas stations,bars, a bike shop, liquor stores...

You could walk down to the surf spot Trestles along the beach, past the old Nixon estate. Or walk to the pier for the Fishermans restaurant on the pier. Just depends on how far you want to walk. The beach trail is right there.

If you mean San Clemente State Beach Park off Califia I am going to say there is not a lot that is easily walkable from there.

It is about a mile and a half barefoot beach walk (and a nice beach to walk along) to get from State Beach to the pier which has a nice restaurant /Oyster bar (Fisherman's), an ice cream shop, a creperia/coffee bar, and a great breakfast/lunch cafe (beachgarden cafe). There is also a beautiful crushed granite beach trail along the entire way that is great for running/walking, if you prefer to keep sand out of your shoes.
