Hello, friends! I am out of town this week, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share my mini day trip to the San Juan Capistrano Mission last week. My mom, my brother’s girlfriend, Jessica, and myself decided to spend the day in south Orange County. First, we hit up the Carlsbad outlet mall, grabbed some lunch and did a little shopping. Next, we headed back up to San Juan Capistrano to visit the historic mission, the highlight of our staycation.
As I am sure every California-native knows, the California Missions are a huge part of our state history, and the San Juan Capistrano Mission is no exception. Beautiful flowers fill up the gardens while Monarch butterflies flutter on ocean breezes amid the remains of the massive stone and timber buildings. Full of rich and interesting history and a beautiful place to visit, I highly recommend it to anyone in the area or anyone passing through!
I hope you enjoyed my trip to the mission as much as I did, and, as always, thanks for reading! Love, Kristi :)
