Referred to as “the Spanish Village by the Sea,” San Clemente is a peaceful seaside community emphasizing a relaxed and peaceful lifestyle surrounded by a mix of long-established landmarks in the area. Designed in the 1920s highlighting stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, Dana Point Harbor, and the coastal range mountains, here is where you will find some of the best surf beaches in California all wrapped in small town atmosphere.
Well known for its Spanish style architecture, San Clemente was among the first master-planned communities when first developed over 80 years ago. The town’s founder, Ole Hanson, designed an expansive plan that emphasized the Spanish colonial style. Today, as San Clemente continues to grow, Hanson’s vision is still honored to protect the city’s aesthetic feel and ambiance. As an example, the Casa Romantica Cultural Center is Hanson’s original estate and is a popular historic attraction with gardens, beautiful scenery and inexpensive tours. Home styles concentrate on the Mediterranean architecture with the median price tag at just over one million dollars. From luxury beachfront properties, beach cottages, condos, and townhomes, San Clemente offers something for everyone at every stage of their lives.
Ideal for raising a family, San Clemente has an excellent school district, and within easy reach of the city’s many shopping, dining, and recreational amenities. Several parks including the popular Rancho San Clemente, nature trails, especially the pet-friendly 2.3 mile-long Beach Trail which runs along the coast and is popular with bikers, walkers and joggers are just a few of the outdoor activists open to the public. The focal point of this sought after beach city is perhaps the San Clemente Pier where you can dine at famous Fisherman’s restaurant and view the stunning sunsets. Stroll down Avenida Del Mar, San Clemente’s popular downtown district, and visit any of the many boutiques and both upscale and casual dining.
