I'm going to be in San Clemente next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!
Mission San Juan Capistrano is pretty cool, lots of history there and not expensive. Walk the beach trail starting at North Beach- free. Go to Riviera Beach or Calafia Beach Cafe. Go down to the pier and walk the pier. The downtown are is fun especially Del Mar Street- lots of boutiques and cafes. Banzai Bowls is my favorite place to eat- acai bowls. and Bagel Shack for breakfast!
