  • Gorgeous place to visit near the San Clemente pier and metro link depot. Loved the stunning gardens, especially the butterfly garden. The staff here is very friendly and interactive. Be sure to check out the art gallery on the way out.
  • Beautiful way to spend an hour. Super interesting historical information posted around the house and there's an audio tour as well. Gardens with panoramic ocean views of San Clemente /Dana point. Gist shop with snacks. $5 per adult.
