How This Small Southern California Town Quietly Became The Coolest Place In The West
The quaint town of San Juan Capistrano lies halfway between south of Los Angeles and north of San Diego, precisely an hour from either city. It’s not the geographical setting that makes it the coolest town in Southern California, but its rich history dating to the founding of its mission in 1776 by Father Junípero Serra.
