Food scene
(Lunch/Dinner) - Awesome Italian for a very reasonable price. It's just a few blocks down the road on El Camino Real. It's very small dining room so most order take out. They have two locations, the South location is closer.

(Lunch/Dinner) - A mile south of the house on El Camino. Perhaps the most overrated tacos in the world but for some reason everyone from out of town LOVES them. Lots of people like the bean cheese and potato burrito. Put it down because it's a staple in San Clemente.

About a 10 minute drive south before Camp Pendleton. This is the California dream beach you see in all the old movies. You drive your car right up on the sand (basically). Probably my favorite beach-chill scene in the world. Great for some surf and then having a bonfire on the beach and roasting marshmallows. It costs $15 to get in and can get super crowded in the summer. You may have a line of cars waiting to get in.

If you are a surfer you came here for Trestles, Cottons or Churches. If you do not surf, but want to see some of the best waves and surfers in the world battling on crowded peaks, go explore. You have to park in the parking lot near the Carls Jr off the Cristianitos exit (one exit South). It's about a 15 minute walk from the lot.

If you want to get a little more aggressive head down south to Torrey Pines state reserve (30-45 minute drive) in San Diego. Absolutely gorgeous views and family friendly hikes. You can also go further south to La Jolla and walk along the gorgeous coastline and watch the sea lions. A great idea to do with kids.
