Travel Tuesday #1 – My Hometown of San Clemente

I have travelled to a few states in the United States and out of the country to places like Germany, France and Belgium. But by far, my hometown is my favorite place of all. I know everyone usually loves their hometown but I’ve made a list of the reason why I love San Clemente so much. 

  1. I can’t get over how beautiful the sunset at the pier is. It is breathtaking and my go to place to relax and think. 
  2. The different types of scenery all within such a small town. Mountain trails, sand caves, the beach. 
  3. All the city utility boxes are covered in colorful artwork. Makes them a small attraction. 
  4. The military base is close by so we always have military members around town. San Clemente has even adopted a unit within the United States Marine Corps and we have a statue and the flag always waving. 
  5. We have some historic buildings that are breathtaking and the main site to weddings. One main one would be Casa Romantica. 
  6. San Clemente is still a small town and everyone knows everyone here. But we are close to some bigger towns like Mission Viejo and Irvine. 
  7. We are home to the famous Rainbow Sandals. Which means everyone here wears them πŸ˜‹
  8. The weather is amazing. Hottest summer days are in the 80’s and the coldest winter days are low 50’s. So we are lucky to not be too cold or too hot. β˜€οΈ
  9. The whole town is pretty safe. No matter what time of day it is or what part of town I’m in, I feel safe. Many people have lived here for a long time and protect that peacefulness of San Clemente. 
  10. It is my hometown and where I grew up. I can still go to all the places I hung out with my friends growing up and find my name on the wood bench. I run into people I’ve known since elementary school and now we have our own kids growing up together. I will forever love San Clemente – my vacation spot, my sanctuary, my home.
