Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, the city of San Clemente in South Orange County extends from scenic foothills to miles of stunning California coastline. It’s a harmonious blend of laidback beach living and historic charm and has been aptly nicknamed the “Spanish Village by the Sea.”
The city was established in 1925 by Ole Hanson, a former Mayor of Seattle. Hanson envisioned a city by the sea that evoked Spanish villages along the Mediterranean and to this end San Clemente became one of the first master-planned communities in the area, with homes designed in the classic Spanish Revival style. Today, the surviving homes and the architectural style are still referred to as “Ole Hanson Spanish style.” More than 63,000 residents call San Clemente home, and its near-prefect, Mediterranean weather combined with a relaxing quality of life appeals to just about everyone. Here you’ll find everything from pristine beaches and a variety of surf-related activities to annual festivals and world-class amenities.
