  • If you like California history and Spanish Mission architecture, this is a great place to see. They host lots of events, but we were there (Feb 2019) just sightseeing. Easy parking.  more »

  • Really cool hidden spot. They have a lot of history about the town (spoiler alert: this was the home of the guy who started the town). Spend the time to walk around outside and read all the signs. Like the one that talks about how much surf boards weighed back then..... Crazy!!
  • I have been involved with the Casa Romantica, its property and events for over a decade. The staff and leadership are part of a non-profit that directs the programming and maintains the property: they strive to offer cultural experiences that rival institutions in much larger cities in quality and kind, where one can experience the visual arts, dance, music, historical lectures, even yoga classes! Definitely worth your time and a visit!
