  • We drove south and saw several California Missions. This is a little smaller than some of the others and is very well maintained. The inside is fancier than some of the others and is still an active church. The historical displays help explain the importance of the Missions to the history and development of California. This is a peaceful place to visit and also enjoy the gardens.
