"Nice Place to Live"
Score 4.0 / 5

So close to the beach and quiet at night so we slept soundly. Not a lot of traffic to hinder our movements from place to place.

"Good times in San Clemente "
Score 5.0 / 5

San Clemente is a fun place to visit! Not only is it on the ocean with beaches and piers, but there are many fun shops, bars, and restaurants in the downtown area and golf close by. It is small enough to be easy to get around in, but large enough to offer many fun options.
