The beautiful city of Dana Point is known for its beaches, and that’s why it draws people together who share a love for the water--and the great outdoors. Dana Point Harbor is the perfect gathering place to play and relax outside.
When it comes time to shop, multiple stores are just around the corner and easily reached on foot but, for those who would rather enjoy a short ride, public transportation makes getting around easy and is a great way to escape the heat.
Dana Point has that quaint, safe, small town feel where people really kick back, slow down, and get to know one another. You’re likely to brush shoulders with plenty of newfound friends while enjoying the many great restaurants.
The top eateries include Jimmy's Famous American Tavern, Waterman's, Harbor Grill, Turk's, Harpoon Henry's, and Wind n Sea. There’s a long list of interesting places to see and visit, but no list would be complete without mentioning Strand Beach or Doheny Beach.
Shopping includes all the standard outlets, like Ralphs, Trader Joe's, Bed Bath and Beyond and Pier 1. For students, Saddleback College is right nearby and both the Dana Point Trolley and Bus Transportation make getting to and from anywhere fast and simple.
