    The State Park was a great place. We love visiting historical places and this park was just big enough to spend an hour or more walking around and enjoying the history of this town.

    Beautiful spot just minutes off the 101 freeway. Well worth the stop if you have a few moments. The gardens of the mission are nice and the town square buildings are very interesting.
