Dana Point

If you are looking for a great place to visit, look no further.  Wether you are looking for something to do with your family or by yourself, Dana Point has something for everyone.

When you first arrive, there is a small pier.  There were a lot of people fishing and just sitting watching the boats.  It was very relaxing. DSC_0024.JPG To the left is a small area of sand where you can lay out your towels and enjoy the sun and water.

To the right, there is a large building.  It is the Ocean Institute of Dana Point.  This is a wonderful place to learn about the ocean and all the creatures in it.  The original ship that Richard Henry Dana, Jr arrived in is used as a classroom for the Institute.  It can be seen from the Pier.

If you make your way past the Ocean Institute, you’ll come to the jetty.  There is so many things tDSC_0034o do here.  We sat for a while and watched all the paddle boarders and the boats.  You can walk along the jetty, look for small ocean creatures on the rocks.  There is a gated walkway that takes you down to the sand area.  There you can also enjoy the water, walk on the sand, or observe more crustaceans on the rocks.

Visit Dana Point, you won’t be disapointed.
