Living in San Clemente has plenty of perks. You’re in a beachside community with a storied history. Surfers have flocked to the area for years. In fact, in addition to surfing the local breaks, many stayed to make San Clemente the surfing media capital of the world. Former President Richard Nixon lived in a house he dubbed “La Casa Pacifica” although the press referred to it as the “Western White House.” And the town’s oldest architecture dates back more than a century.
But San Clemente doesn’t live in the past. In fact, the “Spanish Village by the Sea” is a vibrant community that offers a rich social scene, plenty of dining opportunities and great shopping. Here are just some of the things you can enjoy in August.
Now in its 63rd year, the Fiesta Music Festival brings together plenty of music lovers who enjoy the sounds of a wide range of music. There’s also a salsa challenge, plenty of games and contests to compete in, an art and crafts exhibit and more.
