California Travel Tips

Amtrak and California Summer

Published on: May 10, 2019


San Clemente, Calif. has lots of vacation rentals, and they also have an Amtrak train stop. Actually, they have two. In Orange County, San Clemente and the City of Anaheim are the only two cities that have two train stations. But only San Clement offers one at the beach — at the Pier Bowl, as it is affectionately referred to. The Pier Bowl’s Ole Hanson sidewalks, iconic wooden pier, and palm tree lined streets are a welcoming site to visitors and residents alike.

San Clemente FREE Events

In the summer guests enjoy free concerts at the beach June-August.

Free 4th of July Fireworks show next to San Clemente Pier.

San Clemente Ocean Festival in mid-July is free to see.

Other summer activities include summer trolley service, a car show and Paint San Clemente plein air competition in June, and an Arts & Crafts Festival in August. Anytime activities to enjoy are the daily sunsets over the Pacific Ocean — they’re awesome!
