A Road Trip to San Clemente is the Perfect Way to Spend the Day

San Diego tripsTake a trip to the carefree surf town of Orange County. Pack up the car and head north on the I-5… just before L.A., you’ll find the gorgeous surf town of San Clemente. San Clemente is known for its beautiful beaches, breath-taking sandstone cliffs, and laidback small town culture.

San Clemente is called The Spanish Village by the Sea because of its inspiring Mediterranean style and curvy streets lined with white stucco homes and terracotta tile roofs. If you’re looking for the perfect place to spend the day, come to San Clemente, here are just a few places to go when you take a trip to The Spanish Village by the Sea:

San Clemente Pier

The San Clemente Pier stretches out into the ocean 1,300 feet! The long fishing pier offers free fishing and has an indoor/outdoor diner located on it that’s perfect for watching the surfers or the happenings on the beach. Take a stroll down the pier for a great view of San Clemente’s coastline!

Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens

The estate has fantastic views and outstanding garden rooms with unique horticulture twists.

San Clemente State Beach

There’s a beach trifecta going on in San Clemente. If you want to spend the day at the beach, you have three options. San Clemente State Beach is the largest beach of all three offering calm waves for swimmers and bodyboarders. It’s a great beach to take kids or just for lounging around. Calafia is dramatically different than San Clemente State Beach. With steep sandstone cliffs, Calafia marks a great surf spot and sunbathing sanctuary.

Navy Fighter Jet Pilots Fly at the Miramar Air Show

The Marine Corps announced late last week that the annual Miramar Air Show would have a special guest performance this year, the U.S. Navy’s talented Blue Angels. The blue-and-gold flight demonstration squadron consists of a Navy aviator team with the exception of one Marine Corps pilot.

The Blue Angels, formed in 1946, are the oldest flying aerobatic team. Participating in over 70 shows in 34 locations all around the United States, the Blue Angels are notorious for their breath-taking shows. The team will perform in their F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets along with a Marine Corps C-130 Hercules cargo plane also known as “Fat Albert.”

The Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar will host its air show from September 30th to October 2nd in honorable salute to San Diego for being the birthplace of naval aviation and continuing to contribute to naval aviation for the past 100 years.

Other air show performances will be the Air Force F-16 Falcons, the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier jumper jets, and the Army’s Golden Knights parachute team.

San Diego Expects Warship Essex for Repairs and Upgrades

The amphibious warship Essex, also known as “Iron Gator,” will be moving from its station in Japan to San Diego in the very beginning of the new year for a huge maintenance overhaul.

Originally, Essex was expected to arrive at General Dynamics NASSCO in San Diego this year but the date had to be rescheduled.

Essex has been a tremendous strength to the U.S. Navy and has become the most high-profile asset of the Navy in Asia. The Essex was asked to stay in Asia after its scheduled departure during the time of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in April.

The 844 foot Iron Gator will be released from humanitarian relief duties in February and will be coming to San Diego for a dry dock overhaul. The Navy’s Southwest Regional Maintenance Center will be taking a year to plan the Essex’s overhaul and the exact dates of repair. As of right now, the dry dock in San Diego NASSCO will be unavailable until the end of October.

The ship that will be bringing relief to Essex is also a very special Navy ship. The San Diego-based Bonhomme Richard will be performing a hull swap in which the sailors of Essex will continue their deployment in Japan with the Bonhomme Richard and the sailors of Bonhomme Richard will stay stationed in San Diego.
