Welcome to San Clemente
San Clemente is a “surfers paradise” with the best main street around! It was built in the 1920’s by Ole Hanson, yet the town still retains the old town charm with new additional developments. Downtown San Clemente is anchored by the pier and continues through the Main Street of Avenida Del Mar. Del Mar is home to charming boutiques, great local restaurants and plenty of coffee shops. The downtown business association facilitates some wonderful annual events including Christmas - Puttin’ on the Glitz, Fiesta. The high school has a parade every homecoming down main street. San Clemente has a wonderful small town feel and is located about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego.
