More About San Juan Capistrano Ocean View Real Estate & Ocean View Homes For Sale
The influence of earlier generations is still very readily apparent as you walk through the Mission San Juan Capistrano, the historic Los Rios District, and the downtown area. San Juan Capistrano is recognized world-wide for the annual migration of cliff swallows that migrate each year to Mission San Juan Capistrano from South America. San Juan Capistrano is the site of California's oldest residential neighborhood, known as Los Rios. In fact, the Los Rios neighborhood is the home of the oldest building still in use in the State of California-the Serra Chapel in the Mission. In addition to the historic buildings, this area was the site of both the first vineyard and the first winery in California. The main city of San Juan Capistrano is located at the site of the old Catholic mission for which it is named, Mission San Juan Capistrano. At the time of the mission's founding in 1776, it was named in honor of the Franciscan Saint Giovanni da Capistrano (1386-1456).
The migration of the cliff swallows is an annually celebrated event in San Juan Capistrano. The birds are said to return from their South American migration on (or about) Saint Joseph's Day on March 19th. This local holiday is celebrated with the Swallows' Day Parade and other community events. The swallows are then traditionally anticipated to leave on (or about) October 23rd, which is when the locals celebrate the former feast day for Saint John of Capistrano. Properties here with ocean views can enjoy the tradition of this wonderful annual event.
Aside from the fantastic Pacific Ocean views and close beach access, one of the best attributes of San Juan Capistrano real estate is the distinct sense of community that makes it a wonderful place to live and work.

There are several recreational hiking trails in the area of San Juan Capistrano that are situated within the broad and beautiful spaces, along the gurgling creeks, and enjoying the hillsides that present the magnificent Pacific Ocean to view.
The parks that are most often used by residents are Descanso Veterans Park and Cook Park/La Novia.

The most common users of the fields are the San Juan Adult and Youth soccer leagues, AYSO Soccer, Capistrano Girls Softball, and San Juan Little League.
