Huell spends a day in Orange County for a tour of historic San Juan Capistrano. We begin at the town’s Mission for an up-close look at the largest stone structure west of the Mississippi: The Great Stone Church, as well as the building’s magnificent gardens and gold-leaf altar. Next, it’s off to Los Rios Street, the oldest residential street in California. Los Rios is a place where its people both “live and work,” and every home is on the historic register. Huell enjoys lunch with the Rios family, who have occupied a 1794 adobe house for 10 generations and counting! We take a tour of Zoomar’s Petting Zoo, a family-friendly stop that acknowledges the town’s ranch history, and finally end up at the town’s historical society, the O’Neill Museum.
