Dana Point Harbor is a must see when in the area. You can enjoy walks along the harbor, mingling with people, and it's dog friendly. And the dogs are friendly! A variety of food and beverage is available, from gourmet ice cream, to sandwich fare, to fine dining.

Wonderful place to walk and nosh different foods. Visit John's Fish Market to pick up very fresh seafood to grill at nearby Doheny Beach Park. Avoid during holidays!
