Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleep away camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. 

We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family, let’s not forget the amazing fireworks we have the privilege of viewing from all three of our amazing coastal communities,  and, if we’re lucky, take an amazing vacation.  In this issue of ​Ocean To Ranch Lifestyle​, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. When’s the last time you played tourist in your hometown? We invite you to get out and experience all the unique and amazing venues in our town’s ​and let us know if you find something really special…we would love to write about it!

This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local community theater and music scene at various venues like Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano, Cabrillo Playhouse in San Clemente or the classic Coach House.  The lineups at these venues are perfect for a summer date night or family outing. And don’t miss the delectable sips and bites at ​Luciana’s Restaurant in Dana Point.   

With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what our cities have to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start.

Happy exploring…. We hope to see you around!
