This is a typical harbor you find along the southern California coast, the harbor was busy with boat coming and going, there are beaches nearby and you can walk out along the rock jetty that protects the harbor.

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.
