These were the worst burgers I’ve ever had. They’re super greasy & the buns were so stale, they just broke apart making it impossible to eat. After one bite, I was NOT interested in trying to consume it.

If you spend any time in Dana Point, you must visit the harbor. Our favorite thing to do is park as far west as you can and walk through the harbor, rewarding yourself at Lenders ice cream shop.

If you are concerned about crowded marinas and out of control boaters than I would recommend using this location safe for the family. Everyone is very pleasant and welcoming.

Not that I've ever seen but after heavy rains it's there. According to the Orange County Register, it's flowing again. Google it. I can't post html links here.
