Re-live the Old West along the South Orange County Coast VISIT THE LOS RIOS DISTRICT
Experience It - A Must See! Visit the oldest neighborhood in California. This quaint neighborhood is separated from the San Juan Capistrano Mission by the beautiful San Juan Station with the original Railroad Cars.
The Los Rios District is an example of life before the turn of the century and has continued to be maintained by the San Juan Capistrano Historical Society and is a fine representation of Days Gone By.....
Each June, Mission San Juan Capistrano has presented an annual Flower & Garden Show.
This popular event is held on the lush ten-acre grounds of historic Mission San Juan Capistrano and extend into the beautiful gardens in the Los Rios District.
Featuring numerous vendors/exhibitors of flowers, plants, and gardening items. Music, live demonstrations, and food round out the day so even non-gardeners will appreciate this event.
Proceeds from the festival support the world-famous "Jewel of the Missions" and the work of the Gardening Angels, a group of volunteers who help to beautify the gardens which enhance this historic site.

Image It! Some of the houses are over 200 years old...constructed during the long period when the original mission, its' outbuildings and the Great Stone Church were being built. It was a time when the Spanish and the Acjachemen Indians were beginning to merge their cultures. The Montanez, the Rios, and the Silvas adobes are all that remain on Los Rios Street of the about 40 adobes that were here at that time.
Wind yourself around the new walkway and view the valley hills and imagine life back in the 1800's with the beautiful vistas...
