Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens


Hey Adventurers! We recently got the pleasure of visiting Casa Romantica Cultural Center in San Clemente! Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens is an award winning historical landmark and venue that is found right on the coast of San Clemente. With over 100 events year round, there’s plenty to do every time you visit! 

We visited for their D. Yoder Family Sunday! D. Yoder Family Sunday at Casa Romantica is a free monthly event that is held on the first weekend of every month. Each month is a different theme.  We walked through the Casa, watched the live movie screening, enjoyed their free story time, created crafts and heard all about the butterflies that they keep in the butterfly gardens. We also walked through the museum where they have artifacts about the Casa.
