This chapter describes a tour to San Juan Capistrano which takes the following route: Los Angeles–Belvedere–Montebello–Whittier–Fullerton–Anaheim–Santa Ana–Tustin–Irvine–Capistrano–Doheny Park; 65 m.; US 101. For more than 60 miles US 101 roughly parallels the course of El Camino Real (the royal road) connecting the Spanish missions and military posts in California. Cutting southeastward through the industrial district, the route bisects five oil fields, traverses the heart of a Valencia orange belt, and passes the ruins of one of the most impressive old missions–San Juan Capistrano.
