Road Trip

San Juan Capistrano

Huell spends a day in Orange County for a tour of historic San Juan Capistrano. We begin at the town’s Mission for an up-close look at the largest stone structure west of the Mississippi: The Great Stone Church, as well as the building’s magnificent gardens and gold-leaf altar. Next, it’s off to Los Rios Street, the oldest residential street in California. Los Rios is a place where its people both “live and work,” and every home is on the historic register. Huell enjoys lunch with the Rios family, who have occupied a 1794 adobe house for 10 generations and counting! We take a tour of Zoomar’s Petting Zoo, a family-friendly stop that acknowledges the town’s ranch history, and finally end up at the town’s historical society, the O’Neill Museum.

Described as "the ultimate Sunday drive destination," Huell Howser's latest Road Trip takes him to the rustic town of Julian, in northern San Diego County. Settled as a gold mining town in 1869, Julian did not disappear once the mines were depleted. The residents planted apple orchards, and apples remain the backbone of the local economy. Join Huell as he hears the rich history of the area, and samples Julian's famous apple pies.
