Enjoying a day at the beach is the perfect excuse to ride Metrolink.
Head down to San Clemente and you'll have your pick of two stations. If you want some quiet and solitude, exit at the North Station. It is a quiet spot with a wide stretch of beach. If you want to play in the sand and stroll the historic wooden pier, exit at the Pier Station. Either way, it is a great way to dig your toes in the sand.
