Thunderbird Capistano is a hidden community in Dana Point where homes can have wonderful ocean views.  The community is located just east of Golden Lantern and west of Del Obispo street in Dana Point.  One of the things I really like about this community is how owners really have pride of ownership and take very good care of their homes.  The ocean views are at a distance so don't expect to find 180 degree panoramic views like you would in other parts of the city.  What you will find are quality homes that were built in the mid 1960's and 1970's that often feature 3 car garage with a wide variety of one and two story homes.

Some of the best locations to watch the celebrations in Dana Point is around the Doheny Beach area and the Dana Point Harbor.  Parking is always a premium so you may want to consider parking just south of Doheny near the parking area surrounding Beach Road in Dana Point.  Another great lookout spot is the
