If you're craving a bit of spiritual enlightenment on your vacation, Mission San Luis Rey Church is the place for you.
Oceanside, where it is, sits 440 miles (708 kilometers) from the capital of the state, Sacramento.
If you're hoping for a quick commute from your hotel, it would be a good idea to make a reservation at one of the 2 nearby options ahead of time. The Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego Oceanside and Courtyard San Diego Oceanside are within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Mission San Luis Rey Church.
If you would like to pocket a bit of money for some of the finer things in life, you might like to stay at one of the budget-friendly solutions within easy driving distance. Some choices are the Harbor Inn & Suites and the Vista Inn Motel.
If you want to be close to all the action, and stay in a top-notch hotel, head to the Beachwalk Villas, only 5 miles (8 kilometers) away.
With all the excitement of traveling to new places, it can be all too easy to neglect eating. Just a short hop away, Play Kingdom is the ideal place to refuel for the afternoon. However, if your stomach's starting to growl, you can go to San Luis Rey Bakery Restaurant, also nearby. When darkness falls, you can walk down the road to Fratelli's Italian Kitchen for a drink or two.
