Visit Oceanside (San Diego) and San Juan Capistrano Mission via Train

Event Update:

Tentative Plan: We'll leave Union Station at 8:50 AM

Arrive Oceanside around 11:00 AM - Explore piers and have lunch. 

Leave Oceanside and go to San Juan Capistrano 1:20

Explore Mission and explore town 2:00 - 6:00

Leave San Juan at 6 and arrive at the Union Station 7:50.



Who: 12 Members (Ideally, no plus one)


Where: Union Station

Traxx Restaurant/Bar

800 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA (edit map)


When: Saturday, August 24th (8:30 AM). Please note that train leave 8:50 AM. If you are late, just buy your ticket and come to a platform directly. We will wait only 5 minutes from here and head out to platform.


Cost: $10 for round trip train fare. $9 for Mission entrance (Some of us has a voucher), Lunch money for less than $20.




I like to repeat the train ride to Oceanside to have a lunch and afterward visit Mission San Juan Capistrano. The train pass from Union Station is $10 for a round trip pass.

If you have not been to a Mission or San Diego or have not ridden a train in US, come join me for an adventurous trip. We will walk from the San Juan Capistrano Station to a mission, which is a block or two away. The entrance ticket to Mission is $9.

Game Plan: Meet at Traxx Restaurant at 8:30 Am and buy tickets and rode a Metrolink train.The Metrolink leave from the Union Station 8:50 AM. Know that train wait for no one. Try to be ontime.

    Sorry that I have to cancel at last minute. I was really looking forwards to this trip. But I woke up with a low fever and sore throat. It is better for me to stay home and not get everyone else sick. Sopheak, if no one can use that ticket, please send me a message with your either paypal id or your address, I can pay you back through paypal or a check. Thanks.

    August 23, 2013

    I am planning to take public transportation to the downtown station. I am new to LA from Texas. Can somebody show me how or go with me? I live near Garvey and Garfield area in Monterey Park. Thanks, James

    • Joo Hong K.

      Shirly, I recommend that you meet earlier or have a breakfast at the station. This is huge station and you will need about 20+ minutes just to park, buy your tickets and meet at the meeting location.

    I'm just curious, are you taking AMTRAK? How do you get $10/round trip? The price on their site says $22/one way.

    • £orenzo

      @joo hong - when you've cycled from OC to Oceanside and have a lunch reservations in 40 minutes, a $10 all day pass (even if used only OW to carry you and your bike back) *is* a bargain.

      1 · August 22, 2013

    • Joo Hong K.

      Lorenzo, Agreed. At least, this group will not be as tired as you are.

  • mary

    sorry, I don't know what I did but I was checking the address and suddenly it's gone. Can you please add it. Also, what time are you planning to return?

    August 18, 2013

    • Joo Hong K.

      Are you coming to this trip?

      August 19, 2013

    • mary

      Depending on the time the group is returning but I see that it is already full. Maybe next time.

      Shareen is right. I like to meet new members as well as old members, as long as they are not flaky people. Sopheak, you are welcome to join in this event.

    Sorry to cancel but my work schedule is unpredictable. Maybe another time I can hang out with the group. Have fun all.

    August 20, 2013

  • Joo Hong K.

    Why am I limiting this event to 12 and not more people? I have no problem adding more people in train ride, but my limitation is mainly due to lunch at the restaurant. More people we have, more we need to wait.

    August 19, 2013

  • mary removed the location. It was Traxx Restaurant/Bar

  • Juliaa

    What train line is this and is that $10 round trip or one way? Please advise when you know. I will probably try to get there from wherever I am that day if that is doable - Pasadena or South Bay pending schedule.

    • Joo Hong K.

      Shareen, Really? Last time, it was good for two days. Thanks for info.
