This Month’s Prize: A Perfect Daycation for Four in San Juan Capistrano

For many reasons, Metrolink travelers rank San Juan Capistrano (SJC) #1 for weekend travel. This beautiful and historic town is packed with activities, food, and entertainment for all ages. Everything is within easy walking distance of the San Juan Capistrano Metrolink Station, a charming Mission Revival structure originally built in 1894 and upgraded extensively over the years. During the summer, a free shuttle is available from the station to points around town.

Now there’s an opportunity to win a perfect day for four in this special place.

This Metrolink Daycations prize package is a true representation of what a Daycation can be – a day away that begins with a relaxing train journey to an exceptional place served by Metrolink. All prizes in the package are supplied courtesy of our Metrolink Partners, a group of retailers and service providers who offer special deals and discounts to Metrolink riders.

The SJC package includes wonderful things from the Mission, Zoomars Petting Zoo, and Trevor’s at the Tracks restaurant.

For the winner of this Daycation, the day might unfold like this:

After a leisurely free ride on a clean, comfortable Metrolink train with family or friends, you arrive at the SJC train station. From there, it’s an easy 10-minute walk to Zoomars Petting Zoo.  Spend an hour or two at Zoomars visiting with goats, llamas, and guinea pigs, panning for gold, and walking through the corn maze. Next, walk to the Mission or take the trolley from the rail station. Once there, stroll the grounds, take a tour, and take advantage of the many programs for children. Your prize includes an annual Mission membership for the whole family, so you can come back again and again. Stop by the Mission gift shop to use your gift card. From there, head back to the station and finish up with a delicious meal at Trevor’s at the Tracks with your $100 gift card. Housed in an historic train depot, Trevor’s is known for its relaxing courtyard patio dining where you can take in the beauty of Old San Juan as you sit near a soothing fountain and enjoy your meal. Then hop back on Metrolink and return home.

Enter to win this sweepstakes today. This is a limited time offer. Next month will feature a different prize in a different Metrolink city.

Remember that you can always take this amazing Daycation on your own. A day-long vacation to internationally renowned cultural spots in San Juan Capistrano or the world-class beaches at San Clemente or Oceanside costs only $10 for unlimited Metrolink travel all day either Saturday or Sunday. Children five and under ride free (3 with each fare-paying adult). Find out more about the Metrolink Weekend Day Pass here.
