Now Available: Affordable, World-Class Daycations by Train

Astute readers will surely note that “affordable” and “world-class” are not usually linked in the same sentence.

That’s part of the beauty of Metrolink Daycations. 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.

Perhaps you’re wondering how much vacationing you can actually do in a day. Fortunately, quite a lot. Check out ideas here for places to visit, fun things to do, and great places to eat. Many offer discounts to Metrolink riders.

Your choice of transportation will profoundly influence your ability to relax and enjoy the day. When you board a Metrolink train, you leave all the traffic and parking hassles behind and simply enjoy the ride.

In addition, every month you’ll have an opportunity to enter to win an amazing prize package for four people. First up is the San Juan Capistrano package featuring Metrolink tickets, a family membership to the Mission for a whole year, a Mission gift card, and a gift card to acclaimed restaurant Trevor’s at the Tracks.
