Visiting the Rancho is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. It is quiet and uncrowded, but parking is limited. Stop by and spend some time.

If you want to visit a little slice of what life was like during the Spanish/Mexican period in California history, this is a must see. The Rancho and the homestead grounds have been preserved.
