Santa Ynez Outdoors
Nestled in the countryside surrounding Los Alamos is one of the region's most prestigious and historic landmarks, Misión La Purísima Concepción. Set amid the hills between Los Alamos and Lompoc, La Purisima Mission is surrounded by the beautiful natural environment provided by the California State Parks. Considered one of the best and most authentically preserved missions of California's twenty-one Franciscan missions, it was originally founded December 8, 1787, and provides the perfect destination for visitors to this part of the valley. It's an impressive historical destination whether you plan to explore the mission grounds as part of a day trip, or you want to stop there as a midway point during a long bike ride or scenic drive through the valley.
