One of the most evocative of Southern California’s missions, La Purisíma Mission State Historic Park was completely restored in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Today its buildings are furnished just as they were during Spanish colonial times. The mission's fields still support livestock, while outdoor gardens are planted with medicinal plants and trees once used by Chumash tribespeople. Surrounding the mission are miles of peaceful hiking trails. One-hour guided tours begin at 1pm daily.

The mission is just outside Lompoc, about 16 miles west of Hwy 101 (take Hwy 146 west from Buellton).
