The city of Dana Point is located in Orange County, California and has about 35,000 people populating an area of roughly 30 square miles. The town is the namesake of the Dana Point Headlands, a nearby promontory which juts out into the ocean, while the headlands were named for Richard Henry Dana Jr., the author of Two Years Before the Mast. Published in 1840, the book included a description of the geography around Dana Point.
