5 Secrets About Living in Orange County You Have to Hear

From the magic of Disneyland to the chill vibes of Huntington Beach, Orange County is home to a lot of popular tourist destinations. But what people who are new to the area wouldn’t know is that Orange County is also full of a lot of other hidden gems. Check out these five secrets about living in Orange County that only locals would know!
 

1. It’s not always how it looks on tv

Orange County is known as the infamous backdrop to popular shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills, and The O.C. These shows often depict beautiful stars having the time of their lives as they cruise along the traffic-free coast in their Mercedes or frolic down the empty beaches in Newport. While these portrayals may have some truth behind them, others are pure exaggerations for the sake of entertainment. In reality, some of these shows weren’t even filmed in Orange County. So no, locals don’t actually call Orange County “The O.C.” and not everyone drives a Mercedes, but there are so many reasons why the reality of Orange County is even better than how it appears on television. Good food? Check. Awesome people? You bet. Fun adventures? Of course. Orange County really does have it all and television shows just don’t do this extraordinary place justice.
 

2. Traffic is no joke

…but there are ways to get around it! If you’ve ever been to Orange County, you’ve probably heard people referring to the 5, the 22, the 55, and the 405. These seemingly random numbers are actually names of freeways and talking about the best way to navigate the roads is like another language to Orange County residents. Orange County natives have mastered the art of the sometimes hectic freeways and you can too by following these tips. First, avoid rush hour. Although it varies depending on the freeway and your direction of travel, the weekday morning commute is generally from 7:30am to 9am, while the after-work commute typically lasts from 4pm to 6:30pm. Fridays, however, are a whole different story with the after-work commute starting as early as 1pm. If you’re traveling on the weekend, it’s best to start early or after dinner to avoid the potential traffic from people heading off to their next adventure. Another helpful tip is to download Google Maps or Waze. Unlike some other GPS systems, these apps offer alternative routes and route changes to help you get to your destination as quickly as possible. Since Orange County has so many exciting things to do and something for everyone in each city, the freeways can get a bit crazy, but the priceless memories you’ll make from your day trip to the beach or the many laughs you’ll have during your amusement park adventure will make the commute more than worth it!
 

3. The best day to go to the beach is Wednesday

…or any weekday really. It’s no secret that Orange County is home to some of the best beaches along the West Coast. There’s the infamous Newport Beach, tourist favorite Laguna Beach, and the holy grail of surfing, Huntington Beach, just to name a few! But with the wildly popular beaches comes the huge crowds and parking nightmare. So when’s the best time to go to your favorite beach without all the hassle? Well, from our experience living in Orange County, we found that the middle of the week is the best time to escape the crowds that tend to populate every Saturday and Sunday. If you are going on a weekend, however, try to beat the rush and head to the beach in the early morning. Nothing sounds better than a peaceful morning relaxing on the beach followed by a delicious brunch along the water. Another beach tip is to avoid the peak of summer if possible. Autumn is an ideal time to visit the beach and it’s Southern California so the weather is always perfect regardless of the time of year!
 

4. Orange County is home to a lot of foodies

From the octopus ceviche at Javier’s in Newport Beach to the soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung in Costa Mesa, Orange County hosts a wide variety of cuisine. Every city has their specialties, so almost every type of food is accessible as long as you know where to go. Want to find the best food without taking all the time and effort to do the research? Check out some of our past blogs to find the best dessert spots , top brunch destinations, and more!
 

5. Orange County really is the best place to live!

Orange County has more than just gorgeous beaches and yummy grub. The fantastic sights, relaxing vibes, and plethora of things to do are giving locals so much to love about their hometowns. Comprised of 34 cities with over three million residents, Orange County is much more diverse than television may lead people to believe. Looking for a quiet place where you can walk around the farmer’s’ market or browse antique stores? Old towne Orange is the perfect place for you. Maybe you want something with a bit more nightlife? Check out Fullerton and everything the city has to offer. In Orange County, there truly is something for everyone!

Thing to Do This Halloween in Orange County

Finding Halloween activities in Orange County isn’t hard to do, but choosing between all of them is! This year is going to be even bigger than the previous years because everyone is finally realizing just how much fun the spooky events are. Plus, there are tons more family friendly options this year than ever, so you don’t have to wait until trick or treating to get the kids involved.
Check out a few of our favorite picks this year:

Mickey’s Halloween Party

With years and years of just decorating the park during Halloween, Disney finally got in on the action and created a family friendly experience where adults and children alike get to dress up and trick or treat together!
You didn’t misread that; everyone gets their own candy, both adults, and kids. It not only gets you out as a family, but it lets parents (and non-parents) get to rekindle the feeling they had as a child when they used to go house to house getting candy.
This isn’t the only feature of Mickey’s Halloween Party that you won’t want to miss. There are themed decorations, bags, collectors pins, spooky Disney villains, the Headless Horseman who leads a special Halloween parade, and the Halloween Screams fireworks show.
All of this and more are available only to those who go to Mickey’s Halloween Party (tickets are sold separate from day time admission.)
 

Knott’s Scary Farm

Adolescents and brave kids can make the trip, but leave the little ones at home because this is one Halloween event that is meant to scare your socks off! Knott’s Scary Farm has been a staple of SoCal scares for several years, and they are frequently changing the chills and thrills with each passing year.
The main attraction is the many creepy themed mazes scattered throughout the park, but there are tons of other cool features to enjoy! Among the attractions are all the usual rides like Ghostrider that will be fully functioning during the festivities, numerous shows including Elvira’s Last Show (a stage show), and cast members running around the park scaring all who dare enter.
Knott’s Scary Farm is a classic destination for all of the true Halloween junkies out there!
 

Tanaka Farms Pumpkin Patch

 
Tanaka Farms Annual Pumpkin Patch is a blast for the whole family! It also happens to be the most affordable to make our list, with free parking and $2 entry daily. If you’d like to ride the wagon that takes you on a tour of the 30 acres, it only costs $5 for anyone over the age of 2.
This is one place that the kids will absolutely love! Not only are there thousands of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, but there is free face painting, balloons, and even a pumpkin cannon that shoots real pumpkins into the hills nearby!
 

Honorable Mentions

There are several other places that you can go to get your Halloween thrills, some of them year-round. There are even locations that require you to sign a waiver because they are so scary. 17th Door is one such location. These aren’t for the faint of heart, so research it before going!
Escape rooms are another awesome way to get into the Halloween spirit, and the good news is that most operate all year. They have horror themed problem-solving adventures that require you to solve the game to get out of a room within a certain time, or you fail.
Some are based on ideas like the movie Saw, and others require you to keep a pathogen inside to save the world! There are several different escape room locations throughout the OC, and each has their own unusual style!

Best Family Outings in Orange County

Looking for some fun family outings in Orange County? Look no more because we have some great ideas for your family trips.

We understand life can get really hectic sometimes. No matter how efficient we think we are we could all use a break from the usual grind to get refreshed.  This holds even more true for kids as it does for the adults.

When you are exhausted, and you notice that the kids are bored too, it makes sense to step out of the house, get some fresh air, and have a rejuvenating time outside. After all, nothing can beat a family excursion, and why should the kids feel left out!

Some great destination ideas for family outings in Orange County include:

  • Parks: Parks are always great. You don’t have to plan anything special, and the fun of riding big balloons never grows old. Parks are a wonderful place even if it’s just a small picnic or get-together with the family. They are budget friendly and also allow you to have some quiet time. If you still want some help, check out this fantastic link http://funorangecountyparks.com that covers almost all of Orange County.
  • Zoos to Farms: Kids really love to interact, especially when they get a chance to be with nature and wild life. It’s like a new door has been opened to them, and we happen to love it too! There are various zoos and farms, where you can closely explore some wild life. Kids can feed the small animals, like turtles and rabbits. They can even touch snakes and other reptiles. If the idea sounds interesting to you, pack your bags and take your kids to Centennial Farm, Santa Ana Zoo, OC Zoo (Orange), The Reptile Zoo (Fountain Valley), or Tanaka Farms.
  • Disneyland: Does it even need an introduction? Come on; we are all huge fans of Disneyland. It’s a heaven for both kids and adults. From dining with characters to watching the firecrackers, from shopping to recreational activities, it’s a great entertainment place for all of us. So, what is stopping you? Visit http://disneyland.disney.go.com/ and book the tickets already!
  • Glowing Ocean: The Pirate Coast Paddle Co. lets you have amazing guided SUP Glow Night tours of Newport Bay. You can get there on Friday and Saturday nights in the summer. There are waterproof LED lightings, which let boarders see marine life in the calm waters. For detailed info, visit com.
  • Go ahead and jump: With kids, we too become younger. And kids never get bored of jumping. This time, along with your children, unleash the child in you and wiggle out at several trampoline places throughout Orange County. For some more sporty fun, explore dodge-ball, basketball, foam pits and an arcade area. The places to check are Sky Zone, Anaheim Hills, and Westminster; Big Air, Buena Park and Laguna Hills; Get Air Surf City, Huntington Beach; Sky High Sports, Costa Mesa; and Rockin’ Jump, Santa Ana.
  • Water Parks: We can never get enough splashing or cool water during the summer. Water parks are everybody’s favorite family outing spots. The best of them is Soak City. With new water slides and many more fun options, you can have an incredible time. Just click https://www.knotts.com/play/soak-city and you are ready to go! Some other water parks are Splash, Raging Waters, Heritage Water Splash Pads, and Frontier Park, etc.
  • Adventure Zone: At gov, you would find the Adventure Playground. It lets kids raft on a small pond, climb across a rope bridge and slide down a mud slide. As the activities can be a little muddy, you may need to bring some extra clothes and towels.  It becomes even better. There are not one but two such parks with the same name in Orange County. The Adventure Playground at Irvine’s University Park is not a traditional playground. The kids can have some unstructured play, use their imagination to build, create and interact at Cityofirvine.org.
  • Museums: Many of us love to visit museums. Museums are cool. They are full of info, a bit mysterious and take us into a different era altogether. They are food for the wondering, curious minds. The best museums in Orange County are Discovery Science Center, Bowers Museum and Pretend City.
  • Movies and starlit sky: What could be more mesmerizing than watching movies on giant screens, under the starlit skies? There are communities that arrange such movie screenings, where families bring beach chairs and blankets and enjoy the show. The locations are Brea, Dana Point, Fountain Valley, Irvine, Lake Forest and Placentia.
  • For the love of books: Hello, book-lovers! For some of us, spending time with and around books is equally thrilling and refreshing as any other outing option. Sounds even better, if you get free books to read, at places like Pottery Barn Book Club. There are other options too, like Local Library Programs.

If you feel like checking out more ways to a lovely and entertaining family outing, don’t get disheartened. There are various websites and blogs, flooding with places to get you going.

OC Parks Concerts
The OC Park’s annual outdoor Summer Concert Series is kicking off in June at Craig Regional Park and making the rounds to Mason Regional Park, Irvine Regional Park, Mile Square Regional Park, and ending off in Bluff Park at Salt Creek Beach in late August.

Fun for the Family in Anaheim

Hello Orange County and welcome back to our blog!! Today Nicole and I want to share a few of our favorite spots to visit with family. Orange County, being as wonderful as it is, is filled with things to do. Trying to list them all would cramp our fingers and put you to sleep. So instead, today, we will focus on fun for the whole family in good old  Anaheim, CA.
First on our list, and for good reason, is Disneyland and Downtown Disney. People travel from around the world to visit such a magical place and we have it sitting in our backyard. How lucky are we? Disneyland is fun for the whole family including entertainment, thrill rides, childhood favorites and amazing food. If you find yourself thinking that you don’t have enough time for the full Disney experience… No worries, stop by Disney’s Downtown area! Full of amazing places to eat (Rainforest Cafe, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen , ESPN Zone and more) we promise you wont go hungry. Downtown Disney is also home to the House of Blues, the Lego Store, live music/entertainment and a movie theater. The park and staff truly never disappoint, so join in with the rest of the world and visit Americas’ favorite mouse house!!!
disneyland-cast
Next on our list is the Edison International Field of Anaheim, or Angel Stadium for short. The beautiful home of our Anaheim Angels and America’s favorite past time!! Nothing beats a family day at the ballpark, I can’t tell you how many wonderful memories my family and I have made at the “Big A”. We want you to share the same, so if you haven’t been, its time!  Not only does this amazing place offer baseball games but also concerts,  high flying motocross and Monster Truck Madness, Harvest Crusade in August and a long list of other family oriented entertainment. We promise you and the family a wonderful time. Don’t forget Friday night fireworks and as you pass by on the 57 freeway look up and say “Light Up That Halo!”

Up next…. and directly across the street from the “Big A” is the Honda Center. Home to our Anaheim Ducks, “Quack Quack.” All I want to say is if you have not been to a hockey game then you have not lived… How can you beat big toothless bearded men and fast paced excitement. It’s a clear cut winner for a family event, go once and I promise you’ll be back. Don’t forget to check for upcoming concerts! Artist like Brad Paisley, J. Cole and John Mayer will be there this summer. Don’t miss out!

How many of you know about the Anaheim Packing District? I won’t lie, I just discovered this amazing place last year. I sure am glad I did because I feel like I was missing out. It’s a wonderful place to take the family. Set up like a mall, you walk end to end and are tempted with delicious food and desserts. Pair that with live music and adult beverages and you have fun for the whole family.
anaheim-packing-district
And last but certainly not least is Anaheim’s Adventure City. Many of you may have never even heard of this place, but if you have young children it’s is a hidden gem. It’s a fantastic alternative to the other high priced amusement parks in the area and a great way to get the kids to burn up some of that relentless energy. The park is equipped with a dozen or so rides, a children’s theater, petting zoo and a fun filled arcade. The park only opened in 1994 and is looking to expand soon, if you have not been we suggest packing the family up and taking a trip.
