Top 4 Places to Visit in Orange County

Friday, September 25, 2020

Even during COVID-19, there are still places open for visitors. Orange County is famous for so many places and things to do. Many people know it as being the hub for all celebrities, family vacations, and beautiful beaches. Orange County destinations are great for visitors or new residents to the area. 

Between amusement parks, art, beaches, and my favorite FOOD, the OC has everything you want and need in a vacation (or permanent residence). In no specific order, I have included, in my opinion, the top 4 attractions Orange County has to offer. Let's get started!

If you would like to do something the whole family would enjoy, no matter the age, theme parks are going to be your go-to destination. Whether you're going during the week when quieter and less crowded or at the busy season in the summer, theme parks provide adventure, enjoyment, and memories that will last for a lifetime.

Knott's Berry Farm

Knotts Berry Farm is known as the original theme park and is in Buena Park. Knotts is a fun part of California's history. According to 10best.com, Knotts Berry Farm includes 160 acres of thrill rides. And of course, what's better than a water park in the summer? Knott's Soak City Waterpark is a separately gated 15- acre water adventure park immediately adjacent to Knott's Berry Farm. There's loads of fun waiting for you here! While the theme park isn't open just yet, the hotel and Marketplace are currently open. 

Disneyland

Everyone in the family can enjoy Disney. From Disneyland Resort to Disney California Adventure, there's so much fun awaiting you in the OC. A visit to the original Disney destination, the Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California, is high on the bucket list of so many families. It's known as the Happiest Place on Earth, so why not visit. Many local residents have annual passes since the amusement park is so close to LA, and so many people live near it. Locals are the ones that mainly affect crowd levels, much more so than at the popularly known Disney World, where most visitors are out-of-towners. While the main park is closed at this time, there is plenty to see at Downtown Disney District. 

Laguna Beach 

I know everyone has heard of the iconic Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach has beautiful beaches as well as fantastic snorkeling spots for the adventurist. Some of the best diving and snorkeling beaches, according to https://www.visitlagunabeach.com/things-to-do/beaches/snorkeling-diving-beaches/, are Crescent Bay, Shaw's Cove, Fisherman's Cove, and Diver's Cove. Why not try something new and see what beautiful things the ocean has to offer. SoCal Snorkeling tours, which are exclusively in Laguna Beach, are super popular in Orange County. They have 2-hour trips, include high-quality gear, and have high-quality photos available so you can experience the fun after!

Newport Beach

There is much to do in Newport Beach, from Whale Watching to shopping at Fashion Island. I highly recommend the Beaches and Beer Tours hosted by Orange County Urban Adventures. Get a comprehensive tour of Newport Beach hitting seven stops along the way. Stroll through Newport Beach and watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean from the end of the Newport Beach Pier. Hop on the Ferry to Balboa Island for some amazing drinks to end the day. 

If you are interested in catching a few waves or getting a quick tan, Orange County has some of the most beautiful beaches in California. They have attractions that are great for couples, families or even those that want to get away alone. 

In conclusion, Orange County is a fantastic place and has so much to offer to a new resident or even just someone stopping in for a quick visit. They also have some amazing properties to offer if you are looking for a new home.
