Orange County

Wedged between Los Angeles and San Diego, sun-kissed Orange County offers enviable stretches of golden beaches, unrivaled family attractions, world-class golf courses, and some of the best shopping in the country. Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort basks in the spotlight as the region’s most visited destination, but the string of coastal communities dotting the 42-mile shoreline holds an often-overlooked appeal, with stellar sunsets, secluded beaches, ecological reserves, art museums, and historic missions.

Why Go

For a healthy dose of beach bumming and hanging out in The OC’s coastal towns.
