The Beauty of Orange County

Every mega-region in the country is jealous of Southern California because of how beautiful the weather is year-round. While other cities have battled rain and snow since November, we’ve been dealing with 75-degree beach days that have probably made us question our stance on Global Warming. Fortunately, there’s a lot to do around here. So as you’re preparing your to-do list this spring, we’ve got a few things worth considering. After all, the rest of the country needs someone to live vicariously through.

Hiking

There’s a four-mile jewel of a hike that winds in and out of Weir Canyon. Between serene valleys, rugged foothills and sights toward the higher reaches of the Santa Ana Mountains, the views will steal your breath throughout the trek. And best of all, this relatively small sliver of land is one of the newest trails of the Orange County regional parks. Be one of the first to make your own tracks!

Relaxing

If you head south on the 55 and drive ‘til it ends, you’ll find yourself in Newport Beach. And if you find yourself in Newport Beach, you’ve found Balboa Island. One of the loveliest places in California, Balboa Island puts shopping, boating and eating into a blender and cooks up one of the most relaxing atmosphere’s you’ll ever step into. And if you’re free on May 20th, stop by the ArtWalk for over one mile of art, booths and live music.

Eating

On Sunday, June 3, from 11 am to 5:30 pm, the Tustin Street Fair and Chili Cook-Off will take Old Town Tustin by storm. Featuring craft booths, non-profit food vendors, a kids area and a whole slew of entertainment, the 28th annual event is a can’t-miss for you and your taste buds. The event is great for the whole family and all procedes go to local charities. Also, come check out the MeadeFirst Booth, we will be featuring our Tri-tip chili.

Baseball

From ticket prices to the level of play, Angels baseball is extremely competitive in Anaheim, especially with the off-season signings of all-stars Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson. Although most tickets are expensive, the Big A Plan will get you ten tickets for $15 each. At an unbeatable price, you can enjoy the thrills of Major League Baseball in an outdoor setting tailored perfectly for an outing with family and friends.

Old Towne Orange

The historic district of Old Towne Orange is a one square-mile patch of land that contains many original structures from the 1940s. Of those edifices, one of the finest is The Filling Station Café, which bridges a distinct offering of food and beverages with a nostalgic atmosphere that reflects the local community’s history and heritage.

Between this list of to-do’s and the natural backdrop that supports them, Southern California gives you plenty of reasons to get outside. So what are you waiting for?
