The excellent waves and golden sands of Orange County’s beaches make it hallowed ground for surfing, but it’s no sleepy beach community. The “O.C.” as it’s affectionately called, is home to some of the most affluent suburbs in Southern California. Theme parks like the Disneyland® Park and Disney’s California Adventure® Park and Knott’s Berry Farm bring family fun, and there are plenty of sophisticated activities to be found in Orange County as well. Enjoy ballet or an orchestra at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, or inspiration of a more spiritual nature at the Crystal Cathedral. These are just a few of the diverse activities you’ll find in the picturesque coastal area covering almost 1,000 square miles (2,500 square kilometers) between Los Angeles to the north and San Diego to the south.
In picturesque Laguna Beach, you’ll have no trouble seeing why impressionist Norman St. Clair and so many other artists have found this spot so inspirational. By 1920, half the residents here were artists. Today the creative community continues to thrive. Create your own masterpieces at one of the art classes held every Friday and Saturday at Sawdust Studios at Laguna Beach.
Santa Ana offers many activities suited to families. The Bowers Museum is small in size but big on educating visitors about present and past cultures, with a special section for kids. Get hands-on at the Discovery Science Center, known for its exhibits simulating rocket flights and earthquakes. At the Santa Ana Zoo there is a special focus on monkeys thanks to a requirement by the founder of the zoo back in 1952.
A drive 30 minutes south from Santa Ana takes you to Mission San Juan Capistrano. Learn the story of this historical and religious site founded in 1776 by a Spanish Catholic priest. More history awaits at Medieval Times where you’ll be treated like royalty as you feast at a banquet and watch jousting tournaments.
Beaches are what Orange County does best, so make like a local and head to one of the glorious stretches of soft sand and sky-blue water. Huntington Beach’s nickname “Surf City U.S.A.” says it all, while its wealthy neighbor, Newport Beach, is home to shopping paradise, Fantasy Island. If you prefer simple pleasures, walk the trails of Crystal Cove State Park. Here the views of the coastline offer perfect photo opportunities for your California adventure.
I loved the Disney shuttle and the Easter egg hunt. I didn’t like the small bathrooms, expensive parking, $100 down deposit for a prepaid room, and having my room switched for not checking in before 12.
Property was fantastic. You walk in and it looks like a million bucks. Room was very outdated for the Hilton name. No room in the washroom. Very tiny, you had to stand between the sink and the toilet just to close the door.
Overall clean and nice place to stay, very close to Disney. Room sink kept backing up and getting clogged.
The room was magical. The light display above the bed made the kids so happy. The one thing that could have been better, is that the bathroom was really small, and was not as kid friendly as we would have thought. Being a place with many kids, we would have assumed that the there would have been ...
This hotel was conveniently located near the entrance of Disneyland. The hotel had an awesome 50s vibe. The pool was large, there were large lawns with lawn games (corn hole, giant connect 4, etc.) Our hotel room was a good size and even had a little patio out back. Would definitely stay here ...
Location is great , walking distance to eat at restaurants
The hotel is beautiful and perfect. So convenient to the park. We absolutely loved it!!
The only thing I didn't like was that the air conditioner smell like urine and when I turned it on the whole Room stunk
