Orange County has grown in popularity ever since the O.C. first aired on television over a year ago. This television program shined a light on a very trendy place in Southern California, and has helped to make this one of the trendiest places a person will find.

This may not have been a destination you had in mind before, but after you see this list of what a turn rest can see in Orange County you are going to want to make this your next destination.

Bilbo Baggins of OC – if you are a fan of the movie the Hobbit, then this is a destination you will not want to miss. Offering an incredible seven course meal that includes champagne and hors d’oeuvres if you so desire, you will be treated like a true celebrity here and have some of the finest cuisine the Shire has ever offered.

Knott’s Berry Farm – this may be a destination you’ve heard of before, but have never visited. This will be your opportunity that you cannot only enjoy the amusement park itself, but also all of the great activities that are around. The California transportation system will be able to get you there if you so desire, so don’t feel like you have to miss out on this fantastic site.

Fox Theatre – this old theater is not as charming as it once was, but the fact that it still remains in its rustic and crumbling condition adds a certain charm to it. The fact that it dates back to the days of gangsters and speakeasies will make it a destination you will surely not want to miss out on.

Newport Dunes – if you are looking for the opportunity for fine dining, a day out on a boat, or just laying out in the sun, then this is a great location for you. The Newport Dunes offers an array of activities for you that will make your time in Orange County truly memorable. The best part is that if you had just a long day out the sun and are a little fatigued after enjoying a great meal you can use an Orange County car service to help you to get back to your destination.

Newport Beach – besides just being a great destination, Newport Beach also has one of the most fantastic film festivals each year. If you’ve never been to it before, you will want to make sure that you include this as a part of your vacation time. There are literally over 400 different selections available for you to view, giving you previews and critiques.

Old World’s Oktoberfest – even if you are in California you can still feel like it’s Germany, at least for part of the year. This Oktoberfest is one for the ages, as you not only get authentic food, but great oompah bands, plus you get to see the most entertaining dachshund race you’ve ever seen. If the German culture is something that appeals to you, you’ll feel like you’re in Bavaria.
