Orange County in California can easily be one of the most amazing places that we have visited recently

Aside from being a stunning beach destination with beautiful locations and views all around. It might offer 42 miles of beaches but the place is much more than just another beach destination. There are tons of fun things to do other than just spending some time soaking in the sun and enjoying the water.

Make sure to pack your favorite snacks so that you can enjoy a relaxing picnic.

Check out Dana Point Harbor

This recreational harbor is located on the western coast and is filled with shops, bars, and restaurants. You can spend hours having fun on it. You can have lunch and do some shopping without ever having to spot enjoying the beautiful views.

Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park

Since it is located relatively close to Disneyland it often gets overlooked by visitors. But it is an amazing park where you get to go on amazing rides and roller coasters and have an amazing time for a fraction of the price.

And most importantly, it isn’t nearly as crowded as Disneyland.

With dozens of rides, you won’t get bored for at least one whole day. Plus it is home to California’s largest inverted roller coaster. Little kids can also have fun in it, there are tons of rides perfect for the smaller members of the family.
