Things to do in Orange County, California

Orange County life revolves largely around the glorious white sand beaches which lines the area’s coastline. Lined with rich ecological reserves, the beaches of Orange County, California, are both a haven for nature lovers and water sport enthusiasts. Surfing, especially on Huntington Beach, is a hugely popular activity to try from an Orange County holiday rental, as almost everyone you see on the beaches will be ether on or by a surf board. There are over 200 bird species which call the reserves of Orange County home, and the wetlands of the coast harbour many animal species.

Orange County golf courses are among the best that you can find, competing for the title with the many fine golf courses of Florida. However, there are none which manage to incorporate such breathtaking scenery with such ease. No matter how badly you are playing, the landscape will keep you cheerful and relaxed! With regard to golf courses, Orange County holiday rentals are all within just a few miles of a top quality course, as there are more than 50 in the county.

The Orange County countryside is an outdoor activity haven too. Away from the coastline, the area is crossed with marked trails for walking, cycling and bird watching. Back Bay, Bolsa Chica and Anaheim tend to be the most popular locations for taking a stroll in natural surroundings.

Places to holiday in Orange County, California

The city of Dana Point lies by the sea, and is home to one of the few marinas along the Orange County Coastline. Aside from the sailing, Dana Point is a favourite destination for surfers due to a break which has been dubbed by locals as ‘killer Dana’. The Dana Wharf is an excellent spot for fishing, and it was here that one of the only specimens of megamouth sharks was caught.

Newport Beach has a huge amount to offer tourists, with excellent body boarding spots all along the Balboa Peninsula. The most famous landmark in Newport Beach is the Balboa Pavilion, which is the centre of many of the town’s most popular leisure activities, from the huge Ferris wheel to fishing piers.

Of the 42km of coastline in Orange County, Huntington Beach is the best spot for surfing. ‘Surf City USA’ as it is known hosts the Surfing Masters every year, but throughout the year, Orange County holiday rentals on Huntington Beach are filled with those who want to conquer ‘the wave’.

Average daily temperatures are over 21°C, all year round. In summer, this rises to around 26°C, but a packing a jumper will ensure that you never have to worry about it getting cold, as even the evenings are warm.

Travel to Orange County, California

Orange County has its own airport, the brilliantly named John Wayne Airport (SNA), but unfortunately, it does not receive any direct flights from the UK. There are a huge number of internal flights which reach John Wayne, so despite a short stop-over, reaching a holiday rental in Orange County, California should not pose too many problems.

Excellent apartment - very well appointed and very comfortable

5 of 5
My son and I stayed in Irvine for five weeks on a work visit. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is set up perfectly for longer (or shorter) stays. We arrived after a long flight to find some of the basics already there. This made us feel very welcome. There television and entertainment system is first rate and there is some sports equipment in the laundry cupboard. The apartment complex itself is extremely well set up. It includes a pool, gym and movie theatre! We had a great time in Irvine and this apartment was a big part of that.
