Visiting Orange County

It's springtime in Orange County and it’s hot. Events, festivals, and activities abound, from Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm and the 42 miles of beaches, to concerts, sports, and celebrations. A sure sign of spring and summer in Orange County are the Los Angeles Angels on the field in Anaheim. Don’t miss a summer evening at Angel Stadium cheering on the MLB Angles.

There are more than great waves in Surf City USA.
