In southern California, we don’t have to deal with much of a winter. No one is shoveling snow or salting sidewalks. No one stays indoors for weeks just praying for the return of the sun. We live a pretty lucky life! One of the best parts of year-round sun is there is no bad day for a day at the park.
Museums fill up our community with culture and creativity. They make communities whole! We love suggesting local museums to our residents when they’re in need of new ideas for activities. We picked a few of our favorites nearby to share with you!
We never grow out of wanting to play. And bowling isn’t just for kids anymore – adults can hang too! These bowling centers inspire fun and silliness for kids and adults. No one has to be a grown up at these places.
St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us, and that means it is time to break out the shamrocks and get ready to party Irish style! There’s no better time of year to celebrate the rich culture of Ireland, and no better place in Orange County than an authentic Irish pub. You’ll get the feel of the old country and before long, you’ll be feeling the luck of the Irish! Try one of these local Irish pubs to enjoy a piece of the Emerald Isle.
Is it your strong belief that “Earth” without “Art” is just “Eh”? We love art as much as you do! We found some fantastic local art galleries – a great way to spend a weekend alone or with friends. Each has a different environment, from social to silent.
Good food makes for a good mood. With so many wonderful, vintage diners in Irvine, there’s no excuse for a bad mood! Diners may have a low-key, even grunge, look to them on the outside, but there’s the most amazing American-style food on the inside. We love our local diners! We found three of our favorites in the area.
Life is short; Go shopping. There’s so much to do around our apartment community, especially shopping! We have so many options for whatever you’re in the mood for. Personally, we love boutiques. We found a few local luxury boutiques in the area that are worth the price tag.
Do you like to unwind and have a low-key hang at local sports bars? So do we! It’s nice to relax with your friends after a long week. And if there’s anything SoCal is known for, it’s top-notch relaxing talent. We found some great local sports bars that promote hardcore let-your-hair down, good vibes.
Is seafood in your top five favorite foods? It made our list too. An advantage to living so near the water is we have the best seafood this side of the coast! We found some of our favorite seafood places in the area for you to try.
Sugar and spice and everything that’s nice about the world: desserts! We love to take note of our local dessert places in the area. Do you know where to go when you get a sweet tooth craving? We found a few places, just a quick drive away, that will satisfy your dessert needs.
