Flying into Orange County/Santa Ana is a great way to reach the Los Angeles Area while avoiding the traffic and bustle associated with LAX. You could make your way back north after you land to visit Los Angeles, but there’s plenty to do in and around Santa Ana.
Head for some relaxing R&R at nearby Huntington Beach. The Huntington Beach Pier is a great place to get a glimpse of the coastline or watch surfers catch a few waves. You’re sure to see some impressive rides -- Huntington Beach didn’t become known as Surf City USA for nothing. You can also fish in Huntington Beach or visit the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, a 1,300-acre estuary home to more than 200 bird species, everything from coots to kingfishers, ospreys to ibises.
Just down the coast from Huntington Beach is Newport Beach. It’s easy to see why the beach town has been the backdrop for so many famous movies and TV shows. With picturesque canals, a pair of piers, and an old-school amusement park, there’s plenty to see.
Take a trip to Garden Grove. Main Street provides a small-town feel with plenty to experience, such as specialty shops, great dining, vintage stores, and antique dealers. And they have special live events happening all year ‘round. There’s also a host of parks and the Crystal Cathedral, a church that looks more like a space ship than a place of worship.
