Top Things To Do In Orange County

Here are some of the top things to do in Anaheim, CA and surrounding areas in Orange County: 

Dana Point Boat Tours 

Dana Point is a beautiful beach community with eclectic seaside shops and quaint boat marinas. Take a tour on a public or private charter and watch for dolphins and whales. Late evening tours are available, and you could experience an unforgettable sunset that just melts into the waves. Seeking something more adventurous? Deep sea fishing, parasailing, or kayaking opportunities are available along the shore for a one-of-a-kind adventure.  

Newport Beach Boat Tours 

Newport Beach is the perfect getaway to experience SoCal. With friendly neighborhoods and a beachside “Fun Zone” featuring a Ferris wheel at Balboa Pier, it’s a great place to take a day trip during your Orange County vacation. A boat tour can take you to all the best places, so you can create exciting memories that last a lifetime.   

Long Beach Boat Tours 

Long Beach is also a beautiful place to set sail, and there’s plenty to see from the deck of a tour charter as you cruise around the shoreline. These tours offer a perfect view for whale watching. From Humpback to Blue Whale sightings, be sure to keep your eyes open and alert so you don’t miss a second of these majestic sea creatures in their natural habitat. 

Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary 

When you’re ready for a break from the waves, plan a picnic at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary. It’s free to enter and features 12 acres of land just outside of Silverado where visitors can walk or hike and enjoy the natural California scenery. Here you’ll see hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and many other bird species that are native to the area.  

Geocaching Along The Coast 

Geocaching is a fun, treasure hunting-style game where players use GPS to hide and look for containers with various items. This is a great activity to do when vacationing in Orange County with kids and can be done alone or with large groups of people. And when you’re geocaching on the beach, it’s a lot like being a pirate and hunting for buried treasure!   

OC Ghost Tours 

Orange County is well known for its haunted past and a ghost tour is a great nighttime activity. You’ll get to walk around the historic buildings and learn their stories when the sun is down and it’s cooler out, which can be an entertaining nighttime activity after spending the day under the California sun.
