Why We Love Orange County

Orange County is one of the most populated and visited areas in the entire county, with 3.19 million residents and a record-breaking average of 50 million tourists every year. This region is known for its strong outdoor culture, beachside activities, and a variety of options for shopping and dining. Attractions like Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Soak City are other big tourist draws.

The beaches are one of the best parts about this county, including Laguna, Newport, San Clemente, and Huntington. Huntington Beach holds the title of Surf City USA, as it hosts over 50 surf competitions every year. Surfing and other beach sports are an important component to life in Orange County.

Enthusiasts of the great outdoors will find plenty of options in this area. O.C. is home to more than 25 urban parks and preservers. This county has more than 7,000 acres of open land and 230 miles of hiking trails. Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, Aliso and Wood Canyons, and Irvine Regional Park are all local favorites.
