California’s Top Beaches

September 16th, 2014

Visit California's Top BeachesWhile you are in town, take a short ride and enjoy miles and miles of some of the most alluring beaches in California. Orange County beaches take up approximately 42 miles of coastline and are composed of six beach cities. Take a long walk on the beach, enjoy the sunset, an evening bonfire and cookout, and/or surf lessons. There is so much to appreciate about these amazing shores.

Huntington Beach can be summed up with ‘Surf City USA’. Filled with surf shops, tan surfers and perfect waves, it is the surfer’s paradise.

Newport Beach is not only sandy beaches but championship golf courses, the largest small craft yacht harbor in the US and a wide variety of aquatic activities for the old and the young.

Seal Beach is Orange County’s northern most beach. Named after the seals that once frequented the area, this coastline is now home of quaint neighborhoods giving it a down-to-earth, small town feel.

Dana Point is deemed one of the most romantic spots in Orange County featuring panoramic seaside views and a stunning cove.

San Clemente oozes with a charming ambience. Featuring Spanish architecture and a Mediterranean feel,  this pristine beach is home to an annual sand castle contest and many other family activities.

Last but not least is Laguna Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the area. Filled with hillside mansions and upscale shopping areas featuring the hottest trends, this rugged coastline of cliffs is not only majestic but relaxing.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

July 22nd, 2014

Los Angeles Angels of AnaheimWhile in Anaheim, why not take the opportunity to take in one of America’s favorite past-times. The Los Angeles Angels calls Anaheim home and play home games at Angels Stadium of Anaheim. This baseball club/organization was started in 1892 and played in the Pacific coast League until 1957 after which they were then moved to Spokane, Washington later to become a minor league affiliate of the Major League Baseball before becoming one of the favorite teams along the West coast in 1961 by Gene Autry.

Currently in second place in the American League West, the Angels are a favorite of many and as always, provide an exciting game. Winning eight division titles and one world series title in 2002, the Angels have a loyal following. As of 2014, five Guinness World Records have been set by Angels fans for largest gatherings of people wearing Cowboy hats, Luchador masks, blankets, wigs and Santa hats. Come join the crowd

What is more enjoyable than enjoying an American game while eating a foot long hot dog and listening to the crack of a bat as it hits a homerun? You can purchase tickets online at the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim website. This week the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim take on the Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers. Game times start at 7:05 pm each evening.

Visit The Santa Ana Zoo

July 3rd, 2014

Santa Ana ZooIf you haven’t had enough animals on your visit, head over to the local Santa Ana Zoo for a little variety of exotic animals. The Santa Ana Zoo, located nearby, is  a nice contrast to the massive and crowded LA Zoo. Not only do you skip out on the traffic, you get free parking also!

Take a ride around the park on the train. With a tour of the 20 acres of animal sanctuary, you get to plot out your plan of attack. Visit the Rainforest Exhibit and enjoy the waterfalls and amazing greenery before venturing over to the Amazon Aviary to see the exotic birds native to South and Central America. Still not impressed, what about the Strawberry Poison-dart Frog or the Goliath Birdeater Tarantula. There is a good chance you don’t see those every day. You can get your fill of monkeys as the Zoo is required to keep 50 monkeys in the park at all times. The Farm Exhibit features rare farm animals and is centered around the two-story red barn that houses many of the larger animals. Peek in and see what you haven’t seen before.

Kids enjoy the play area after exploring the animals. Mom and dad can kick back and relax while the kids play. The Zoo is open daily with extended hours during the summer. Check out the zoo’s website for more information and upcoming events.

Vintage: The New Fad

April 17th, 2014

BowlingVintage is the new fashion and craze. Anything that appears to be 10 years or older is considered vintage and the demand for such has risen exponentially. We don’t have jewelry, clothes or home decor (read: rotary phone) for you but we do have some suggestions for a vintage date. This may be just what you need to escape the text messages, facebook and instagram for the evening.

Roller skating went out of style so we are bringing it back. Holiday Skate Center can help bring that vintage feel to your afternoon or evening. Set the in-line skates aside, we are going full vintage and talking about the quad skates. Grab a pair and hit the floor. You may feel the need for a poodle skirt or hair gel to get in the mood.

Bowling never really went out of style, as you can tell by these modern bowling alleys, but we think the game is still ‘vintage’. Try some friendly competition at Lucky Strike Lanes, Concourse Bowling Center or AMF Carter Lanes. They even come equipped with arcade games. Not as vintage as the coke float with two straws but think 1980’s and Pac-Man.

Speaking of coke floats, check out Brianna’s Ice Cream. It doesn’t have the same soda shop feel, you need to head over to Flo’s V8 inside Disneyland Park for that, but they still have the same ‘goods’. Grab a thick, creamy milkshake or a coke float and kick back to an earlier time and place.
