A Winter Wonderland in Orange County

Well, not exactly the “winter wonderland” that you typically might envision…

Sunny days, waving palm trees, mid 70s.  Doesn’t exactly sound like a winter wonderland to me, but it sure sounds like a place I want to be in December!

Enter Orange County.  It might have been raining last week, but this week we are back on track with temperatures in the mid 70s and sunny, cloudless skies!

Some good ways to get outside and enjoy the weather:

- It’s the perfect time of year to visit an amusement park, like Disneyland (map) or Knott’s Berry Farm (map).  Check out the Disney section for tips and features at the park!

- Take your dogs to one of Orange County’s many dog parks to let them stretch their legs after being cooped up inside all weekend.

- Take a hike!

- Do your holiday shopping at an outdoor mall, such as the Irvine Spectrum (map).

- Go for a walk in Downtown Fullerton (map), or the town closest to you!  There are lots of other people out and about so nice weather is a great opportunity to people watch!
