Sabroso Taco, Beer & Music Festival: The Offspring, Sum 41, Lucha Libre & Competitive Eating

When I first heard about this festival, which combines music and tacos I knew it was going to be something I needed to attend. Add to that the fact that the music was the perfect collection of bands from when I was in high school (Offspring, Sum 41, Lit, Unwritten Law) and you had the […]

Bowers Museum: An Art & History Museum in Santa Ana

Created in 1932, the Bowers Museum is one of Orange County’s premier museums with over 100,000 pieces in its collection. The museum is only a few miles south of Disneyland, and everything from the building it is housed in, to the exhibits themselves, has been well thought out and displayed in an engaging way. I […]

Victoria Beach: The Pirate Tower of Laguna

Laguna Beach is one of the most popular areas in all of Orange County, thanks in part to the TV show of the same name; however, Victoria Beach still feels like a relatively hidden gem. That is most likely because the parking is incredibly difficult, but if you are willing to wait for a spot, […]

Black Star Canyon Falls: One of Southern California’s Best & Most Elusive Waterfall

Located in the hills of Orange County, Black Star Canyon Falls is one of Southern California’s most beautiful waterfalls. The problem with it is that it only flows after a lot of rain, since the area that it drains is relatively small. This makes it an elusive waterfall to see, and one that hasn’t been […]

Discovery Cube and Kids Museum in Orange County

If you are exploring Orange County with kids, then you really need to make sure the Discovery Museum is on your list. This playground of over 100 interactive exhibits can easily keep a small family busy for an entire day. Some of the standouts are the large full-scale dinosaur you can walk through and the […]

Dana Point Harbor Waterfall: One of SoCal’s Most Spectacular Seasonal Waterfalls

Over the past four years, California has been in a drought, and the waterfalls that are prevalent in Southern California have become nothing more than a trickle. 2017 changed this though with a ton of rain that lead to strong flows from some of the most elusive waterfalls, like this one in Dana Point Harbor. […]

Medieval Times: Dinner & Jousting for the Whole Family in Buena Park

Medieval Times is a dinner theater in Buena Park that features a nightly show where there is jousting, fighting, horse tricks and even a falcon that makes an appearance. It is one of those places I went to a couple of times growing up but didn’t think I would enjoy when I was an adult. […]

Sidecar Doughnuts & Coffee in Orange County

Sidecar Doughnuts and Coffee has become a staple for the Orange County doughnut scene and one of my personal favorite spots for the culinary adventure that is eating a good donut. Located only a 10 minute drive from the beach, Sidecar is a place you are pretty much guaranteed to wait in line at when you […]

Biking from Huntington Beach Pier to Newport Beach Pier

If you are into road biking, there are so many fantastic trails in southern California. Everything from the Santa Ana River Trail to just biking around Joshua Tree National Park is available to you. One of the best things about Southern California though is the amazing beach trails that you can bike, I especially like the […]

PokiNometry: Create Your Own Poke Bowl in Anaheim

I am a huge fan of poke bowls, as they combine all of the best parts of a sushi roll, minus the seaweed, in a big bowl for you to eat. When I heard about PokiNometry, which takes that a step further by letting you actually create your own bowl, much like the way you […]
