Ah, the California Coast. It's hard to beat driving on the Pacific Coast Highway, windows down, salty breeze in the air and the view of the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Many California visitors rent a cheap Orange County rental car for this very reason -- driving along the Pacific Coast Highway (also known to locals as Highway 1) is a must-do.
If you're like most visitors to Orange County, you're here to see a few old friends with mouse ears as well. Choosing a hotel in Anaheim gives you quick and easy access to your favorite Disney characters. For an additional fee to your Disneyland park ticket, you can include admission to neighboring California Adventure -- well worth a visit to learn about Californian culture and see re-creations of popular Golden State landmarks.
Day trippers can head north to Los Angeles for Universal Studios, Hollywood and Beverly Hills -- or south to San Diego. There's Legoland, the Zoo and SeaWorld for the kids, and La Jolla and the Gaslamp district for the grownups.
Looking for a place to unwind? No trip to Orange County is complete without a visit to the beach. Huntington Beach's golden sands offer the perfect spot to hang out and join in a game of volleyball, that is, if your serving and spiking skills aren't too rusty. Always wanted to try surfing? You've come to the right place. Huntington Pier, nicknamed "Surf City USA" is your best bet.
