At one point or another, we’ve all daydreamed about packing up and living the beach life in Orange County. From sporting sun-bleached hair, to living in your swimsuit, to making California burritos your main diet staple, life is better by the beach. With a Hotwire Hot Rate, you can make that dream a reality for as long as you want.
Technically speaking, the OC includes 34 cities like Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Anaheim. Come see them all! Nab last-minute hotel deals in Orange County and see how you can feel like a true Californian on your trip.
Pirate Tower: Orange County hotels on the beach are something else. We’d hate to get into a fight with the locals by picking our favorite shoreline, but Victoria Beach comes out on top. This gorgeous area features blue crashing waves, tangerine sunsets, and a castle—yes, a castle. Pirate Tower looks like something out of a fairy tale, but it’s actually just a fancy stairwell.
Above the Rest: To see how lovely the OC really is, you need an aerial view. Luckily, there’s Great Park Balloon located in Irvine. This giant helium balloon, tethered to the ground, can hold up to 30 passengers and offers a 40-mile view of the landscape.
Happy Bellies: Californians are massive foodies, which is evident everywhere in the OC. Enjoy the prix fixe taco menu at Michelin award-winning Taco Maria in Costa Mesa. Pick up old-fashioned treats from Dad’s Original Frozen Banana in Newport Beach. And chow down on In-N-Out Burger’s secret menu, like animal-style fries. When you score a cheap hotel in Orange County, you’ll have more cash to spare for extra helpings.
Hang 10: If you really want to fit into the Cali scene, you’ll want to pick up a surfboard. Score a hotel near Huntington Beach so you’re close to big waves by the pier. Or book a spot in Newport Beach to tackle The Wedge—a stretch with waves reaching up to 30 feet. Yeah, on second thought, let’s save that spot for the pros. Doesn’t mean you can’t watch from the shore though!
There are some places that inspire dreams, and the OC is a city that actually fulfills them. From the beach scene to the food scene, it’s easy to imagine yourself as a Cali native. With a Hotwire Hot Rate, you can absolutely get to know the coast on the cheap. Whether you’re looking for perks like hotels in Orange County with a Jacuzzi or family fun with hotels near Disneyland, Anaheim, we have all your Cali dreams covered!
