September 24, 2012
In last month’s post we started sharing some ideas of how and where to have fun in Orange County year round. But, our list is so long we couldn’t possibly include everything in one post. So here are some more fun ideas for you animal and nature lovers.
Nearby Santa Ana is a great destination with The Santa Ana Zoo at Prentice Park as one of its major attractions. Take the Zoofari Express train around the park or go check out the elephant rides. With 249 animals and 25 exhibits, you could easily spend the whole day talking to the animals.
For the nature lovers, the Fullterton Arboretum is a must-see destination. The Arboretum is located on the campus of Cal State, Fullterton, with 26 acres of exotic plants. Imagine meandering around the lush gardens, from the shade of the Redwood forest to a desert oasis and the rose garden, with its lush summer color and fragrance.
Summer is the perfect time of year to check out Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, one of the area’s most visited amusement parks. The amusement park has something for everyone from young children rides in Camp Snoopy to the ultimate high tech rides and roller coasters in Orange County. It’s a thrill seeker’s delight with nine roller coasters to choose from.
After a long day of fun you are bound to be hungry and a little tired. So come rest your feet with us at the Orange County Mining Co restaurant and enjoy a delicious dinner that will satisfy everyone member of the family and won’t break the budget.
