    America's Favourite Pasttime - Baseball

    by Reznut Updated Feb 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in Orange or anywhere in Southern California during the summer months, why not catch a game of baseball with the Anaheim Angels at Edison Field?

    You can easily just take the train to the stadium since the AmTrak and Metrolink stop are right next to the parking lot! If you would rather drive, check out the website for driving directions.

    Cool Ice Hockey

    Okay, I'm embarrassed about the name of our local Ice Hockey team but they are fun to watch if you like the game. The Mighty Ducks are at our nearby Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, very close to the Angels baseball stadium Edison Field.

    Come spend a day with them Mighty Ducks!

    Dromo indoor racing, Orange

    Here's a good alternative for guys and young kids, who are the target audience here for indoor racing entertainment. Lots of adrenaline comes out of this place. Dromo races run inside a very easy-to-miss building a few miles away from Angel Stadium and the Honda Center (Old Arrowhead Pond arena).

    Equipment: check website

    Seek out Santiago Oaks

    by marinarena Written Nov 8, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In East Orange, one can enjoy the rugged outdoors of Santiago Canyon. There are 350 acres of natural beauty and outdoor fun away from the city-suburban life. Sycamore trees are abundant here. Be cautious of poison oak and, oh yeah, MOUNTAIN LIONS! They don't usually go near humans. This is a prime OC place for hiking, birdwatching, and gladly, gazing at water!
    There is no swimming in the lake. You wouldn't want to do it anyway by the looks of it!

    Equipment: a good pair of walking shoes
    a jacket
    a stick to ward off rattlesnakes, as an extra cautious tip

    Los Alamitos

    In central west Orange county, you can spend time at the races. OK, it's not the Kentucky Derby but it's a good old time at the Los Alamitos Race Track. The area around is rather flat and open. The city of Los Alamitos and neighboring Cypress are also good for golfing activities.

    Check website for details

    Equipment: Bring a hat with a wide brim and glasses , especially in the late spring and summer because this is in sunny southern Califronia!
