Shame on me (and many other OC'ers)! Only until recently did I discover that there is an official OC Zoo! I had known of the tiny Santa Ana Zoo within the city, however further east is the regional zoological dome of animals especially of southwest USA. Located within Irvine Regional Park is the 477 acre zoo which features the popular California beast, the black bear and the mountain lion. If not much of a wildlife enthusiasts, come here just to take in a rustic, rural atmosphere while still being in a big city. No personal pics yet, but check out website : http://www.ocparks.com/oczoo

Irvine Regional Park is nestled among a grove of heritage Oak and Sycamore trees. The rolling foothills surrounding the park are filled with a variety of wildlife. Trees, shaded turf areas provide a serene setting for leisure activities. Santiago Creek bisects the park and a pond with stone-work waterfall and foot bridge is located in the center of the park. The variety of landscape greatly enhances the park's beauty.
Hours vary, check website.
$5/vehicle on weekends. $3/vehicle on weekdays.
My rating: 4 stars out of 5.

Inside the cathedral can make of a wonderful religious experience. If you are not religious, you'd be impressed greatly with the experience of viewing spectatcular architecture.
About the cathedral...
it has 10,000 panes of reflective glass, allowing 8% of outside light into the church.
Much more in travelogues!

The historic city center in Orange consists of a traffic circle with a beautiful mini park in the center. We spent a good amount of time hanging out here whenever the students left campus. There is plenty of people watching to be had here. And one can admire the towering orange tree in the park.

Check out Chapman University's campus. I found the open spaces and gardens beautiful and nice to walk around. The university was founded in 1861 and has gone through a few name changes but ultimately was named after a benefactor of the college in 1934. For more history go here
It is very close to the orange traffic circle and the surrounding restaurants on Glassel st.

Fun-filled, family entertainment in Garden Grove, Held every Memorial Day (the end of May) . Eat strawberries on a shortcake pastry or just plain! Oh, and besides enjoying the tasty food, you can play at the game booth, do arts and crafts and hear concerts. Local and some Hollywood type celebrities show their face and give some time here.
The event is held downtown, on the beautiful Village Green area with cobblestone and just an overall charming old-fashioned look.
