Orange County is located south of Los Angeles and is the third most populated county in California. Beaches, bike trails and coastal mountains.
Home to Disneyland, the O.C. was the orange growing region of Southern California – until the developers took over in 1950, turning it into shopping, freeways and large residential neighborhoods we know today. The Orange County beaches are by far the hot spots, with places like San Juan Cap, Dana Point & Laguna Beach. Lots of surf memorabilia & surf culture. Trains serve the coastal cities daily, so no need to sit in L.A. traffic.
For those seeking campgrounds, hikes, or mountain biking trails, Ortega Highway 74 will lead inland to oak chaparral mountains w/ wilderness. Off roading trails can be found at Wild-O-mar, overlooking Lake Elsonore.
Franko Maps is the company that makes colorful, waterproof, Orange County Maps.
