Spring break is just around the corner! If you’re short on ideas to keep your kids engaged for a whole week, here are five top-notch activities for Orange County families!
  1. Visit the animals at the Aquarium of the Pacific! Take a quick trip to Long Beach to see the home of over 11,000 seas animals! Exhibits include the sea otter habitat, mesmerizing jellies, shark lagoon, penguin habitat, and more!
  1. Explore Catalina Island! A wealth of activities are just a ferry ride away, from ghost tours to parasailing! Adventures are endless on the island, where your family can hike, kayak, zipline, and so much more!

  1. Hang out with mummies at Bowers Museum! Check out the current exhibitions at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, as you explore temple murals, inspect mummy masks, observe the ancient arts of China, and learn California mission history!

  1. Take in a show at the Mission Tiki or Rubidoux Drive-In theater! Trek just outside of Orange County for the special experience of a drive-in movie! Cheap admission and the option for a double feature, lets you get the most bang for your buck while treating your kids to an unforgettable outing.

  1. Hike the Riley Wilderness Park! With five miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, embrace the great outdoors and wander through nature. Boasting a one-acre butterfly garden, the Riley Wilderness Park offers lots of opportunities for wildlife sightings, bug searching, and fossil hunting.
