Nestled in between Los Angeles and San Diego, the Orange County Coast is best known for its stretch of cities that run along the scenic Southern California shoreline. With 40-plus miles to lay your towel in the sand, life here is centered around the beach.
Some of the best known cities that make up the Orange County Coast include Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente. Along with the expected beach activities like surfing, swimming and soaking up the sun, the Orange County Coast has numerous beach trails for avid hikers. Piers dot the coast and downtown main streets loaded with shopping and restaurants are typically only steps from the sand.
