Orange County has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From Seal Beach to the San Diego county line you have whatever you want. Piers, shopping, restaurants, the world famous Wedge, endless sandy beaches, surfing, people watching and best of all fantastic year around weather!

Beaches and shopping around Huntington Beach are awesome. The dog beach in particular is a well kept, excellent place to take your pet for play with other dogs and their owners.

Beautiful Coast line. Love to see the dolphins. Always changing not matter how many times I have driven it. Lots to see and do all the way to San Diego. Traffic can be bad on summer weekends. Go early and stay late. Hate places that block the view.

Nicest stretch was from Huntington Beach up into Laguna. Nice drive with plenty of options to see beaches, shop or eat along the coast.

If you are looking for gorgeous sunny beaches, the drive along the Orange County Beaches is so nice. I usually start it a bit further north; my drive is Long Beach to Dana Point or vice versa. There is so much to see and do along the way. Some things we have enjoyed: 1) Long Beach - Queen Mary, aquarium... More

Amazing views along the OC Coast. Take your time and drive and stop along the way. Try to go during mid-day/non-rush hour.
