We attended the "open house" for the performance arts center and have attended some shows. There is not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are fabulous!! We attend many theaters/performance arts centers and this is the best of them! Tickets are reasonable; we just wish they offered a bigger variety of shows. It is in a convenient... More

Awesome facility for small events - smaller rooms for meetings and breakout sessions. Also large areas to accommodate very large crowds.

Batrooms and eating area clean and well lite. If you have the time go out and look at the great bay views. One of the fewspots in OC that do... More

Right on the main drag with its back to the bay, this is large, welcoming convention center. There's plenty of parking and many rooms and halls for all kinds of events. In off season, the event has to make arrangements for the snack bar to be open; otherwise, you have to walk several blocks to find something open. The boardwalk... More

nicely built facility and has alot of different meeting/conference space to accommodate most activities. Ours was a music even however, and the cavernous main hall did not really suit the bill for acoustic reasons. Quite a large hall and I wasnt sure if the area would ever host something as large as would fill this hall since the region is... More

Excellent parking and location. We have come for coin show and mineral and gem show, as well as the fireman's expo during convention. This is a great place with a very good layout and location.

This was a beautiful convention hall. Has a boardwalk right out back to watch the bay. Went here for a car show. Roomy and lots of parking out front.

Nice center, but in a strangely barren-seeming location. Facility itself was beautiful, but BEWARE, they host VERY disparate events. Like a SEA GLASS festival with a JEEP festival? Kind of weird.
