Keep Having Fun This Summer with Our List of Free Things To Do In Orange County
There’s no place quite like Orange County in the summertime. With a seemingly endless supply of wonderful things to do, there are still plenty of ways to have fun without barely making a dent in your budget. Here's a few of our favorite free things to do in Orange County to get you started.
Free Bowling and Movies
Everyone loves to go bowling - so if you want to spend some time indoors, find a lane, lace up some shoes and spend a couple of fun hours together. Kids bowl free at many Orange County bowling alleys, but if you're family is in the mood for sitting down and kicking back, there are lots of free movie events happening throughout the summer.
The OC is home to a few unique and interactive zoos, including the Santa Ana Zoo, which offers free parking and half-price admission after 2 p.m, and the Orange County Zoo, which is just $2.00 for entrance into the park.
Concerts in the Park
Summer in Orange County wouldn’t be complete without free concerts in the park. Grab a blanket, close your eyes and listen to your favorite tribute band or invite some friends over and enjoy an evening of great music under the stars.
Beaches, Parks & Splash Pads
We sometimes forget about them, but many Orange County beaches are free, including Huntington Beach which was just voted best California Beach for 2018. Pack a picnic, explore the coast, and find the perfect spot to spend the afternoon. Towards the end of August, the beaches are much less crowded, making for an even more relaxing day out for everyone.
For a day of fun and exploring, why not check out our scenic parks and hiking trails or head out in search of the nearest splash pad.
These are just a few of the free things that are happening in and around Orange County. You can also take advantage of Kids Eat Free menus at local restaurants, or bring the fun closer to home with local craft fairs, farmers markets and all sorts of interesting community events.
Conveniently located in the middle of all the fun, the Marriott Suites Anaheim is the perfect host for your summer getaway. Book your stay and start making memories.
