If you think there’s probably more to Southern California’s “OC,” or Orange County, than the fare offered up in TV shows like the infamous “Real Housewives of the OC,” you’re absolutely right. Much more. Now, thanks to a new blog The OCeanfront Blog launched by an association of four coastal cities including Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach and Dana Point, you can get beyond the drama and into the real deal. A welcomed resource indeed. With a shortage of credible info on the OC, it seems the majority of visitors still miss out on some of the area’s greatest treasures and don’t get to discover the things that make coastal Orange County so special. As a lifelong OC resident, I have often recommended unique restaurants, hidden beaches, and happening events to friendly tourists who have no idea what to do or where to go.
Thanks to the new blog, I can take a break (especially since I happen to be living in Australia at the moment), as it’s an excellent resource for visitors which covers what’s happening on the OC coast from resort and restaurant guides to seasonal deals and calendars of events. There’s also info on how to put together a beachfront wedding, plan a kid-friendly getaway, or where to find an affordable spa escape. Newest to the site is this month’s launch of Oceanfront TV , a 10-webisode series offering insider tips from locals Zetta Grich and Rachel Everett, wives of OC sports stars Bob Grich and Jim Everett, who I guarantee you’ll find much more appealing (and informative) than the other “wives.”
Now you can enjoy the 42 miles of oceanfront even more while navigating the coastline and the web. This local loves The OCeanfront as a way to keep up to date on what’s hot by the golden sands of the OC.
