What to Do With Your Extra Hour of Sunlight
Your mom was right: go outside and get some sun.
Orange County is sunny most of the year, but that doesn’t mean we don’t notice when the sun sets way too early and we’re sitting in the dark at 5 P.M.
While we might be losing an hour of sleep on March 15th, we’re also gaining more sunlight. Isn’t that what living in California is all about? If you’re at a loss, here’s what to do with all that shine.
If You’re in Lake Forest
Hike the Red Rock Canyon trail at Whiting Ranch – the trail is way easier when it isn’t all muddy or dark.
If You’re in Newport Beach
Head to the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve and learn what the heck a salt marsh is.
If You’re in Huntington Beach
Grab a burrito at Secret Spot and eat it by the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve while enjoying the view.
If You’re in Irvine
Grab your friends and bike or hike Bommer Canyon.
If You’re in Laguna Beach
Check out the tide pools at Crystal Cove.
If You’re in Santa Ana
Plan a picnic at Carl Thornton Park (and watch out for hungry ducks).
If You’re in Fullerton
Plan a date at the Fullerton Arboretum.
If You’re in Laguna Niguel
Hike the “Car Wreck” trail at Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, because it’s way less creepy in the sunlight.
If You’re in Dana Point
Make like a tourist and go dolphin and whale watching.
If You’re in San Juan Capistrano
Hike the Bell Canyon trail in Casper’s Wilderness Park.
What do you plan on doing with your extra hour of sunlight?
