Date Night In The OC: Places & Ideas

Is that the Santa Ana Winds or is there love in the air? Either way, date night is anything but boring with this windstorm of ideas. Anaheim offers a variety of dining and entertainment options perfect for a night out on the town.


Focus on Fun

If you’re looking for activity-based date nights, skate over to the Anaheim Rinks for a romantic trip around the rink hand-in-hand with your honey. A sense of humor is always an appealing trait, so try the Improv in either Brea or Irvine for a night of stand-up.  Perhaps consider taking in a show at the South Coast Repertory, with a variety of fine dining options surrounding the Costa Mesa theater. See the latest releases on the big screen at AMC Theatres. You’ll feel quite the royal couple as you approach the castle of Medieval Times and Tournament in Buena Park. Whale watching is a seasonal date night idea, but Duffy Boat rentals out of Newport Beach are also a fun way to set sail on a great date night.

Looking for a quick getaway? Head to nearby Catalina Island for a weekend away aboard the Catalina Express. Bicycle riding, snorkeling, and seaside suppers make it a fabulous option for fun.


Fine Dining, Even Better Views

Looking for an upscale dining option with incredible views? Try Las Brisas Restaurant in Laguna Beach for a breathtaking view of the Pacific while you dine.  From the patio of the Orange County Mining Company atop the hills in Orange you can see as far as Catalina on a clear day. Look at the glistening lights below from your table at The Summit House in Fullerton while ordering a fabulous prime rib.
