Read on to find out about the unique experiences you can enjoy when you live in one of our Southern California neighborhoods!

Orange County

Sugar Buzz
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love spending time at Sugar Buzz in Anaheim Hills. Home to the magical Unicorn Hot Chocolate that went viral a few years back, this shop is full of delicious treats and colorful decor. With so many things on the menu, including shakes, cakes, and lattes, you might just find yourself ordering one of everything.

Irvine Spectrum Center
One of the most popular destinations in Orange County is the Irvine Spectrum Center. At this outdoor mall, you’ll find countless shopping options that will appeal to every walk of life, whether you prefer Barnes & Noble or Nordstrom. During the holidays, the center is filled with seasonal spirit thanks to a towering Christmas tree, ice-skating rink, and even a lit-up Ferris wheel! A place to find lots of gifts for your loved ones and for yourself, one thing is certain—you won’t go home empty-handed.

Los Angeles

Redondo Beach Pier
The historical Redondo Beach Pier is the perfect spot to enjoy a day or night out. Breathe in the fresh air, find the perfect souvenir in one of many shops, and enjoy a delicious seafood delicacy as you feel the salty air against your skin. Don’t forget to frequent the pier during the summer for free community events and even concerts that will have you dancing all night long!

Hollywood Pantages Theater
In Los Angeles, there’re so many ways to have a new adventure. We recommend taking in a show at the Hollywood Pantages Theater. Here, you can see the best of Broadway—like The Lion King and The Book of Mormon—without having to hop on a plane to New York City! Every season brings something new to the theater. Regardless of whether you buy a single ticket or a season package, you’re in for an exciting time.

Ventura County

Made West Brewing Company
The MadeWest Brewing Company is a great spot to embrace the spirit of Ventura. The owners are native to the city, and as such, are dedicated to honoring Ventura and everyone who calls it home. Their community tasting room and a wide variety of independent craft beers help people bring people together, and experience both good conversation and delicious drinks!

Majestic Ventura Theater
Treat yourself to an unrivaled experience at The Majestic Ventura Theater. One of the finest venues in Southern California, this theater is home to artists of all genres of music. Whether you’re into jazz or classic rock, there’s always something to enjoy. In fact, every time you look at the calendar, you’ll probably find another band that you just have to see live!

Inland Empire

Ontario Museum of History & Art
Celebrating the history and cultural heritage of Ontario and the surrounding areas, the Ontario Museum of History & Art is a great place to spend your day. Take the time to admire the exhibits, dive into educational events, and become inspired by the creativity all around you. Don’t forget to stay up-to-date on upcoming exhibitions and calls for entries. These amazing opportunities encourage you to show off your skills and become part of the rich history of your city!
