Spring is a very popular season for two reasons, the first being spring cleaning, the second being March Madness. In between basketball games and cleaning the garage, you can enjoy all the activities Orange County has to offer during this time of year. Talk a walk and enjoy the sight of beautiful flowers blooming everywhere or catch a show inside or out. No matter what you’re into, Orange County has something for everyone during spring.
The one thing not allowed in Orange County during spring is boredom with all of these fun things to do in the area.
