Beyond the Cover #TravelTuesday: Orange County, California
Let’s talk about a potential trip you might want to plan for summer 2017. The OC isn’t just a TV show- it’s possibly one of the most action-packed family trips you can find in the U.S. From Texas, you can fly into John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, and spend some time rambling around OC’s cool towns (think Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, etc.). Come along on our journey. (Use the right arrow button on each photo to scroll through and take note of the captions below.)
