Irvine is one of the largest and newest cities in Orange County, aka the sprawling suburbia between San Diego and Los Angeles. It’s a great community, and the proof is in the fact that it’s also one of the fastest-growing cities in the area. Plus, it’s centrally located between Southern California’s largest metropolitan areas, beaches, mountains and desert. The hardest part about booking Irvine holiday packages will be trying to see and do it all!
Things to Do in Irvine
OK, so what do you do first? Drop your bags in your Irvine accommodation and get a move on. Get in a few rounds of golf at the dozen or so courses throughout the area. Maybe a relaxing hike around William R. Mason Regional Park or a few waves at Crystal Cove State Beach will help get your creative juices flowing?
If not, you might need a little brain food first. Grab some ramen or sushi at the Diamond Jamboree Asian shopping centre or hit one of the many restaurants at Irvine Spectrum. And while you’re there you can get a little shopping done.
At this point, you might want a nap. After all, there really are some super comfortable Irvine hotels. But stay strong. You still have a lot to see, and you need to plan your itinerary! Keep yourself awake by watching UC Irvine Anteater athletic events at Bren Events Center, a performance at the Irvine Barclay Theater or a headliner concert at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre.
Okay. We have the perfect plan for your trip. Just do all the stuff above.
Getting To & Around Irvine
Irvine is a master-planned community, which means it’s super easy to get around. Right outside the city is John Wayne Airport (SNA), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is just 70 km away. Interstates 405 and 5 straddle Irvine and meet up just outside The Spectrum. To get from the hotels in Irvine to other spots on your itinerary, rent your own wheels from Wotif, or use the bus.
And don’t worry if you can’t get Irvine’s bigger, more famous neighbour out of your mind. Book Los Angeles accommodation on Wotif and make it all part of a Southern California tour. With all the great discounts on Wotif, it’s easy to plan your whole trip and save!
