Holidays Lounge suggests visiting California this 2019
Irvine lies at the southern end of Las Angeles and is the hotspot destination of Orange County. Conveniently located just south of the famous Disneyland resort Irvine is also nearby city beaches and a wide variety of shopping destinations.
Most major L.A. freeways lead to Irvine, but frequent fliers will want to take advantage of the convenience offered by John Wayne International Airport in the heart of Irvine.
Summertime temperatures average in the mid-70s while winter temperatures rarely dip below the 50s. The temperate climate makes Irvine a top destination choice all year long.
Holidays Lounge Shopping Tips
Orange County has more shopping experiences than the average tourist could have in a week. However, this is Irvine, and most visitors come here to shop. The Irvine Spectrum Center in East Irvine is conveniently located at the intersection of I-5 and I-405, two of the main freeways in L.A.
The Spectrum offers shopping at Nordstrom, Macy’s and Target. Dining hot spots at this center include the family-friendly fun center of Dave and Buster’s and beer lover’s favorite Yard House. After a busy day of shopping and dining, catch a movie at the Edwards Irvine Spectrum where you are sure to have the option to see nearly any recently released movie.
The next stop on this shopper’s dream tour is Fashion Island. This island oasis of shopping is south of Irvine in Newport Beach. The island overlooking the ocean has world-famous fashion destinations like Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. Luxury and elegance define this shopping venue and cannot be missed. While these are just two of the more popular shopping destinations in Irvine, there are several more that are similar but offer their bit of uniqueness. Shopaholics will be in heaven in Irvine, so bring a couple of extra suitcases.
Biking, Hiking and Running Trails
The many trails around and throughout the city prove that Irvine is an active city. Whether you are out for an early morning jog or out to walk the dog, the beautiful and sunny weather beckons you to be outside.
