Mar 13, 2020

Checking in to flight home from Lihue was a bit time-consuming and chaotic. We had to remind ourselves this is a regional airport, not LAX. Other than that, experience was pleasant, and we were happy to fly 'the only airlines that still serves complimentary food and beverages'.

Why You Should Fly to Orange County

Much more laid back and relaxed than its neighbor, Los Angeles, you’re far more likely to see surfers than celebrities in the OC. Disneyland is perhaps the most popular attraction but its beach communities and urban cool also have huge appeal.

 

When to Book Flights to Orange County

The best time to visit for endless sunny days on the beach is between May and October, with August and September being the real high season. Although, this being Southern California, things are rarely too cold for a day on the coast.

However, it also gets very busy at this time, especially at the major attractions. To avoid the crowds and save money on both flights and accommodation, then the last half of November and into December are the quietest, providing you’re not traveling over Thanksgiving weekend.

US Departures to Orange County

There are available cheap flights to Orange County from departure points across the US.

These include:

 

Main Airports in Orange County

John Wayne Airport, named after the legendary movie actor who lived at Newport Beach, is the largest airport in the Orange County area. It is located just to the south of Santa Ana and serves around 4.5 million passengers a year. The airport is served by the Orange County Transportation Authority and there are onsite car rental facilities.

Other airports that are convenient for travel to Orange County include Long Beach, which is around 45 minutes away by car depending on the traffic. Los Angeles International, known as LAX, is around 30 miles away but travel to Orange County can be lengthy, especially in rush hour.

 

Which Airlines Fly to Orange County?

A choice of domestic carriers offers bargain flights to Orange County from airports across the US, including:

  • United Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Delta
  • Southwest
  • Frontier

 

How to Get to and Around Orange County

As with much of LA and the surrounding area, the motor car is king. A vast and comprehensive road network connects the urban area making car travel the most convenient option. There are car rental agencies in all the major airports as well as scattered around the city and suburban areas.

If you want to go without a car, it is still possible but may take a little more planning. From the airport, you’ll probably need to take a taxi to your accommodation. This can be expensive but ride sharing options are available to the larger towns such as Newport Beach. Buses connect the more than 30 cities that make up the Orange County area but going can be slow and it is mostly only major roads that are served.

 

What Are the Must-sees in Orange County?

The main tourist attraction in the OC is without doubt Disneyland. Visit Mickey Mouse and his friends at the colossal park in Anaheim and explore more of the Magic Kingdom. However, if busy theme parks are not your thing then there are plenty of more serene options available around the region. Miles of sandy beach are bathed in sunshine for much of the year and surfing conditions are great. Visit the beach town communities like Newport Beach or go hiking in Crystal Cove State Park.

For more outdoor fun, Irvine has hundreds of miles of dedicated bike paths and Orange County Great Park is a former Marine base transformed into more than a thousand acres of outdoor enjoyment.


Tips for Traveling in Orange County

Orange County is located in the Pacific Time zone, so times can change during Daylight Savings periods. Cash is no longer accepted on the toll roads that run through the OC, so you will need to set up an automatic payment option if renting a car.
