On a whim, I decided to reach out to a friend from college who lived in Orange County California to see if we could get together while I was there for another friend’s wedding.
She lives in Irvine. I was flying into Burbank. She warned me that this was potentially two hours of driving each way. I was still game. And honestly, it wasn’t that bad because I was listening to a good book on Audible.
When I arrived, she took over the driving and she showed me Crystal Cove State Park we we explored the beach, and had lunch. We went to the Shake Shake and I was over the moon to find out that they have gluten-free buns and fries. So good!
There is almost nothing that tastes as good as burgers, shakes, and fries at the beach. Especially a beach this pretty.
If You Go:
- Wear sunscreen even if it’s cloudy.
- Explore the tide pools and look for crabs. They are delightful!
