Orange County

 Orange County families have so much at their fingertips, they forget Los Angeles is there most weeks. They can leave Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm for the tourists, as they choose between home turf outings ranging from the Discovery Science Center, to the Great Park Balloon (that's a bucket list item), to San Juan Capistrano - to barely touch the tip of the Orange iceberg. And if we haven't mentioned Orange County's beach communities, that's just because it would make Los Angelenos jealous.

All this is without giving up the great selection of camps, classes, parks, and museums that life in SoCal offers. Orange you glad?
