Irvine, California: Beaches near Family Friendly Attractions
Located about 40 miles south of Los Angeles and just 12 miles from trendy Newport Beach, Irvine ranked high on CNNMoney’s Best Places to Live in 2008 and again in 2011. It’s also one of Southern California’s most-relaxing places to visit, especially the rolling hills of Irvine Regional Park and the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary, home to great horned owls, wilson’s warblers, and other colorful birds in a natural habitat. For swimming, boating, and kayaking in the Pacific Ocean, take a short drive to Newport Harbor, a beloved small-boat marina surrounded by picturesque beaches and rocky bluffs.
One of the area’s big tourism draws, apart from its beaches, is the Disneyland Resort, about 15 miles to the north. The main park comprises eight fantasylands, including Tomorrowland, Adventureland, and Mickey’s Toontown, each with its own set of rides and characters. Housed within Irvine Regional Park (about a 20-minute drive from the hotel), the Orange County Zoo is a great way to see animals that are native to the southwest including mountain lions, turkey vultures, and surfers.
