Best Downtown (2009)

Old Towne Orange

It might be a repeat-repeat-repeat winner, but this is truly the only downtown in Orange County that is both un-snoozy and douchebag-free. The Orange Circle boasts an adorable, quaint setting—so adorable, quaint and Americana-y that even That Thing You Do!, with its picture-perfect 1960s time period, was filmed here—and offers everything from indoor antique malls, cute old people, an old-fashioned diner, a tearoom and a range of delish restaurants.
