    ALISO VIEJO - South County with a reality check

    If we're using our trusty Ron Burgundy Spanish translator, the name Aliso Viejo roughly means "Suburbs On Xanax." At least that's what most of us think when we picture this peaceful, planned community. Truth is, this is not a city for sleepers. Like...

    ANAHEIM - House of More Than the Mouse

    As OC's largest city, Anaheim is full of dense urban sprawl, except for the hills and a little patch called Anaheim Coves (962 S. Rio Vista). Open since 2011, the 1.5-mile trail is an easy way to get a healthy start to the lazy days of summer. With ...

    BREA - Creepy masturbation statues

    Brea gets a bad rap for being a drab city full of gabachos, and although there is some truth to that, compared to what's going on in neighboring cities such as Yorba Linda, Placentia and Diamond Bored--things in Brea are lookin' pretty good! The cit...

    BUENA PARK - Center of breakfast burritos

    Construction on Buena Park's mega-development "The Source" won't be ready by summer, but an upscale shopping center ain't where it's at for the so-called "Center of the Southland." Planning an all-day adventure in the city isn't impossible, but carr...

    CANYON COUNTRY - Modjeska, Silverado and Trabuco: Come on up!

    Summer is synonymous with getting back to the great outdoors, but we live in Southern California, where that happens every day. But the season also makes the last of our wilderness up in the mountains some of the least desirable places to visit, as ...

    COSTA MESA - Dig that damn marina already

    Until the city finally realizes its longtime marina dreams by digging out the gully at the far west end of 19th Street and filling it with water (removing the wildlife and homeless first, of course), Costa Mesa will have to make do with those few, u...

    DANA POINT - Not completely Wyland-ed yet

    It's easy to dismiss Dana Point as a city where OC's elite go to look at the yachts they never use. If you're like us Wildlings north of the Wall, attempts at culture in South County come across reminiscent of a lengthy coma. Of course, we jest; a...

    FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Bowling and buzz food

    You can tell a lot about a city by its slogan. That Fountain Valley calls itself "A Nice Place to Live" says it didn't try very hard. But locals are well-aware of the treasures that belie this tiny gem. One of the most obvious is Mile Square Park ...

    LA HABRA - Corn never grew here

    Other than the great dive bar that is Cliff's Hideaway (5442 Orangethorpe Ave., 714-521-7883), there is nothing to do in OC's tiniest city during the summer. Head over to Cypress or--if you're feeling bold--Los Alamitos.
