    LOS ALAMITOS - Beyond the horsies

    There are two Los Als: the neat rows of ticky-tacky houses and chain restaurants in horrid shopping plazas, and its kitschy, campy and dive-y bastard child. Stick with the latter, beginning at The Starting Gate (5052 Katella Ave., 562-598-8957; www....

    PLACENTIA - Something in nothing

    Next to Aliso Viejo, no OC city is more forgotten than Placentia. It's a town usually more remembered for what it isn't (that is, it's not Fullerton or Brea or Yorba Linda or even La Habra) and for breeding shady council members and politicians the ...

    RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Sunnin' by the lake

    Okay, we admit it: we know next to nothing about Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM). We know it's the city that serves as a buffer zone between exclusive gated communities and the rest of us heathens, that its Catholic high school was created by a bona fi...

    NEWPORT BEACH - Wedge yourself

    The next best thing to frolicking on the beach is the anticipation just before you touch a toe to hot sand. One inlander recalls trips as a youth with his parents to the beach, and the giddiness that came with each backseat, split-second glimpse of ...

    SAN CLEMENTE - Surf, then surf some more

    Hard-coded into the blood of every Orange Countian, even those who don't surf, is the knowledge that the best surfing happens in the morning, just as the onshore wind turns and blows the ever-present marine layer out to sea. Early, early in the morn...
