Every year, we put out a Summer Guide to help y'all plan your season: where to go, what to eat, which beaches to schtup on. And every year, we get plaudits—and more than a few complaints. "You didn't cover Huntington Beach enough!" "You covered H.B. too much!" "Too much Newport!" "Not enough Aliso Viejo!"
(Okay, so no one ever says that last one.)
We hear you, OC! While summers in the county are better spent near the coast, some of ustedes simply refuse to leave your hometowns. That's why, this year, we've decided to profile every city in Orange County and offer a guide of what to do there during the hot months—where to go, what to eat, which places to schtup on. From San Clemente to the canyons to Long Beach and even La Habra, behold your go-to guide! It's the classiest thing you'll ever read in this infernal rag because we hired classy models to pose around town 'cause we're classy like that. Enjoy, and who knew summers in Stanton could be so delicious?
