    Nestled up against the beautiful west coastline, it's tough to stay away from the OC's wonderful world of water. But why even try? With a host of Orange County activities ready and waiting to set sail, sweep you off your feet, and make some waves — these Orange County aquatic adventures are not to be missed! Go whale watching, reel in some fish, delight in delicious cuisine aboard a cruise, try surfing, and more!

    And speaking of flying — there are plenty of adventurous things to do in Orange County by air and land, too! Learn to pilot a plane or helicopter; go ziplining or bungee jumping; give indoor skydiving a try; or enjoy a breathtaking aerial tour of LA, Hollywood, and the surrounding scenery!

    Does the mere thought of H2O and air outings make your heart race with excitement? Then buckle up for this big news! Among the many unrivaled things to do in Orange County is an array of top-notch driving experiences, that really put the pedal to the metal!

    Hop behind the wheel of a real Indy or stock car to challenge the Auto Club Speedway's two miles of rubber-burnin' asphalt for yourself! Kick the big day off with a classroom training session, learning the ins and outs of professional racing — driving lines, communication systems, car mechanics, track geography, safety protocol, and more. Suit up in real driving gear, then head to pit road for a demo lap in a crew vehicle, followed by revving your very own engine to let loose, lap after lap!
