If you're in Huntington Beach, do yourself a big favor and go to Normita's Surf City Tacos. You won't regret it. After we had our fill of delicious tacos and beach walking, we drove down the PCH to Laguna Beach. For some pretty incredible views of the valleys, mountains, and ocean, check out Alta Laguna Park. On a clear day, you'll be able to see all the way to Catalina Island and there are lots of hiking trails that I'd love to go back and explore!
While we were in Orange County last weekend, we visited San Juan Capistrano. The popular draw in the city is of course the Mission but it's also worth checking out the Los Rios District, which is the oldest neighborhood in California. (There are still buildings there dating back to the 18th century!). We topped the trip off with some pizza from Selma's (the Pedal to the Metal Special was so good).
On our way to Nashville in January, we stopped at the National Corvette Museum. We had passed it many times and since we were driving a Corvette this time, it seemed like it was kind of mandatory that we stopped, right? While cars aren't a huge interest of mine, I'm always up for a museum and I thought this one was set up nicely and had a lot of interesting information. You may or may not remember that there was a sinkhole in 2014 that swallowed up some very rare and iconic cars. Many of those cars were beyond repair; they now have an exhibit set up dedicated to the event and have kept the damaged cars on display. Due to a little morbid curiosity in disastrous events, I found this part of the museum to be particularly interesting.
