Destination guide

Irvine: star of the OC

If you’re on a business trip to Irvine’s thriving tech economy or the University of California, renting a vacation home in Irvine can offer much sought-after extra space and freedom – not to mention the benefits of a private pool. Irvine is also a great vacation destination, with vibrant shopping and dining scenes and fantastic local attractions such as the Irvine Spectrum Center and the Buccaneer Cove waterpark. Added to this, an Irvine vacation rental is just a 20-minute drive from Disneyland and an even shorter drive from Orange County’s 42 miles of golden sandy coastline.

Things to do

Enjoy Irvine’s many attractions

If you’re traveling with kids, you can’t ignore the fact you’re just a 20-minute drive from Disneyland here. More local family attractions in Irvine include the bright, interactive Pretend City Children’s Museum, which includes the fantastic Imagination Playground, or a day out picking strawberries or watermelons under the Californian sunshine at Tanaka Farms fruit farm. For something a little more cultured, the Irvine Museum houses an extensive collection of Californian Impressionist art, or head to the Irvine Barclay Theater for contemporary dance, art, and theater.


Head to the beach in Irvine

The orange globe of the Great Park Balloon is probably Irvine’s most iconic sight. Take a ride in this tethered hot-air balloon, which rises to 400 feet above Orange County Great Park to enjoy great views over the OC. Although Irvine doesn’t have any beaches of its own, it’s close to some of the best beaches in Southern California – so a trip to the ocean is another must-do from your Irvine vacation rental. Corona del Mar State beach, Crystal Cove State Park, and Crescent Bay Beach are 3 easy-to-reach stretches of perfect golden sand.


A warm, mild climate in Irvine

You can enjoy pleasant temperatures year-round from your Irvine vacation rental. Late summer and fall are warm and generally dry in Irvine, with temperatures climbing into the 80s and 90s as late in the year as September and October. During the warm summer months, enjoy Movies on the Lawn in Orange County Great Park. Winters are generally warm and mild; the nearest Irvine gets to snow is on the peaks of the Santa Ana mountains 45 minutes to the east of the city.
