It's a City of Trees in the City of Stars

Located in the Greater LA Area, the city of Tustin is often referred to as "The City of Trees," thanks to an urban forest comprised of almost 16,000. Tustin also offers rolling hills with sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Saddlebrook Mountains, as well as one of the most historic Old Towns in Orange County. Its close proximity to Anaheim means it's the perfect spot to book a Tustin vacation rental for any visitors eager to spend the day in Disneyland, or drive 30 minutes west and hit the coast for the perfect SoCal beach day.

Things to do

You can practically wave to Mickey and Minnie

Most of Tustin's main attractions can be found in the Old Town, including an automotive museum and a few art galleries, with lots of restaurants, bars, and cafes in between. Taste authentic Mexican food, hit up the local bowling alley, or catch a new release at one of the town's movie theaters. For travelers who are eager to explore the area a bit more, Santa Ana Zoo is just over the freeway, and Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, and Knotts Soak City are all around a 20-minute drive away.

Activities

From historic old towns to plenty of playgrounds

Orange County is packed with attractions, but you hardly need to leave Tustin to find some fun. Go shopping or grab dinner at one of the luxury outdoor retail destinations, or stroll through the historic old town, where you'll find plenty of museums and galleries. Hit up the local boutique scene, or explore the restaurants, featuring everything from juice bars to sushi. Take the kids to a playground, or plan a picnic in one of Tustin's parks. Festivals pop up year-round, and a weekly farmer's market is the perfect place to pick up wares for your Tustin vacation rental.

Weather

Bright, bright, sunshiney days, all year long

Like much of Southern California, Tustin's weather is one of its biggest draws. While locals may get excited when they see clouds in the distance, visitors will love the moderate temps all year long. It rarely drops below 45 in winter, while summer maxes out in the high 80s, with little to no rain in between. Technically January and February are the rainier months, but it's unlikely it'll mess with your itinerary too much. Nights do tend to cool down, but we're sure your Tustin vacation rental will come stocked with an extra light blanket, should you need it.

Natural features

I can see all the way to the Pacific from here!

Given its descriptive nickname, The City of Trees and its urban forest shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Rolling hills lead up to panoramic views of the Greater LA area, and even look out toward the Pacific coastline. You might catch a glimpse of some local wildlife scurrying about -- mainly lizards and squirrels -- although mountain lions, coyotes, and rattlesnakes have been spotted, too. Your safest bet is to just head to the neighboring town and pay a visit to the local zoo.
