El Moro canyon is a good place for a hike. I run those trails on the weekend from the top of pelican hill down to the beach. Beautiful views, very secluded, and no noise from cars once you get away from the 73.

Also, if you're into climbing, or want to get into it, check out Rockreation in Costa Mesa. Good if your new or old to the sport. They change up the problems frequently to keep it interesting.

I have never actually hiked there, I should check it out sometime. When I hike I usually go a bit farther inland around the trabuco canyon area. There are some beautiful hikes all over there.

Downtown Fullerton is a fun place to walk, drink & eat on the weekends.

You could always copy/paste into the original posting using your edit tab, but it is easier just to let it flow in the thread.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Orange County Fairgrounds on weekends. Great times walking around buying fresh veggies, fair type food, furniture, art, etc.

Hear, hear! The freaking developers that run this county ruin everything they get their greedy hands on.

Like Havasu said, the Orange County Marketplace at the fairgrounds is a good way to kill a weekend afternoon (and there's always other stuff going on there, too). There's also a great farmer's market culture developing, serviced by live music and EXCELLENT food trucks, examples in several cities. No one's mentioned the obvious yet: THE BEACH. Hiking in South County's been mentioned. I'll add in the Santa Ana river trail. Most of it's just concrete, but the last few miles before the ocean are awesome (along with the nature preserve and Fairview Park) and, at the other end, the last few miles before crossing the SB county line are cool, too.
