6 Fun Things to Do in Spring

It’s springtime, so take the opportunity to head outside and soak up all the fun activities in season for sunny California. 

Here are six sober spring ideas to get you started: 
  • Take a trip to the farmer’s market. Load up on fresh spring fruits and vegetables like apricots, artichokes, asparagus, dandelion greens, strawberries, peas and radishes. 
  • Sign up for a 5k. Running a race can be a fun and confidence-boosting experience. Plus, many races benefit charities or worthwhile causes – from disaster relief to fighting cancer or other diseases. In other words, it's the perfect opportunity to give back. 
  • Head to the beach. Tis the season to check out a surfing competition, take a leisurely stroll or just sit in the sand and soak up the scenery. Another idea: Bring a beach chair and relax with an inspiring read. 
  • Take a hike. It's wildflower season, which typically runs from mid-March through mid-May. Note: Many large-scale wildflower displays occur in the high desert, so be sure to pack sunscreen, water, snacks and proper walking or hiking shoes. And don't forget a sweatshirt or light sweater; the spring weather in the high dessert can be cool and very breezy.
  • Celebrate Earth Day. It takes place this year on April 22 and is a day devoted to soaking up your surroundings and making a bigger effort to be kind to your planet. This could include volunteering to clear litter off a road, helping out at a climate change nonprofit or simply spending some time outdoors.
  • Check out a nearby festival. While you’ll want to steer clear of beer or wine festivals, you can still venture out this season and taste some new foods, listen to music or check out some local artwork. From arts and crafts festivals to Latin food fests to Strawberry festivals, there’s some inexpensive (and even free) events abound in Orange County this spring.
