As residents of Orange County, we enjoy easy access to pristine beaches, local mountains, and plenty of natural open spaces. Shady Canyon in Irvine, for example, borders a nature preserve that is home to many indigenous animals.

Parks in the area around Shady Canyon include the James Dilley Greenbelt Preserve, Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, and Crystal Cove State Park.

And these parks in Orange County are home to a number of wild animals, including:

Coyotes are especially prevalent in the nature preserves and open areas of Orange County.

Azarian Gymnastics in Aliso Viejo is hands-down Orange County's premier gymnastics facility.

Located in Aliso Viejo, just off of the 405 or 73 freeways, Azarian Gymnastics is easy to access and a wonderful gym for all ages.

This is a great farmers market located in the parking lot of Mariners Church in Irvine. You will find me and my family here every Saturday morning.

We have a few favorite go-tos, one is Martha's Kitchen, and they make the best breakfast burritos!

The beans are homemade and delicious. I always stop and get a Menos Organic green juice as well. They squeeze the juice right on the spot. Another vendor I highly recommend is the French bakery, their croissants and pastries are to die for! There goes the diet, but it will be well worth it.
