Fall is here! Orange and red leaves, goblins, ghouls and Halloween candy are just a few things that come to mind when this season hits us. You know what comes to my mind every October? German beer and yodeling at Oktoberfest at The Phoenix Club Anaheim! So put on your German Oktoberfest outfits and bring your stein for a fun evening!

We recently enjoyed a San Diego Gaslamp Getaway. It’s our go-to weekend staycay spot! We stayed at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter, which is conveniently located next to the Westfield Horton Plaza Shopping Center. A hotel next to a mall? This made our teenager so happy! I love that San Diego is less than a 2 hour drive away from our home in Irvine. Just a quick road trip and we’re in a totally different and fun place.
Looking for great venues to see Santa Claus in Orange County? Here is our list for favorite Santa visits in the OC. We did not extensively list malls, since you probably already have your favorite. So we listed our 2 favorite mall Santas, and instead, are sharing sites we also just love to visit that happen to have awesome Santas. We prefer going to these beautiful settings and finishing our visits with some adult holiday cheer at the bar!
The Lido Theater in Newport Beach elicits charm and class. Especially during the holidays. Let’s get this holiday started! All the malls are decked out, lights are going up around the neighborhood, and holiday music is playing on KOST. And really, we need every single day that we can get to squeeze in all the fun activities around town and beyond! Between our two families, we have so many holiday traditions, new and old, we’re lucky we’re not starting up in June!
