Orange County Zoo
Named on TripAdvisor as the #2 thing to do in Orange County this zoo makes the most of its 8 acres. Unlike the larger zoos, this park focuses on flora and fauna which are native to the Southwest. It is owned and operated by Orange County and is open daily from 10 AM to 3:30 PM with slightly more time on the weekends. Admission is only $2 - making it one of the best values in the OC for a family outing!
