The Montage Resort and Spa - Things to Do in Orange County 40

Enjoy the Ultimate Resort Experience in Orange County – Montage Resort & Spa

As residents or visitors of Orange County, we are blessed with many of the beautiful places that OC has to offer. In the City of Laguna Beach, you can go visit a world class resort, the Montage Resort and Spa. The Montage is one of the up-and-coming hotel resorts in Orange County and even in the world!

The Montage is located off Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, but it is a bit hard to find because they try to be secluded from everything.

You don’t have to be a hotel guest to visit the Montage Resort. You can visit the resort to eat at their highly popular restaurants or enjoy a relaxing day at their spa facility. You can also visit the Montage to enjoy some of their unique cocktails in the lounge area. Or you can visit the resort simply because it’s such a beautiful place.

The Montage has three critically acclaimed restaurants, with “Studio” being one of my personal favorites. “Studio” is like a little beach house facing the ocean where you can enjoy great food that some of the top chefs in Orange County has prepared for you. It is highly recommended for that special day with that special person!

There is a beautiful walkway between the hotel and the beach where you can enjoy one of the best walks in Orange County. You’ll see the Pacific Ocean right in front of you with spectacular views of the cliff and rocks in the area. It’s one of those perfect walks you can have on a perfect day.

The pool is open for hotel guests only, and it offers a private bungalow where you can relax with friends and family.

Spa Montage is also a very popular destination for the locals and visitors that frequent the Montage. Ocean themed treatments like the water therapy and the hydro therapy are very popular here. They also offer group therapy for parties of up to six people as well as therapy for couples. It is one of the ultimate spas in Orange County today.

If you feel like enjoy a surreal day filled with beautiful things and great pleasures, Montage Resort & Spa is the place to be!

The Batting Cages @ Boomer's - Things to Do in Orange County 40

Stressed Out?? Go Visit a Batting Cage to Smack Around a Softball!

In Orange County, you’ll find batting cages around town. One of my personal favorites when it comes to batting cages is the one at Boomers. The place has a nice casual atmosphere, and you can go there with friends, family, or even solo.

Once you arrive, the first thing you’ll need to do is to get your helmet and bat at the counter. You’ll need to pick if you’re going to swing at a softball or baseball since they have different bats for them. Just let the Boomer’s guy know what you want, and they’ll let you borrow it free of charge. You are also welcomed to bring in your own personal gear if you have one.

After you get your gear, you’ll then need to exchange your money into Boomer’s tokens to go swinging. At the Fountain Valley Boomer’s, it cost 2 tokens ($2) for 30 pitches. Each location has different rates, but be willing to spend a few bucks to get rid of your stress! :)

At Boomer’s, you’ll need to choose how fast you want your pitches to be. You can choose from “Very Fast,” “Fast,” “Medium,” or “Slow” for a baseball. The “Very Fast” pitches are about 70mph, so they are actually very fast indeed. For softball, you’ll need to chose between the slow pitch or the fast pitch.

Once you decide what cage to challenge yourself on, put your helmet on, insert a couple tokens, and you’re ready to go swinging!

Aside from all the people trying to relieve their stress at the batting cages, you’ll frequently see little leaguers here practicing their swings. You’ll be amazed how good some of these kids are.

Boomer’s also has Go Karts, miniature golf, arcade, and a restaurant area. They are great for kids, dates, and at times, when you’re stressed to just go and have fun. Go visit your nearest Boomer’s today to have some fun!
