Laguna Art Museum - Things to Do in Orange County 73

Ever feel a bit artistic with the need to want to be creative? Orange County's art scene is most prominent in Laguna Beach. There, you'll find all kinds of galleries that you can visit to get inspired. And if the art itself is not enough, just visit the beach right by to get some inspiration from the West Coast's best beaches.

Also in Laguna Beach is a little museum called the Laguna Art Museum. It's not a huge museum. You can probably look through the entire museum in about 30 minutes if you rush it.

Oftentimes, the Laguna Art Museum showcases art created by local artists in Orange County. When I visited, they had the "Art Shack" exhibition. It showcased little shacks that were artistically created. I personally loved the exhibition.

The cool thing about the Laguna Art Museum is that it changes around its exhibitions pretty often, thereby allowing you to enjoy all sorts of art. If you're a local, it maybe a place where you may want to consider getting an annual membership so that you can stop by every so often to check out their new exhibitions. It'll also give you a reason to visit Laguna Beach.

I'm not sure if this is a common thing lately, but the Laguna Art Museum had an iPhone and iPod Touch App where you can download to get a more detailed explanation of the exhibition going on. I didn't try it out, but seemed like something pretty cool thing to be able to try.

Well, next time you feel like seeing some art to get inspired in OC, I recommend the Laguna Art Museum.

Check Out a Five Guys Burger - Things to Do in Orange County

Heard of Five Guys Burger? Some people call it the In-N-Out of the East Coast.

Recently, the Five Guys Burger has been setting up shop in Orange County. And as a guy that loves reasonably priced, tasty burgers, this was a "must" to go check out.

The menu at Five Guys Burger consists mostly of Burgers and Hot Dogs. But since you're here, why go anything else then a burger?

The cool thing here: a regular burger comes with two patties of meat. So basically, you get a double cheeseburger for ordering a regular cheeseburger. If you're on a diet, go with the "little" burger which only has one beef patty. I think for anybody trying out Five Guys for the first time, they should go with a "Regular" burger.

Prices for the burgers were: $4.49 for a Regular burger, and $3.49 for a Little burger. Check out their website or call the local store for the latest prices.

Another cool thing at a Five Guys Burger is that you can pick and choose from all the toppings available. And regardless of how much of it you order, they are all free. When you want all the toppings on your burger, just say, "All the Way."

Of course, I went "All the Way."

Here are the toppings available at Five Guys Burger:

Mayo, Relish, Onions, Lettuce, Pickles, Tomatoes, Grilled Onions, Grilled Mushrooms, Ketchup, Mustard, Jalapeno Peppers, Green Peppers, A-1 Sauce, BBQ Sauce, Hot Sauce.

Compared to In-N-Out, you'll definitely be pretty satisfied in terms of amount of food that they serve you. It's a lot of meat and toppings on a burger, and overall it's bigger than an In-N-Out burger.

I enjoyed a Five Guys Burger a lot.

Hope you go out and try out a Five Guys Burger in OC to figure out which burger you like more.
