Two Itineraries for a Perfect Day in the City of Orange

Imagine a quaint college town packed with antique markets, carefully curated shops, and eclectic food options. That’s the famous Orange Circle in the City of Orange, and it’s a fabulous place to spend a Saturday or Sunday.

The best way to start your trip is with a ride on a Metrolink train, only $10 for system wide rides on weekend days. But what to do next? The OC Metrolink Weekends website has two detailed itineraries that feature some of the best of this wonderful town.

Choose the Antique Lovers Adventure and visit the many shops on Glassell Street and Chapman Avenue, with a stop for Cuban cuisine at Felix Continental Café. Or try the “Go Retro” Tour with a stop for high tea at the Paris in a Cup tearoom, more antiquing, and a visit to Watson’s Soda Fountain and Café, a town favorite that opened in 1899.

Many local restaurants and entertainment venues, including Citrus City Grille, Dave & Busters, The Pie Hole, Don Jefe Jalapenos Grill, Ruby’s Diner and Streamliner Lounge, and Watson’s Soda Fountain & Café, offer discounts with a valid Metrolink ticket.
