This Monday marks Presidents Day! That means schools are out of session and there’s no better place to be than Old Towne Orange. Whenever the Chapman University students have the day off, the streets are filled with shining smiles and spirits are extra high. As the long weekend quickly approaches, you may be looking for some fun and relaxing ways to spend it with friends and family. If you like to stay local on your days of leisure then we discovered some great ideas you can do in your own backyard!
During this time of year, we often don’t find the opportunity to enjoy a warm breakfast with family and friends. After sleeping in a little longer, head over to your favorite brunch spot or try a new location! The usual suspects have been posting many mouth watering bites on social media lately. Mead's Green Door Cafe snapped a shot of their famous Sweet Potato Hash Bowl, and it’s hard to believe that it’s this healthy. Choose to scramble it with fresh eggs, tofu or pack it with your favorite filling. We can’t forget to mention that any of their bowls can be wrapped into an epic breakfast burrito and vise versa!
We love seeing the locals take full advantage of Plaza Park. Everyday children are playing,
friends are chatting around the fountain, and artists are creating beautiful portraits of our city. Having a picnic in the center of town is a pleasurably unique and inexpensive way to spend your day off. If you don’t feel like assembling your own basket, Citrus City Grille has the perfect solution! Customize their Lunch Box Special for each member of the family. Select from sandwiches wraps, salads and more for various options, certain to meet everyone’s needs. If you do have children, this is the perfect opportunity to take a moment to educate the little ones with history about this historical holiday.
Presidents Day is known special discount pricing, and we can’t wait for the treasure hunting to begin! For many years the boutiques, specialty shops and antique stores in Old Towne Orange have celebrated the holiday with fabulous deals and steals. Grab the gals and make an entire afternoon of it. Sip on mimosas and shop until you drop with sidewalk sales and specials. Stay posted, as we’ll keep you updated with the local Presidents Day bargains!
If you really want to ensure a relaxing weekend, then we’ve thought of the perfect plan. It’s finally time to take that yoga class that’s been relaxing in child's pose in the back of your mind. Even if you’re no yogi, Sunspark Yoga will welcome you with open arms. Despite your experience or skill level they will guide you through any of their Yoga Classes, Mat Pilates and Meditation Sessions held throughout the day. If you’ve been curious to try it, then drop in and take a single class for only $18.00 ($15.00 for students!) You will find they have various packages to choose from to perfectly fit your lifestyle!
Whether you’re planning on spending the weekend with family, friends, or by yourself - do something you truly enjoy! Tag us on our social media of all the OTO holiday fun!
