Top 5 Things About Old Towne From My 12-Year Old

 In Dining Out, Old Towne Orange, People Stories, Sweets

I hope you enjoy this blog written by my son, per my request, as I am currently intern-less. Put the kids to work, I say! These are all his words, I only made very minor edits, and I think he did a fantastic job. I hope you share this with your kids, enjoy!

Hello, my name is Garrett and my mom asked me to write a blog for her. She owns I❤Old Town Orange. This is my top five things in Old Town Orange in the perspective of a twelve-year-old.

#5. Ruby’s Diner. It’s a great place to eat. It has shakes which make it even better. I like to get the chocolate chip cookie dough shake but my sister likes oreo more. It has a lot of foods to choose from and it’s right next to a train station so my family likes to count how many trains will go by, by the time we leave. And we all take guesses.

#4. The circle. I like this place because it’s a great place to hang out and play games. Another thing to do there is to schedule meetups if you have a group of friends and you don’t know where to meet up. It has its own water fountain so that’s fun if you like throwing coins and watching water fly.

#3. The gelato place (Pandor Cafe). It’s a great ice cream place if you like that, and it has its fair share of other treats too. It has a large drink area where they sell bottles of soda and Shirley temples, which is a favorite of my sister.

#2. Big Red Comics. I like the comic store a lot because it has loads of comics and its own pinball machines!!! A little secret about this spot is that it has its own small arcade area in the back (which most adults don’t know about).

#1. The Orange Public Library. It’s filled with books for readers like me and has a computer section for little kids and a computer section for older kids. It has a “Teen Book” section and it has a book club. I like reading in the teen book section, and doing homework there is also good because it’s quiet and there are no siblings to annoy you while you’re working.


That was my top five places in Old Town Orange.
