Things to do in Orange County?

I'm probably going to Orange County in 2 weeks for a weekend with my girlfriend and her sisters. Could someone give me some recommendations of things to do? My girlfriend sisters are all young (15-21 years old).

Thanks.

The classic attraction, Disneyland, is in the northern part of Orange County (Anaheim).

There's also numerous shopping centers. Newport Beach is also nice.

You're not that far from LA and could do the Hollywood attractions. Just remember that the traffic sucks around the LA/Orange County areas.

The drive down to San Diego isn't that long from Orange County either.

Newport Beach is a great place to be at night in Orange County.

With the sisters being that young, it seems you might be getting Disneyfied with Disneyland and the California Adventure. Knotts Berry Farm is up the road too.

If you can make the Orange County Fair, there is a lot going on. http://www.ocfair.com/2001/

Also a boat or helicopter trip to Catalina Island would be a good idea. And I'm sure the girls would like to hang out with the surfer dudes at any of the OC Beaches.

San Diego is only 2-3 hours drive away with the Zoo, Seaworld and even Tijuana, Mexico.

There is also a Legoland on the road to San Diego.
