The young city of Irvine is the ideal planned community. Established just 45 years ago, the town was carefully designed to retain its innate beauty. The landscape embraces 58 parks, 54 miles of bicycle trails, and 5,600 acres of preserved space. Enhancing this natural paradise are many exciting attractions. Below are highlights of Irvine sites that won’t leave a hole in your wallet, brought to you by friendly and knowledgeable real estate agents in Irvine.
Improv Comedy Club
This world-famous comedy forum hosts a full calendar of shows. This upcoming weekend you can enjoy Christopher Titus, a comedian some might recognize from his short-lived (and underrated) show on Fox, “Titus,” well-known radio personality Adam Carolla, and actor Craig Robinson.
ChocXO Chocolate Factory
Chocxo offers three types of events at its Irvine location, including Make Your Own Chocolate Bark, Full Factory Tour and Chocolate Tasting, and a Chocolate Education Tour. If you’re still looking for Valentine’s ideas, consider the Make Your Own class.
You’ll concoct your signature chocolate bark in the facility’s fragrant kitchen and listen to a staff member explain the chocolate-making process from bean to bar. The workshop includes a free tour of the factory.
Orange County Great Park and Balloon Ride
The immense orange balloon at Great Park is an Orange County icon. Hovering 400 feet above the Irvine landscape, it offers enthralling, spine-tingling 40-mile views. The gondola accommodates 30 passengers. Ride availability is on a first-come, first-served basis and dependent on weather. The park also sponsors year-round special events, such as adult and child soccer, carousel rides, environment seminars, artists’ talks, Sunday farmers markets, family crafts, gardening workshops, nutrition talks, story time in the garden, summer outdoor concerts and movies, writing groups, and yoga.
Irvine Historical Museum
Irvine Ranch was formerly one of the largest private ranches in the US. This museum is dedicated to preserving the artifacts of the original home on the property. The museum houses a research library and fascinating photo collection. Exhibits portray Native Americans, the citrus industry, famous people and events, local agriculture, and Old Town Irvine. Farm equipment is on display outside the building.
