August in Orange County: Sober Activities

Orange County is one of the most gorgeous landscapes ever and we’re lucky enough to be in the midst of it. It’s easy to get into the mindset that we can’t go out and have an amazing time without substances. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Here are a few activities to do in August in Orange County, California.

The Bolsa Chica Wetlands

Laguna Beach Art Galleries

If you’re feeling like you want a dose of art, you don’t have to go all the way to LA. You can head over to the myriad galleries in Laguna Beach and get some local flavor. There are arts festivals, galleries, and artist studios that are open to the public. Wander the beautiful streets and take in the art.
