We are living in strange times. Last year, the end of summer celebrations was all over the county. You could attend a festival in Dana Point on a Saturday and then head up to Huntington Beach for another festival on Sunday. We may not be able to go back to that anytime soon but that does not mean we have to sit at home and do nothing. There are still many things to do in Orange County September 2020 that you and the family can enjoy.
The best things to do in Orange County September 2020 will help keep you entertained and keep you busy in safe and healthy ways.
Whale Watching Newport Beach | All September Long
Now is the best time to keep your eyes on the oceans. You may find yourself looking right at one of the most beautiful creatures in the ocean. Whale watching season is here and you can still head out onto the water to see what you can find. In fact, there are whale watching tours that depart from Newport Beach daily. The cruises will be following social distancing guidelines and departing with fewer passengers. However, that also means that each tour fills up quickly. Be sure to reserve your spot on a cruise before whale season leaves us again.
Newport Beach Restaurant Month | All September Long
Restaurant week is back but this time it is in Newport Beach for the month of September.

Rotary Club’s the Sandlot Drive-In | September 11
There is nothing like watching a movie with family and friends. However, times have made going to the movie theater a bit difficult. Luckily, we have had an alternative to the theater for decades, the drive-in. The Rotary Club in Orange is hosting a drive-in movie event on September 11th. The movie will be The Sandlot. Tickets will be $40 per car and will go towards supporting the Rotary Club of Orange. The movie starts at 8 pm but you may want to arrive a bit early to get a good spot.
