suggestions for early afternoon weekday date

My GF and I will have about 1-3 hours to burn while in the Long Beach-Orange County area at about 12noon on a coming Tuesday.

Any suggestions of something we can? thanks

1. Re: suggestions for early afternoon weekday date

So where specifically are you going to be -- Long Beach or Orange County? And where in Orange County. You're talking about a large area. Will you have a car or are you relying on public transportation? Are you catching a flight? Are your timelines strict?

And what are you looking to do? Type of food?

I enjoy Seal Beach, cute main st, excellent food.

Maybe AquaLink? Ballast Point Brewery?

yes I will be mobile. I will be driving from Long Beach to Irvine so anything within the general area is something I would consider. Off the top of my head some ideas would be a lunch cruise, live musical, comedy standup, or play but obviously I'd assume those would be extremely hard to find on a weekday afternoon.

A walk on the pier and sand can be a lovely couple of hours.

Or buy a picnic at a local deli or grocery store, then rent a Duffy (small electric boat), and enjoy your picnic on the water.

You might like a gondola ride in Naples (Long Beach) http://www.gondolagetawayinc.com/ Lunch on 2nd St. Belmont Shores (Long Beach) or Seal Beach Main St. Then you can stop at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands for wildlife viewing, Huntington Beach Pier to watch the surfers and volleyball players. You can also eat there at Ruby's at the end of the pier. Follow PCH down to Newport Blvd, go north to the 55 Freeway to go on to Irvine.

You can do a harbor cruise in Newport,but no lunch on it.
