When you think of Orange County, California sunshine and sandy beaches likely come to mind. Your instinct isn't wrong. But as Laguna Beach local and avid traveler Danielle Bauter shows us, this cluster of cities along the southern coast of The Golden State boasts many literary offerings as well.

From top-tier universities with expansive libraries to a Shakespeare by the Sea festival, to now-famous donuts in Costa Mesa, and a coffee shop with books hanging from the ceiling, Orange County has a little something for everyone.
