#OCLocal Contest

52 Things Every Local Must Do

When it comes to picking things to do in Orange County, we have different priorities than out-of-towners. Sure, we love Disneyland, but we’ve been there so many times. So stash that tourist guidebook! In our September issue, we created an insider’s list of amazing sights, offbeat places, challenging adventures, and just plain fun things to do. To make it more interesting, keep score and see how local you really are.

How to keep score? With selfies, of course! We’ve awarded each ‘thing’ a point value based on physical difficulty and the financial investment involved. On your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest account, post a selfie with the magazine at one or more of these must-do locations. Be sure to hashtag #OCLocal and tag us @orangecoastmag.

Each post on social media is an entry in the contest to win a Polaroid and other prizes! Winner announced September 29.
