“Located in West OC, The Shark on the Harbor is a favorite of both locals & tourists. The menu is fresh, locally sourced, and changes daily. Vegan & gluten-free options are available. Check out Trip Advisor for their outstanding reviews and their website for daily menus! From their website: “We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.””

Amusement Park
“Great go cart tracks along with other activities. Get the 2 hour wristband and you will not regret it - other than the kid's faces may hurt from smiling for so long. Something to do if you need a break from the sun.”
