I went here on a whim with a friend of mine, and wow, is this place cool!
The building is pretty big, but lacks in parking, so be sure to get there early to ensure you can get a good spot.
From sports memorabilia to trading cards to action figures and everything in between, this place has it all. I've gotten a handful of nice things there over the years, even things from overseas that I never knew existed. Just walk around the whole place first before making any purchase -- you never know if another booth may have it for less. :)

Bread & Barley

Reviewed By Doran B - West Covina, California

Cozy is a great way to describe this place. It has a local pub feel. Their selection of beer is always changing and always good. The food is also quite exceptional. We love the Mac and Cheese and the flash fried brussels sprouts are awesome. Also be sure to get the house cooked chips.

Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park

Reviewed By Ninee - Oklahoma

A huge beautiful park for kids, pets, walkers, runners, gatherings, reunions, picnics and whatever. No alcoholic beverages are permitted on the property altho many people bring coolers full of it. We have had many family gatherings here and always had a good time. No fee's to park or use the facilities. My only concern is that there are usually a few 'odd' ones that wander the grounds and I wouldn't recommend letting your children out of your visual site, or let them go to the restrooms alone. Farther up the road and past the park a bit, there are hiking trails that are very interesting. Just be sure to wear shoes that cover your feet (no sandals) and long pants because there are snakes and nasty looking spiders. We recommend this location.

Red Lantern Escape Rooms

Travel to the Louisiana Bayou without ever leaving California, and solve the mystery of the restless alumni before your hour is up! Red Lantern is the largest escape room in Orange County.

Reviewed By SteveDeleo - Brea, California

It was decorated beautifully and excellent craftsmanship. The story line/theme was good but should have made it more interesting and allowed for more interaction through props. It was a perfect fit for 10 girls to each have a chance to get involved. Awesome backdrops, decor and sound effects. We almost escaped by 20 seconds!

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

The Inspired by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, a handful of devotees began conducting weekly assemblies in the late 1970's and early 1980's. In 1984, His Holiness inaugurated the first BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Whittier, California, a small suburb just outside of Los Angeles. With the guidance and blessings of His Holiness, the congregation grew from just a handful of families to a strong group of dedicated devotees who yearned for spiritual growth. In 2000, His Holiness visited the current site of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills and invigorated the congregation's desire to build a traditional Hindu Mandir. The congregation completed with Haveli building (more commonly known as the Visitors Center) in 2007. In 2012, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills was dedicated and opened with great joy. This Mandir is the fifth traditional Hindu Mandir in North America.

This is a beautiful Hindu temple. Perhaps one of the most expansive religious, learning centers in the entire United States. The fact is, it is simply awesome.

I have been coming to this shrine since it opened. Throughout these years, it has constantly been under construction and reconstruction. At some point, perhaps it will finally be completed. Which I'm sure will just be beautiful. This fact is just something to let you know what is going on, as when you go here, it is not uncommon that you will see workmen working on the various amenities throughout these grounds.

The main focus of these grounds is obviously the temple itself. But, there is also other facilities throughout the grounds: a large banquet facility, a cafeteria, a food store, a youth learning center and gymnasium, and even a gift shop. So, all of your needs are taken care of.

One thing to note, and something to keep in mind when you come here, this is not a tourist destination as some people seem to think it is. It is a religious shrine. So, when you come here, even if you are not a practicing Hindu, please respect the sanctity of this location.

All this being said, this is a beautiful temple facility. Hindu or not, coming here, you will definitely feel the out reaching spirituality.

Seemed like a nice clean mall. Not too overpriced with their stores, and not too cheap either. Nice comfortable mall. The top floor was a little warm that day so it was kind of uncomfortable. The food court was rather small too. However there were several nice looking restaurants to choose from. Would definitely come here again!!

The Nixon museum did not shy away from the Watergate scandal, they addressed it right up front in the introductory film strip and included a large display covering the details. Watergate was not what we walked away remembering, rather all of the accomplishments from the Nixon years in office. We were very impressed by the man and the manner in which his story was told within the museum.

Harkins Theatre

Reviewed By nativecal - Sunny Southern California

Harkins is one of the best theater chain out there, with reasonable prices, great rewards, clean and comfortable seats and always the latest selection of movies. With easy parking, restaurants nearby and even a child care area for those that want to leave their children in monitored care (a paid activity), it's perfect for all.
