What we're about

Welcome to the OC Good Life!

Our group of fun, friendly people, whether single, married, attached, kids, pets, or not, will welcome you. We're lucky to live in Orange County where we can (and will) enjoy local social activities like:

Museums
Art Exhibits

House dinners and house parties

and

Enjoying all that the Good Life in the OC has to offer!

After much discussion with people just like you, we were inspired to create this group for the same reasons that you are here. We are all looking to do fun things together, as a group of friends, and meet other people in the local area that enjoy going out and having fun. Trying that trendy new restaurant or going out on the dance floor somewhere new is much more enjoyable when you do it with fun people in a group.

* We always want everyone to feel welcome, and that means that we are committed to having everyone feel comfortable as well as safe. If it's your first time to one of our events, please don't be afraid that you won't know anyone. We will make sure you are welcome.

* Suggestions are always welcome, and we'd love to have as many different types of events that as you can think up.

* Together we will have new experiences, explore new places, try new things, and enjoy all that Orange County and surrounding areas (and even the entire world!) have to offer. Whatever your interests, you will find an event for yourself in this group.

We look forward to meeting you!
