CVB Tip

Whether you're already here, coming for business or thinking of visiting, check the current list of Special Offers from businesses in and around Irvine for savings on hotels, restaurants, attractions and more. More

When you visit Irvine, you notice something special right from the start: no-stress convenience.

It starts from the moment you arrive, whether driving, flying into John Wayne/Orange County Airport or traveling by rail or bus to Irvine Station. After all, being able to move in and out the city easily — and being able to get around easily while here — is part of Irvine's commitment to sensible transportation — one of the many benefits of a master-planned city.

Irvine hotels continue that convenience, offering accommodations for any budget and conveniently clustered in two areas: one literally minutes from the airport — perfect for meetings and conferences — and one near the junction of I-5 and I-405, putting all of Orange County within easy reach.

Even the weather is convenient in Irvine, with average daytime temperatures in the 70s, mild winters and more than 280 sunny days a year. It's weather that makes you want to get out and enjoy the nightlife, go dancing, catch a show at the theater or just see a movie with the kids — and weather that's perfect for nearby organic farming and ranching, helping to create a lively dining scene in Irvine and some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in Orange County.

Whether you've been to Irvine before or are a first-time visitor, planning your family vacation or your company meeting, see Southern California at its best with our Irvine phototour. We've also collected special offers from businesses in and around Irvine to make your stay even more economical.

Speaking of economical, there's one thing you should be sure to do before you leave this site: request a free Irvine Visitors Guide or simply download a free digital version right now. Whether you've already scheduled your stay or are just considering a visit, we'll mail you a copy of our magazine-style guide for visitors with maps, information about places to stay, what to see and where to eat — a great way to start to get to know the center of Orange County. Now how convenient is that?
