Great places for walking in the OC (Orange County, California)

Southern California’s Orange County comes with great weather all year and many inviting places for outdoor activities and walking around. There are times I’d rather walk around for people watching and cultural visuals than the nature trails of the great outdoors; in other words, free attractions & destinations.
