VU's Favorite Summer Hangouts

Soak up the sun with friends or family and have a blast this summer. Around Vanguard University, there are many local opportunities worth exploring. Here are some of our top picks:
1. OC Fair (July 12 - Aug. 11, 2019) - 88 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa 92626
Located across the street from our main entrance on campus, the OC Fair celebrates community with fried food, farm animals and exhilarating rides. General single-day admission tickets are $12 on the weekdays and $14 on the weekends. We encourage students to go in groups and carpool to help reduce the $10 parking fee.
2. Neat Coffee - 1922 Pomona Ave, Costa Mesa 92627
Founded by Alumna Ally Garvin, Neat Coffee is a multi-roster cafe that houses their own seasonally inspired syrups and locally made almond milk. It's a great place to gather with fairly priced drinks.
3. C'est Si Bon - 149 Riverside Suite B, Newport Beach 92663 
French-owned bakery C'est Si Bon is a hidden treasure perfect for lunch. Known for its selection of sandwiches, buche de Noel cakes, fresh chocolate chip cookies, croissants served fresh five times a day and baguettes served fresh 10 times a day. It’s also the go to place to grab sandwiches on your way to a beach day picnic.
Vanguard University wishes our students a fantastic Summer!
