"Don't EVER..." Newport Beach Warnings Or Dangers Tip by emilesc
Newport Beach Warnings and Dangers: 4 reviews and 2 photos
Don't EVER call it The OC. People will laugh at you. This is the equivalent of calling San Francisco "Frisco." Think about it... it's not "The Orange County." Some people call it OC, but never put a "The" before it.
Note: The above was written on Aug 22, 2003 during the first season of "The OC." Since then, it's become more common for people to refer to the area as "The OC," as a nod to the popularity of the show. I think it's used with a healthy dose of irony and you'd probably still get strange looks if you asked a local to take you to "The OC."
