  • The Plaza and Old Towne Historic District


    Intersection of Glassell and Chapman

    Residents and visitors have repeatedly voted historic Old Towne Orange the county's favorite downtown. The Plaza conjures up images of Main Street, USA complete with outdoor dining, specialty shops, and the central Plaza Park. More than 60 antique dealers line the downtown streets, making Orange the antique capital of Southern California. From the Orange Station, it’s about 2.5 blocks to the Plaza and the beginning of the historic district.

    Tips: Old time OC. My small town roots bring me to Old Towne Orange often where I like to visit the antique shops and Watsons Drug Store. I'm a sucker for small town friendliness and this community has that and more. I love the college town atmosphere mixed with the eclectic feeling of pubs and coffee houses. It is fun to stroll and shop along the streets near the circle where you can usually find a unique gift for yourself or someone else. - Tony Toth

    Old Towne Plaza Historic District begins at the intersection of Chapman Avenue and Glassell Street.

    Tip: Ruby's Restaurant (Arguably the best Ruby's of all, with Train Depot theme/full cocktail bar)
    - Excellent offering of Cinnamon Bun French Toast with bacon (cooked just right) served up during my visit. Much talk of fascinating local Orange history, including the beginnings of the train depot station and tales about prominent town settlers, is discussed here over brunch.
