      Urban Hike!

      South  Coast Plaza Area

      Tourism – South Coast Plaza

      Two Bridges Row

       OC Museum of Art 

      California Scenario-Noguchi Gardens

       Ruby's Diner 

      If there were a 'super easy' category, this urban hike fall into that category.  Since there is no such category, this hike is listed as 'easy'.

      A leisure Sunday morning stroll begins at the first floor center lobby of Apple South Coast Plaza (formally known as the Crystal Court) at 10 AM.

      Our journey starts by going to the top floor and crossing the Bridge of Gardens (pedestrian bridge -first bridge) to main South Coast Plaza.  We will venture through the mall area to the outside area of Claim Jumpers restaurant.  We will then traverse over The Unity Bridge (our second bridge) toward the OC Museum of Art.  Spending an hour at the Museum, we will then venture to the California Scenario-Noguchi Gardens.  Stopping for photo opportunities, we will then double back from to our starting point.  For those so inclined, we will have  lunch at Ruby's Diner.

      The Bridge of Gardens:

      South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa) | SoCal Shopping Place

      OC Museum of Art:  

      Admission to OCMA is free.

      Along with its predecessor institution, the Newport Harbor Art Museum, OCMA has an established reputation as an innovative art museum with a history of actively discovering and engaging with living artists at pivotal points in their careers. Since its inception, OCMA’s commitment to artists and audiences has been at the core of its activities, presenting the voices and work of influential artists and creative thinkers through innovative and ground-breaking exhibitions and programs.

      In our new permanent home located on the Segerstrom Center for the Arts campus—designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis Studio—OCMA will continue to champion the transformative possibilities of art.

      Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne is the founder of the influential studio Morphosis and co-founder of the prestigious Southern California Institute of Architecture. For more than 40 years, Morphosis has practiced at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and design. With a team of more than 60 in Los Angeles, New York, Shanghai and Seoul, Morphosis focuses on rigorous research and innovation, prioritizing performance-driven design that is environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.

      Since its inception, OCMA’s commitment to artists and audiences has been at the core of its activities, presenting the voices and work of influential artists and creative thinkers through innovative and ground-breaking exhibitions and programs. In our new permanent home on the Segerstrom Center for the Arts campus, OCMA will continue to champion the transformative possibilities of art. From new commissions, performances, immersive activities, workshops, film series, and exciting community happenings, OCMA’s program engages and sparks meaningful encounters with art and ideas.

      OCMA’s dynamic visual arts program features major thematic exhibitions, surveys of leading contemporary artists, new commissions, and first-ever solo museum shows.

      California Scenario-Noguchi Gardens

       Commissioned by the Segerstrom family in 1979 and completed in 1982, Isamu Noguchi’s California Scenario is recognized as one of the country’s preeminent sculpture gardens and the most vital publicly accessible outdoor sculpture oasis in Southern California. One of the artist’s most important public sculpture gardens, its design symbolizes various geographical characteristics of California, incorporating indigenous plants and materials.

      Six principal elements comprise California Scenario:  Forest Walk, Land Use, Desert Land, Water Source, Water Use and Energy Fountain. The centerpiece of the garden is The Spirit of the Lima Bean, a sculpture of dramatic portions, composed of 15 rust-colored granite rocks cut precisely to fit together. This sculpture was created in recognition of Henry T. Segerstrom’ s friendship with the artist, Isamu Noguchi, and the Segerstrom family’s contribution to the agricultural heritage of Southern California.

      Unity Bridge

We’ll be on the left (West) side of parking lot by the rest rooms. (Note: we're on the WEST side of Ingraham St. Don't confuse this spot with a similar one on the east side of the street.)

          FAQs

          What is the difference between a regular GO campout and a conference campout?

          Conference is held once every year in October (as required in the by-laws) where delegates from each of the five chapters and the Corp board come together to:

          • Nominate and elect a new Corp board for the upcoming year.
          • Vote and amend any by-law changes that may occur.
          • Schedule and coordinate the next year's camping trips.
          • Special awards and recognition will be presented.

          Who puts on the Conference?

          • Hosting conference is by one of the five chapters on a rotational basis.
          • This year is hosted by the Palm Springs Chapter
          • Next year will be hosted by the Los Angeles Chapter and so on.

          Do I need to attend any of these business meetings?

          • Only if you are a chapter delegate, a Corp committee chair or Corp board member; however, all are welcome to attend.

          Can I come to any of these meetings if I am not on the Corp board or a delegate?

          • Yes! We encourage anyone who is interested in how our organizational leadership works to come and observe our meetings!

          What if I am not part of the Corp board or a delegate, can I still attend the conference?

          • Yes! There will be other planned activities and events you can take part in.
          • This is a great opportunity to hang out and get acquainted with other GO members that you would not normally meet outside your chapter designated area!

          Can I attend the day activities without camping?

          • Yes, register for day use only.

In addition to wildlife, the Preserve is an internationally-recognized birding site so consider bringing your binoculars. Preserve Education Rangers will join us to add their insight along the trail.

          After taking in the sites, we retrace our steps back to the trailhead and move onto Miracle Springs Resort & Spa for lunch at their indoor/outdoor Capri Restaurant and then “take the waters” in any of the 8 mineral pools of different temperatures.

          Elvis Presley Would Not Have Friended You | Vanity FairNashville, Memphis, Vicksburg and New Orleans

          GO OCLB is organizing a musical journey through the South with Gate 1 Travel beginning April 29 through May 6, 2024.

          At this time, we are only collecting names for those who are seriously considering such an excursion.  Those on the list will be the first ones to have the opportunity to register for the trip once we open the trip up for registration. 

          Expect registration to begin in early October.

          We intend this to be a Great Outdoors event only!  We are hoping to have the tour all to ourselves, which requires a minimum of 30 attendees.

          There will be a maximum number of 40 participants.

          In addition, we have secured a specific tour guide (Timothy), who is one of Gate 1 Travel's most respected Tour Guides.  It pays to have connections!

          In addition, Timothy is GAY!  So this trip will be fabulous!

          Of course you may want to arrive early (Dollywood!) and/or extend your stay (more New Orleans!) which will of course be the responsibility of each member.
