City of Orange – Road Trip with Huell Howser (140)
Huell discovers the wonders of the historic City of Orange on this new Road Trip. Huell travels to the City of Orange in Orange County to learn about the rich history of this wonderful all-American small town. The city historian, Phil Brigandi, is Huell’s tour guide for the day and they start the adventure in the Plaza to learn about the “circle’ in orange and visit one of the many antique shops which line the town center. We’ll visit Watson’s Drugstore which has been serving milkshakes and filling prescriptions since 1899 and the Orange County Badminton Club which is the largest badminton facility in the Western Hemisphere which also houses a printing business and Thai restaurant. We’ll also visit Pitcher Park, which has several small museums on site and the last remaining packing plant in Orange County, Prime Produce. Huell also visits The Friendly Center, which offers programs and services for the economically less fortunate, which opened its doors in as an outreach to the migrant farm workers in Orange’s thriving citrus industry. This small town is a real hidden gem.
