As the summer draws to a close and the kids are going back to school, it can be sad to see the summer go. But a great way to send off the summer is by channeling your inner child with a trip to Disneyland! If you’re living on the east coast or are outside of the state of California you probably don’t want to deal with the hectic airport that is LAX. As an alternative to that why not check out some flights from the number one rated airport in America, the John Wayne Airport? With the possibility of finding cheaper flights and being closer to Disneyland when compared to LAX, it seems like a no-brainer! While you’re at the John Wayne Airport waiting for a flight why not come pay us a visit at InMotion?

Grab a Bite

Jerry’s Dogs

Getting to John Wayne Airport can be tiring so it’s important to refuel. Why not check out some of the best dogs this side of the country? While you’re at the John Wayne Airport make sure you check out Jerry's Dogs for some wood-fired goodness. There’s nothing like some roasted weenies over the fire while on a camping trip so, why not bring that same flavor to the John Wayne Airport? Jerry’s Dogs did exactly this. With their wood-fired dogs, burgers and sausages this is a great place to satisfy your kids while also picking up a specialty dog yourself.

Drinks in Belgium

After you’re done chowing down at Jerry’s Dogs go quench that thirst you’ve built up by checking out the Belgium Beer Bar. With dozens of beers to choose from it may be a little hard to know where to start. To get you started may we recommend a Belgian Dubbel? This traditional Trappist Ale features a rich malty profile with a mild hop bitterness so you won’t have to worry about that hoppy flavor staying in your stomach before the flight.

As you’re sipping that Dubbel why not put some Comply Sport Pro Universal Memory Foam Earphone Tips on your earphones? These little things mold to your ear shape using its foam-based design which provide excellent comfort and security for the price. The comfort doesn’t detract from the sound quality either since they block out the noise and enhance the bass.

Don’t Forget the Travel Essentials
