Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Lake Forest Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Lake Forest, CA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Lake Forest hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Heritage Hill Historical Park should rank at the top of your list of things to do here. It's a tiny village with four separate historic buildings that contain exhibits and artifacts dating back hundreds of years. It's open from Wednesday through Sunday, and if you'd like a guided tour, consider making a reservation in advance.

Then you have Arden: The Helena Modjeska Historic House and Gardens. It's a gorgeous place to visit, whether you're there for the history or the beautiful gardens. Actress Helena Modjeska originally owned the house, but it now belongs to the city. You can take self-guided or guided tours of both the gardens and the house to learn how the actress lived and worked in her own home as well as enjoying the landscaping she so lovingly cultivated.

Now that you've whetted your appetite for a Lake Forest vacation, it's time to choose your hotel and book your reservations. Fortunately, this city offers many to choose from regardless of your budget or preferences.

Best Time to Visit Lake Forest, CA

Located just outside Irvine in southern California, Lake Forest enjoys beautiful weather all year long. Summers bring more heat and tourists, so if you prefer a more relaxed environment, you might want to wait for another season. However, the Lake Forest community hosts more festivals and events between May and August, so if you're interested in those types of entertainment options, consider a summer vacation.

In the winter, lows can dip into the 40s or below, so you won't want to spend much time on the water. However, daily highs remain tolerable, so you can save on hotel prices and avoid tourist crowds if you select this time of year for your Lake Forest vacation. Alternatively, you can choose the more moderate shoulder seasons. Fall gets a little more rainfall than spring, though southern California is notorious for its low precipitation rates. Hotel prices start to fall in September and don't pick back up again until April or May.

A vacation doesn't have to mean depleting your savings. If you stay at the Best Western Plus Irvine Spectrum Hotel, for instance, you'll get great rates without having to sacrifice cleanliness or comfort. This branded hotel features modern decor and design, which will appeal to many travelers, and its outdoor pool allows guests to cool off during brutal Lake Forest summers.

There's a fitness center and a business center as well as a friendly reception staff. The guest rooms are minimalist, which makes them feel more spacious, and you'll enjoy watching cable channels on your flat-screen hotel from either a king or queen bed. The bathrooms are on the small side, but you'll get plenty of toiletries and fluffy towels.

Alternatively, save a buck or two at The Prominence Hotel and Suites. It's an interesting choice because of its great nightly rates, but you can also splurge on add-ons if you wish.

The Best Restaurants in Lake Forest, CA

Restaurants in Lake Forest range from fast food to gourmet cuisine. Regardless of your taste and palate, you'll find plenty to eat in this picturesque lakeside town.

If you're looking for casual dining options that you won't find in your own town, stop by The Habit Burger Grill. This fast food establishment gets rave reviews because it loads its burgers with fresh, crisp vegetables and serves unique sides with its sandwiches.

If you're more in the mood for Mexican food in a cheerful atmosphere, make reservations at La Cocina de Ricardo. It's a festive joint that serves huge portions of enchiladas, nachos, fajitas, and every other south-of-the-border favorite. Taco lovers can save money by timing their visits for Taco Tuesdays, while travelers who have trouble choosing between dishes should shoot for one of the inventive combination plates.

Seafood lovers might want to check out the California Fish Grill. It's a casual eatery that specializes in fried and grilled fish, and it also offers an excellent wine list. Consider stopping here for lunch on a weekday if you want to beat the crowds and enjoy a pick-me-up before your next sightseeing adventure.

Romantics, on the other hand, should make reservations at Tutto Famiglia. It's an upscale Italian restaurant that specializes in delicious pasta dishes — served alongside a glass of your favorite vino, of course. As the restaurant's name suggests, it's a family-owned business that has garnered excellent reviews in the community and serves as the perfect date-night destination.

Lake Forest offers the perfect vacation spot any time of year. You'll find yourself less than an hour from the beach, but why fight the crowds on the sand when you have the lake in your own backyard? Book a reservation at one of the hotels recommended above to get ready for your next exciting adventure.
