The OC: West Coast Living

Posted on November 19, 2020   |   by   |   Job Seekers, New Grads, Work Environment

Orange County: choose your lifestyle–with so many to choose from it’s no wonder that when people move here, they stick around.  The OC contains an abundance of playhouses, museums, and a world-class performing arts center along with spectacular beaches, shopping, markets, amusement parks (Disneyland!), and outdoor recreation–mountains for skiing and hiking, lakes for fishing, beaches for bonfires, and of course the ocean for those into boating.

City Breakdown – 

Squeezed between an ocean and mountains, Orange County offers several stunning locations for an array of lifestyles. From sandy beaches to university towns to rocky shorelines and rolling hills–the OC has a niche for anyone. 


Known as the Safest Big City in America by the FBI for 9 continuous years, Irvine is the business and research hub of the OC. With wide open spaces and streets, Irvine is a popular destination for many families. 

Laguna Beach

This rocky coastline area was settled by a group of artists and still remains the art capital of Orange County. The historic Pageant of the Masters is held every summer (one of the top art festivals in the nation).   

Newport Beach

Housing the Balboa Peninsula, Newport Harbor, and two piers, this area prides itself on topnotch schooling, restaurant diversity, and has even boasted it contains the cleanest beach in the US.

Yorba Linda

Another one of the OC’s safest communities, Yorba Linda is often known as the richest city in the US. Don’t let that deter you though, it has a thriving job market in a beautiful suburban setting.
