If you are thinking of moving to sunny California, or if you want to make a move within the state, there are few better destinations than Orange County. Orange County is filled with wonderful weather, wonderful food, a great quality of living, and (who could forget?) the original Disneyland Park! Below is an overview of some of the top benefits of living in or moving to O.C:

1. You’ll taste the best oranges in the country

No kidding, this county truly honors its name with the sweet and delicious oranges grown here. Lines of orange trees are plentiful throughout numerous neighborhoods, so make sure you pick up some of the colorful fruit and make yourself some healthy, fresh orange juice every morning!

2. For animal lovers, O.C. has its own zoo

Irvine Regional Park hosts the Orange County Zoo, and though this zoo is small, you can enjoy the wonderful sights of black bears, mountain lions and bald eagles. Don’t forget to ask for a free audio tour via your cell phone. One tip: on Halloween, the zoo hosts some fun events for adults and children alike. Kids can participate in scavenger hunts, trick or treat, or make animal-themed crafts. The zoo is definitely a place you can’t miss.

3. O.C. is a favorite destination for filmmakers

Don’t be surprised if you’re walking down the street and you suddenly spot some cameras and actors. Orange County is well known for its temperate weather conditions, so big movie and television productions are often filmed there. It’s not just Hollywood that attracts the glitz and glamour of the filmmaking industry. A couple of examples are the movies “That Thing You Do!” starring Tom Hanks and “Accepted.” So, if you love movies, just stay alert, because you could end up appearing as an extra in a movie!

4. Disneyland is within Orange County

If you have kids, or even if you don’t, the good news is that “the happiest place on Earth” is located in Anaheim, a city within Orange County. If you live near Disneyland, purchasing annual tickets can end up being the most practical and affordable means of allowing your family to visit the park all year round. With its array of attractions to please the whole family, locals often frequent Disneyland.

5. Great houses are available here

Real estate in Orange County is very sought-after due to the area’s popularity, and although it’s a popular place to live, moving property can be easier than you would think. If you already live in the area, there are services available that will buy houses in Orange Country, allowing for a speedier move to your new home. So, you could be living your new life sooner than you might have thought possible.

6. Orange County is full of interesting history

It’s not an exaggeration to say that this county is full of historic buildings. In fact, O.C. has the second-highest concentration of historic sites in all of California, making it an ideal place to live and visit for those who like to engross themselves in history and education. There is even an area called the Historic District, where you can see lots and lots of buildings constructed a century or more ago. The area is maintained by the Olde Town Preservation Association. Don’t miss the Exchange Fine Arts Gallery on Glassell, which used to be the Sunkist Orange County Fruit Exchange Building.

7. If you like art, this is your place

Orange County has a lot of options if the arts, museums, opera houses and theaters are your thing. Segerstrom Center for the Arts is only a quick drive away from Orange, CA. There, you can enjoy hundreds of concerts, plays and big musicals, including Wicked, The Book of Mormon and The Wizard of Oz. So, even if you are in college, raising a family or retired, there is always great entertainment available for you, your friends, and your entire family.

8. O.C. has an excellent educational system

Students love it here, and Chapman University, which specializes in law, business, arts and film, is considered one of the best private universities in the Western United States. Between classes, you will see lots of students just strolling around the city, enjoying all of the facilities available in a safe environment. If you are thinking about studying in O.C. or are reviewing schools for your family members, you won’t be disappointed.
