The Brady Bunch house is in the San Fernando Valley, North Hollywood to be exact, and is included in the city of Los Angeles. Anaheim Hills is located in Orange County and was pretty much a dusty canyon land in the 50's and 60's.

The peninsula between San Francisco and San Jose, basically Silicon Valley, has a large cache of mid century modern including entire Eichler neighborhoods.

The whole valley is a story of three different populations. PS is middle class, gay, and still the center of the valley. Palm Desert is upper middle class to outright wealthy, and then Indio is lower middle class to downright poor. An interesting population diversity in the Coachella Valley.
Well, one reason is because the East Coachella Valley (Indio, Coachella, Thermal, etc.) relies abundantly on lots of agriculture, drop irrigation, farm labor by migrants, and, on a lesser note, livestock (mainly consisting of chickens, horses, and cattle), and as well bear a heavy majority Hispanic population (+70%). You know, if you sometimes think about it, the cities/towns in the eastern half of the CV, yes, including Indio, are actually quite a bit similar to many Central Valley cities/towns.
