Like it or dislike it, South Orange County has a very very safe, sterile, clean, upscale feeling. It also feels like this for a large geographic area. What other areas in warm US climates feel similar? Not just a city, but as a collection of cities.

Outside of California, there is no match in the United States. At least for the coastal part of the county, which is what you are thinking of I'm betting.

But, if you think the more Inland parts of the county, like Brea or Cypress or Fullerton; you can get some good compromises.

Albuquerque has similar temps to Inland Orange County from April through October (high temps 64 to 90, low temps 38 to 67, and low humidity).

Phoenix from November to April has similar temps to Inland OC (high temps 65 to 89, low temps 43 to 65 and low humidity)

And winter in Miami is similar to summer in Coastal OC (high temps 75 to 80, low temps 59 to 65, and winter is Miami's dry season like summer is OC's)

Based on that criteria, the following come to mind:

The western suburbs of Austin, TX
The Woodlands in metropolitan Houston, TX
The northern suburbs of Phoenix, AZ ie Carefree, Scottsdale, Cave Creek

When I think of South OC (Irvine say) I think of suburbia and mcmansions just with stucco/spanish villa style architecture (though many homes are basic as well). I think of strip malls, I think of wide roads, and well manicured lawns, I think of quiet and peace. And of course, I think of the ocean, hills, and palm trees.

Your closest bet in the USA is Palm Beach County in Florida.
