It's hard to stay. The biggest difference is beach city or not beach city. Most of the non beach cities are very similar (Irvine is closer to jobs, and more Asian), RSM is more "out there" and less expensive and Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, and Mission Viejo are sort of in between.
Ladera, Coto and Las Flores aren't cities.

Ladera, Las Flores, and Coto are nice because they have alot of open space, hills.

Newport Beach..

But other than that, the only cities I've ever been to on that list are Irvine and Costa Mesa (driving through doesn't count.)

Laguna Beach. Not only because it is beautiful, it is also our hometown.

Newport Beach, the crown jewel of Orange County, central to everything, beautiful, modern roads, great restaurants and wonderful climate.

Newport Beach, my home, my Shangri-La. I love it in so many ways, but one is because the wonderful morning fog in the hills I often get really makes for a nice morning walk, very refreshing.

honorable mention goes to the planned communities of Rancho, Las Flores, and Ladera, they may not be everyone's cup of tea but they are some of the best values in OC, warm and family friendly!

That's my favorite too. My dad lived in Laguna for 10 years pretty close to Main Beach.

Dana Point without a doubt, although I like the old Dana Point better than the present.
