I may be moving to Anaheim, and was wondering what cities have a nice mix of people - not just all white or mexican... with, of course reasonably low crime. Just good old working class area within 20 miles of Disneyland.
I'm white, and get bored with looking at white people all day. I'm thinking a mix of white, black, mexican, asian etc...
When we go look at neighborhoods - we'll concentrate on recommendations made here.

Thanks!

There are no major black majority ares in OC that I know of. You can find a decent mix of white, Mexican, and various Asian cultures in Garden Grove I guess, but like every other part of LA it's highly self-segregated.

There aren't a lot of black in OC. There's a mixture of people throughout the county for the most part. Much of north OC, Anaheim in particular, is heavily Mexican. Asians are most heavily concentrated in Garden Grove, Westminster, Fullerton, and Irvine.

Anaheim has white, Hispanic, and Arab populations. Other areas of the county are more racially homogenous. I think Anaheim is the diverse city you are looking for. Whittier is also racially mxed and between 10-15 miles from Disneyland. A noticeble number of blacks are moving to the Whitter/La Habra area. Both these cities are majority Hispanic - yet the Hispanics do not drown out the other races/cultures.

Try La Palma.. it's probably the OC city with the largest black percentage in North OC.. and it's also one of the better areas (almost on par with Irvine in terms of income and safety.) Of course, neighboring Cerritos and Lakewood also have decent black populations (% in the high single digits).

That's not true. Why would you even state that?

Whittier is predominantly White and Hispanic.

2010 Whittier Census
1.3% African American
3.8% Asian
65.7 Hispanic or Latino

OP, my vote would be Fullerton too if your plan to live in North O.C.

2010 Fullerton Census
2.3% African American
22.8% Asian
34.4% Hispanic or Latino
