While I know most of Orange County is not straight out of 'The OC' or 'Laguna Beach' shows, I thought I might share some pictures of the places that inspire the stereotypes!

Along the Pacific Ocean between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach lies the Newport Coast development. The development is home to several thousand people and features homes ranging from apartments to multi-million mansions with ocean views. The area is popular because of its ocean views, the Pelican Hill golf club and resort hotel, Crystal Cove Promenade shopping plaza, and quick access to the Pacific Coast Highway & CA-73.

These pictures represent some of the homes in the neighborhoods of Pelican Ridge, Pelican Hill, and Pelican Crest.

The last three photos are not my credit, but were taken by Andrew Bramasco of The McMonigle Group and feature a beautiful home currently for sale.

The area is undeniably gorgeous, but it is quite expensive, if not overpriced, and it's hard not to keep up with Jones'.

Lots of Mission Viejo (which I didn't spend much time in) but all of the photos were awesome!

Little word of advice to all California residents, DON'T MOVE TO MIAMI FLA! That will be the worst mistake you'll make.

Beautiful homes! The McMonigle Group has a stronghold on representing the finest real estate in Orange County these days.

There are some great pictures in this thread, too bad about all the discussions and bickering..

I live in Foothill Ranch and worked in Irvine for about 1 1/2 years a few years ago. While housing was expensive and traffic a bit much at times, it still was a great experience.

Here are some images you normally don't associate with Orange County. I always found it amazing you could drive or ride up Santiago Peak and be away from everything.

What's even more amazing is all those towers seem to be completely unprotected from vandalism or from those (like terrorists) with interests in disrupting communications.

Pictures from the 5 day strike that halted education over the 55,000 Capistrano Unified School District that serves the majority of southern Orange County. 2,200 teachers went on strike over wording in their contract that made pay cuts possibly permanent rather than temporary during an economic downturn. Teachers ended the strike on a Tuesday morning, returning to school and reaching an agreement that has the 10% pay cut expire and if additional funding is found it goes to restore pay.

Teachers at Capistrano Valley High School protest at the school entrance off Via Escolar in Mission Viejo. The reduced hours for the school day due to the strike are on the school sign board. Student attendance averaged 11% over the 3 instructional days of the strike at CVHS.

During the school break period, administration prevents the few students that showed up to school to do "life planning packets" from leaving campus or going to the teachers.
