I'm glad you asked that question, because I was wondering the same thing. I know that the demographic makeup of Yorba Linda is good (that is, professional people live there).

What I like about Yorba Linda (compared to South Orange County cities such as Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, San Juan Capistrano, etc.):
1) THE LOCATION
- Yorba Linda is near the intersection of Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties (as a result, you have access to jobs in those counties)

What concerns me about Yorba Linda (compared to an ocean-close city such as Laguna Niguel):
1) THE HEAT
- Yorba Linda is inland, so that the summers may be hot

For job-commuting reasons, we considered Yorba Linda several years ago. The location is less of a plus than you would think, because what is it really close to besides Anaheim? It's a ways to the beach or to LA, and it's a tough drive from anywhere on weekday afternoons. Houses are fine, but they don't really feel like 800k homes.

Yorba Linda is a great place to live...City has grown considerably during the past 10 years and lost a little of it's suburban life style. But it still provides a great environment, especially for those with kids. Schools are among the top in the state with Blue Ribbon Awards.

Yorba Linda is awesome. A lot of my family lives there and I used to live in nearby Fullerton. My only complaint with Yorba Linda is that if you are a commuter, the only freeway close by is the 91 and it can be a nightmare! If you don;t need a freeway every morning, Yorba Linda is fantastic!

It's overrated. It's wonderful for families, if you have two parents making 100K+ annually. Otherwise, you might struggle.

i still try to find out,where to live...at least i have 2 months left...yorba linda seems to be a great place to live..but there is one link that kills my picture of yorba linda:

Outdoor Air Pollution - California - Yorba Linda - Cleaning

after reading thins link and having the confirmation it is true..how can I (as a mother)put my child to breathe such an air??

..somehow i have a bad conscious doing that,even if there are blue ribbon schools and is close to my husband's work...

i would struggle there..not with the income..with the pollution...but where is less polluted???close to work in corona..still trying to find out...

To me: Yorkba Linda is almost the same south corona. The different is I pay only 3/4 or half the price of the same condition of the house in South Corona. So, work in Corona better stay in Corona-have more time with family instead of stay in the car during trafic.

Loved living in YL, but it does get hot. The freeway access will depend on which part of town you live in. Where I lived off of Yorba Linda Blvd near the border with Placentia it was reasonably convenient.

Very low crime, homicides are rare, and pretty laidback. There are even still some horse properties there.

Housing prices are generally $500,000 and up (that is only the last time I looked. They may have drifted into the $400,000 range by now). It is definitely somewhat overpriced.
