From what I can tell, San Diego county has maybe more of both extremes, with a liberal cultural environment in San Diego maybe in the city proper that Orange County lacks, with suburbs that are more conservative than Orange County.

Whereas Orange County doesn't have the urban core, with cultural offerings that would attract a liberal cultural core, it also doesn't have the military economy that would attract the more "masculine-conservative" culture the way San Diego might.

I don't think there are too many other areas that go from hip progressive neighborhoods to Deep South-like backwards yahoos in ten miles flat!
Most larger cities in the midwest and south are like this.
