And the hills look gorgeous in the video but they are brown, like all SoCal hills, for most of the year.
Good points. Also looking at Stanton, they have a new build community called Lantana @ beach. Realistically is that still in the hood?

I haven't been out that way for a long time. All I can say is that the central west part of OC up against the LA county line is my least favorite part. It's old, flat, drab, paved over, and ugly. I grew up in La Habra (straight up Beach Blvd from Stanton). Where we are now in RSM is cleaner, newer, safer, more beautiful, closer to nature. You couldn't pay me to go back.

I hope you understand that "beach" refers to Beach Blvd? Stanton is not a beach town. To each his own but, personally, I have never found Stanton to be appealing in any way.

I would suggest that you fly down and spend at least a week looking at several South County cities. There are sometimes subtle differences between them that might, depending upon your personal tastes, convince you to live in one instead of the other.

For example, Laguna Niguel is hilly and very heavily treed. San Juan Capistrano (Mission is located there) is less developed with more of an "Old California" laid-back feel to it. Laguna Hills has some really nice older homes and horse stables. Laguna Beach is artsy with nice restaurants and galleries, but very expensive. San Clemente is a beach town, etc.
That's the plan. As soon as I find a dog sitter.

If OP is inclined toward Villa Park, I might also recommend North Tustin. Bigger lots and some interesting older homes. It’s like VP with hills. Some really cool houses in that area and definitely more down to earth even though there is wealth there too.
