Hello, we are new to California and we are searching for a house in OC. My job is in Costa Mesa. We are looking for a family oriented, culturally diverse and safe town with good schools. Less than an hour commute to Costa Mesa.
Any good options?

We found a house we like in Yorba Linda but I’m afraid the commute will be terrible. It’s hard to calculate that now in Google Maps during the pandemic.

Depending on where in Costa Mesa the job is you could take the toll road. Probably about 20 mins from Yorba Linda to the Airport via toll road.

My job is close to downtown. Is Yorba Linda a nice place to live?

You could get a lot closer than Yorba Linda and find what you are looking for. Shorter commute = happier life. How about Tustin?

Yes. Also expensive. As far as the drive with normal traffic you’re looking at a hour or more on the 57/91/55 route. (Depending on where in YL you buy may make a difference which freeway you take. )
Place it’s isn’t bad either.

I strongly suggest you look into as close as you can be to work. If you can swing Villa Park would be my choice

Ok, thanks!
We’re are looking also into Anaheim hills, Tustin, Orange, Aliso Viejo and Huntington Beach. Newport has great schools apparently but we can’t afford it. Irvine also has some good schools and very safe but we keep hearing some bad things about it.
Is Irvine a nice place? And from the other places listed which one would be the most family friendly one?
