That is what makes it nice and appealing, its away from everything. Laguna Beach is gorgeous lived there but try to get home on a busy Summer Weekend, could take an hour. You cannot park at the market, etc. etc.

Coto is like being in Connecticut but in Southern California, peaceful can ride you mountain bike around with ease and no traffic to say. All the things you need are just 15 min but yet you feel far away from everything. We went from a tiny lot in Laguna to 1.2 acres with views of rolling hills and space from the neighbors.

Sure. I live 5 minutes from the north gate, by the way, so I'm very familiar with Coto. Nice place. But the point I was trying to make is that it is not a "city" in any sense of the word and doesn't belong a list of "cities in Orange County."

One thing I like about where I live (RSM) is that it's also right next to mountain bike trails etc. but in addition I can walk to Trader Joe's, Target, Lowe's, etc. etc. If you live in Coto you have to drive everywhere. Because it's not a city and doesn't have shops.

Laguna Beach (as expressed by many artists relative to its rolling hills and rocky coastline); it has a few beautiful neighborhoods which take full advantage of such, from my perspective, as well.

I chose NewPorsche Beach because one of my favorite restaurants is there. (Pizzeria Mozza.)

Well, that and Newport includes Balboa Island, where my g'parents owned a some property, back in the 20's to 40's. They

then moved to Manhattan Beach until the mid 1970's.

You and the Segerstroms owned property on Balboa Island back in the day. (the family owns South Coast Plaza and much more---I briefly dated the son, lol). Loved Balboa. When I was going to Orange Coast College, I worked at the "Tale of the Whale" restaurant there---great memories.

But I must vote for Laguna Beach that was our go-to beach growing up. No wonder it's full of artists with the gorgeous cliffs and landscape. The Laguna Greeter used to scare me as a kid, leaning into the car like a crazy guy (with a heart of gold, lol).

Makes sense, everyone has different things that appeal to them, for us not having shopping and the traffic or other issues that comes with that is appealing to us. Coto is as close enough yet far enough away. Also close to job market in OC like Irvine. Temecula wine country is very appealing for example but limited job opportunities. With its rolling hills that feel like you're in Tuscany and some wineries. Some of us are done with neighbor issues and want that little bit more of privacy and be just far enough away from all of that.

Why is Stanton, with the adults stores, pawn shops, strip clubs and hookers walking on Beach Blvd got a vote?

Coto is so far from the freeway. I can't never live there.
