Mission Viejo is probably the safest city in Orange County.

The nicest area in SoCal is between Southern Orange County(cities listed above) and Northern San Diego County. Housing in these areas however are around $600,000 - $800,000+. My guess is that the house prices went down in the past 3 years.

There's a reason housing in SoCal is expensive compared to other states. It's not just the perfect weather. There's tons of things to do and places to go(already mentioned this in my early post). Location, Location, Location.

SF suburbs is nice similar to Orange County.


In addition to these beautiful cities, you should add 'Dana Point' to your list OP. You ll love it. It's just south of 'Laguna Niguel' / 'Laguna Beach'.

'Aliso Viejo' is another one worth checking out, newer than 'Laguna Niguel', but a little further from the beach approx. a 15' drive.

I m in the same boat as you, considering a move back to beautiful Cali.
