Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains, Orange County encompasses 798 square miles and epitomizes the spirit and beauty of Southern California. An ideal climate and a hometown atmosphere make "California's Gold Coast" one of the nation's most livable metropolitan areas.

Orange County is perhaps the predominant success story of Southern California's overall success as a region. As Southern California's most prosperous area, Orange County's $133.7 billion economy, high median household income, low unemployment and staggering retail sales tell its story at a glance.

Things to do:
World-class shopping, dozens of concert venues, museums and major-league sports teams, such as the Anaheim Ducks and Angels, have confirmed Orange County's reputation as an entertainment mecca. With its 42 miles of legendary beaches and sunny weather 90 percent of the time, Orange County offers countless outdoor recreational opportunities.
