Orange County, California is best known as the home of Mickey Mouse and Disneyland, but it’s also home to about 3 million people. It’s one of the most populous counties in the state and even in the nation and for good reason.
South of Los Angeles, much of Orange County lies along beautiful shoreline, making it an ideal tourist destination. The climate is nearly perfect, with average temperatures of 68 degrees. It was named for its numerous orange groves.
Orange County is also home to numerous celebrities, both past and present. John Wayne, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, Shirley Temple and James Cagney all kept their yachts in Newport Harbor. .Will Ferrell and Gwen Stefani were born in Orange County.
The nation came to know Orange County as “the O.C.,” when a TV series called, fittingly, “the O.C.,” focused on a fictional group of wealthy Newport Beach residents. In a slightly less fictionalized portrayal, the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” chronicles the shopping habits and familial strife of wealthy Orange County inhabitants.
Unlike much of California, Orange County is known for its conservative politics. Richard Nixon called the OC home. About ¾ of the county’s population is white and nearly 60 percent own their homes. The median income of over $75,000 pushes it above California’s median and far above the nation’s. OC also brags a significantly lower poverty rate than the rest of California.
Not only is the OC home to Disney Land and Knott’s Berry Farm, it’s also famous for shopping malls and numerous Fortune 100 companies, including regional headquarters for several car manufacturers like Mazda, Toyota, Kia, Mitsubishi and Hyundai. It’s also regional headquarters to Toshiba and Samsung and several fast food restaurants.
