ABOUT ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA:
Orange County is a county in Southern California, United States. Its
county seat is Santa Ana. According to the 2000 Census, its population
was 2,846,289, making it the second most populous county in the state
of California, and the fifth most populous in the United States. The
state of California estimates its population as of 2007 to be 3,098,121
people, dropping its rank to third, behind San Diego County. Thirty-four
incorporated cities are located in Orange County; the newest is Aliso
Unlike many other large centers of population in the United States,
Orange County uses its county name as its source of identification
whereas other places in the country are identified by the large city
that is closest to them. This is because there is no defined center
to Orange County like there is in other areas which have one distinct
large city. Five Orange County cities have populations exceeding 170,000
while no cities in the county have populations surpassing 360,000.
Seven of these cities are among the 200 largest cities in the United
Orange County is also famous as a tourist destination, as the county
is home to such attractions as Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm,
as well as sandy beaches for swimming and surfing, yacht harbors for
sailing and pleasure boating, and extensive area devoted to parks
and open space for golf, tennis, hiking, kayaking, cycling, skateboarding,
and other outdoor recreation. It is at the center of Southern California's
Tech Coast, with Irvine being the primary business hub.
The average price of a home in Orange County is $541,000. Orange County
is the home of a vast number of major industries and service organizations.
As an integral part of the second largest market in America, this
highly diversified region has become a Mecca for talented individuals
in virtually every field imaginable. Indeed the colorful pageant of
human history continues to unfold here; for perhaps in no other place
on earth is there an environment more conducive to innovative thinking,
creativity and growth than this exciting, sun bathed valley stretching
between the mountains and the sea in Orange County.
Orange County was Created March 11 1889, from part of Los Angeles
County, and, according to tradition, so named because of the flourishing
orange culture. Orange, however, was and is a commonplace name in
the United States, used originally in honor of the Prince of Orange,
son-in-law of King George II of England.
