Typical middle-class town. Central areas are more Hispanic and lower income, while the areas bordering Fullerton and Brea are more upscale. There is a clear socio-economic divide in this city, but I think that it serves the town well because it promotes a diverse city with multiple backgrounds. There isn't much crime here and it is very family oriented. There is very little to do here, but that's fine because I see this as a housing area with entertainment being offered in LA and Anaheim. I wish there was a hotel or lodging place here because there isn't any place to stay here when family or friends come over. Most of the retail and businesses are in neighboring Fullerton, so it doesn't seem like there is much interest in developing anything here outside of strip malls. Not too far from beaches and nightlife, La Habra is a great place if you're looking for suburban calmness.

La Habra. It's a small city in Orange County area. It has pretty good infrastructure and shopping places. There is some high school in this area, but La Habra does not have a college. The streets are clean, but a little bit narrow. For family recreation: Unfortunately, we don't have a big park, we do have some small parks though. The race demographic here is mostly dominated by Latinos and Latinas, very few Asians and Blacks and some Whites. In my opinion, La Habra should have more public recreation area like Buena Park does. Also, some public college or university around here.
Great town. Located right above all the things to do like Disneyland and Knotts. Not too far from Los Angeles and South OC. The location is very ideal. The one other thing about this place is that it's removed from freeways, yet still close so it's easy to get everywhere without having to worry about too much traffic inside the town. Often an overlooked city when people are looking for homes because it's in between a bunch of other small cities, but it's a great place for families and business. Housing is a bit cheaper than some other parts of Orange County, but still too expensive. You won't find nightlife here or much of North OC.
