Laguna Hills Reviews

64 reviews
All Categories
Laguna Hills is a beautiful community that is warm and full of positive people who love nature. People who live here are in close proximity to the beach, and are very involved in beach conservation and art. This city has a beautiful spirit of gentle stewardess towards our natural gems. We are about 4 miles from the Pacific Marine Center, where locals often volunteer and tend to stranded and sick marine life that wash up on shore. It is becoming a growing need as the ocean temperatures fluctuate into warmer and warmer temperatures. Our marine life is extremely valuable to everyone, and as our ecosystems continue to suffer due to human negligence, we will also suffer consequences shortly after. Living here, I have learned to exchange information with other locals and rise up together to do beach cleanups, volunteer work, and observing climate and marine life changes.
Review Laguna Hills
Laguna Hills is one the best locations I've ever lived in, having Ralphs right across the street is very convenient, my visits there consist of quick snack stops, groceries and occasionally the pharmacy, offering great customer service I leave the grocery store in a reasonable amount of time.

Sometimes when gas is trouble i tend to go to Target (because they have everything you could ever need!) has a positive impact with the schedule and gas!

Also a quick work out at LA Fitness after Target won't hurt anybody especially since its right across the street and usually empty in the mornings!
I've taken vacations in the US since 2011 and finally moved to Laguna Hills, CA on September 2013. This city is the most peaceful and safest city I have ever lived in. If you value your privacy and peace- this is the place to be. This city isn't a party scene since it is the home of a lot of retired senior citizens but I enjoy the peach and quiet. It is at the heart of Irvine Spectrum, Krispy Kreme in Mission Viejo and minutes away from the Pacific Coast Highway beaches and hiking trails such as Laguna Beach, Top of the World, Newport Beach, Dana Point, Peter's Canyon, etc..
