I live in Irvine Ca, this place in California is very nice the atmosphere is great . It's not to hot nor too cold. The beaches are near. Most of the school in the area are walking distances from the different houses. If i had to choose to live in Irvine again i would do it because everything you need it close and in walking distance. Everything is just so nice in Irvine.

I would rate this place as on of the best places to live. The crime rate is bad we rarely have crime in our area. The police are always visible and watching out for the people in the community. I remember a time when i had made a report for petty theft and the police came right away. This one of the reason why i like living in Irvine
This area, while it is very safe and comfortable, lacks the diversity that I would wish to see. I would wish to see a more equal dispersion of the cultures. It is very hard to find a place to eat as all the restaurants are very similar.
