San Joaquin Hills Reviews

The climate is lovely and the scenery is great. It's mostly a residential area. This area is pretty safe, but there's not much to do. If you don't have a car, you're stuck at home. I nearly always have to go to Irvine on the weekends since Newport Beach can be very expensive. The people are mostly rich, and there's not too much of a community feel.

Beautiful neighborhood. Only bad thing is the entitled attitudes of some of my neighbors, but that is something that you will encounter anywhere in Orange County.
Newport Beach is a beautiful coastal community that is home to some of the best restaurants, schools, and attractions within the nation. The restaurant scene is versatile and its variety offers a wide range for everyone's taste and preference. While the city itself is clean, safe, and beautiful, some of the people can be less than welcoming. I wish there was a greater sense of community within the city and people were more apt to voluntarily help others rather than be focused on a more selfish agenda. I see many people become consumed over trying to have the "best" of everything in terms of material possessions and I wish there was less of an emphasis on that. In Orange County and this town especially, there is an overvalue in physical appearances and an undervalue in morals and values. Overall, I am very blessed to live in such a wonderful area but I would like to see an improvement in terms of unity and kindness throughout the city.
