Orland is really big on representing themselves, as in having spirit in youth sports and including highschool sports. The Battle of the Axe is a well known football game between Orland and Willows (another town in California, near Orland) highschool students. The highschool and the Orland community held victory that made history.

I love my town! Orland is amazing! its is small and quiet and very calm.
Orland is a very friendly town with friendly helping people. it is very calm at night and it is a safe town. it is a good place for people who like to live in the country where it is quiet. it is also good for people who like having pets.
I moved here from the bay area. I lived in San Jose my entire life I am 58 years old now. It has been a huge cultural shock for me cause there is virtually nothing to do here there is no shopping malls or movie theaters. But on the up side there is no traffic and everyone is so friendly here and knows your name. It's a bible belt there are more churches in this town than anything else. I feel very safe here the crime rate is very low here . Orland is like going back in time into the 50's. Its total country here. Very family oriented. Not really geared towards single adults. It's all about sports if you like that which I dont. Whatever I want to do or need I pretty much have to go to chico or willows especially for entertainment or shoping of any kind which is disappointing and inconvenient. So it's pretty boring here. But, honestly regardless of my complaints I do love it here. Just wish there was more to do.
