NORTH ORANGE COUNTY- North County of Orange is diverse, it's very close to Long Beach, Bellflower, and whittier. Its most popular citys are : Anaheim, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Fullerton Westminister, and Fountain Valley. The citys listed above are considered the more edgy, raw areas of OC. Its populated by Whites, Blacks, Asians, and Mexicans. There are alot of Hypsters, Gangsters, Low Lifes, Deadbeats, and Junkies. In these citys you can find alot of good food for cheap. All though Orange County has the reputation to be wealthy don't let the North Side deceive you, its nothing like the southside. Stay on mainstreets, don't go down side streets or allies, you will get robbed. Life styles of North OC : Graffiti/Street Art Party/Beer/Marijuana Mexican Food. Skateboard/Surfboard communitys. Many young teens in NOC will band together and live on the traintracks, abandon buildings in industrial areas, unless they are in a gang, then they support eachother. Most Adults dont make ends meat, they become homeless. North Orange County is rough because its population is to high and the amount of employment is low. NOC is much less wealthy than West Los Angeles. Apartments in Anaheim or Santa Ana that or 4 bdr can go from anywhere to 400-1200 a month. A NORTH SIDER WILL GIVE U THEIR LAST HOT CHEETO.
SOUTH ORANGE COUNTY- South OC is the definition of a bubble. It is not diverse at all. A SOUTH SIDER DOESNT EVEN EAT HOT CHEETOS.

A uptopian paradise in California where Amusement parks, Asians, Ice cream lovers and Soccer moms coincide and live with eachother in peace and harmony.
Orange county may be expensive, but its a fun place once you get to live there.

One of the safest counties in the country with atleast three cities that consistently make the yearly top ten of safest cities in America (usually Irvine, Mission Viejo, and Lake Forest).

Also, the best Mexican food in California can be found in Santa Ana. And the best Vietnamese food outside of Vietnam can be found in Little Saigon of Westminster.
"Why can't I get a decent slice of pizza in Orange County," says provincial New Yorker.

"For the same reason I can't get decent Mexican in NYC!", says proud Orange Countian.

A county in southern California that no one even knew existed until the atrociously bad written and unrealistic show, The OC, came out in 2002. Usually divided into two parts by residents: North and South. The North is not 'ghetto', and the South is not the 'extremely rich, plush side.' I live in Aliso Viejo (South county), where the average income is somewhere around 80,000.

There are places like Coto de Caza where the annoying CEOs live, but a majority of people living in Orange County don't have that much all goes to their rent or mortgage, so even if they have a higher level job, once they pay the bills there isn't much left (an example of which I can attest wholeheartedly to).

Orange County is a bubble, once you look past the gangs in both counties, as a great deal of it is master-planned and gives you the feeling of never stepping into reality.
Annoying idiot: Omg, in Orange County, North is so ghetto and South is so full of richies!
North person: ..No. How can it be ghetto when it still costs so much to live here? What, is it 'the ghetto life of a car designer'?
South person: I don't think so. South county isn't just comrpised of the used-to-be-artsy, now-super-expensive Laguna Beach or Coto de Caza. There are other communities with people who go paycheck to paycheck because of the cost of rent.
Annoying idiot: OH WHATEVER. You're just bitter because you don't live in Newport with Ryan and Marissa!

To the previous entry, actually, south county is one of the most conservative parts of the country. California may be liberal, but Orange County, especially South Orange County, is mainly conservative. Especially the soccer moms in their SUVS.
Wow! Orange County, although in California, is so conservative.

Not like it seems. A growing county with a great past. It's not full of white rich people.very diverse with a wide range of financial status. South county is home to many military families. Home of oranges, avacados, strawberries, and lemon farms. Farms are there you just have to know where to look. It's a beautiful area with perfect weather. It's way better then some house in chicago hights with no neighbors for miles. It's orange county not the OC.
dude from Idaho: Where do your live?
