About Orange County

How to Beat a Orange County Traffic Ticket

In 1887, silver was discovered in the Santa Ana Mountains attacting many settlers to the area on the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific Railroads. The growth led to the divide of Los Angeles County and the creation of Orange County in March of 1889. It is said that Orange County is named after the citrus fruit to promote the idea that the area could be a paradise where anything could grow.

Orange County benefited from the completion of the Pacific Electric Railway in 1904 and gained in popularity as it grew to be known as the weekend getaway retreat for Hollywood celebrities. Today, roughly 3.2 million people live in Orange County, making it the third most populous county in the state of California and the sixth most populous in the United States. In fact, Orange County is more populated than twenty-one of the U.S. states and only consists of 948 square miles. It is bordered on the southwest by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by L.A. County, on the southeast by San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, and on the southeast by San Diego County.

Orange County is one of the most visited areas in the world, home to Disneyland California, Knott’s Berry Farm, and 40 miles of coastline with some of the most popular beaches in California. The county is home to the largest mall in California, the South Coast Plaza Mall in Costa Mesa, California, as well as the location for several Fortune 500 companies’ headquarters, including Ingram Micro, Broadcom, and Pacific Life. Orange County and, more specifically, Huntington Beach also serves as the annual host of the U.S. Surf Open, the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tournament and the Vans World Championship of Skateboarding.
