Orange County is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, and located about 1-hour drive south of Los Angeles and 2-hours drive north of San Diego. There are 34 incorporated cities located in the county, with the four largest cities being Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, and Huntington Beach. The Pacific Ocean borders the coastal cities of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, San Clemente, and Huntington Beach aka “Surf City U.S.A.” Residents and visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches stretching along the 40 miles of coastline.
