Best Place to Live in Irvine, California

We lived in Irvine for 16 years. The overcrowding and overpopulation by Asians (who won't talk to you unless you are Asian) were the main reasons we left. I think too many people drink the, "kool-aid" when is comes to the school system. There are other places with schools that are just as good with smaller class sizes and much better funding. We were so disappointed to see how Irvine developed. For a planned community is appears that they planned to just cram as many people in as possible. It is a well kept city but it feels like a rat race. What a shame that "white flight" has kicked in and it is becoming another Garden Grove with good schools!
