Aliso Viejo, CAGreat place for young families, safe and beautiful Posted On: 6/9/2010 9:21:18 AM
We just moved here from the Pasadena area and so far we really love it. The truth is we are very close to Laguna Beach which in my opinion are the best beaches in all of Southern California, but we don't have the congestion and tourism that those places get. Aliso is a small community that really feels like one. It is typical orange county in the fact that all the homes are in tracts and are totally cookie cutter and small, but for small families, it works. Honestly it is not a place we will probably settle in but it's great while our kids are small. There are parks everywhere, library activities, tons of outdoor activities. There are a lot of stay at home moms which is fun because it's easy to make friends. There is a lot office space here too which for business is convenient. It is perched on the hill so we get great breezes from the ocean but no ocean view. I would have loved to be closer to the ocean but the prices are a little cheaper here because of it. Other than being a little generic, it's a great little community.
