Hello! Thanks for dropping by and looking at my hometown. I am from Orange, California USA. It is a city of approximately 135,000 people located 32 miles (51km) SE of Los Angeles in Orange County. For a better frame of reference, Orange is approximately 9 miles (14km) from Disneyland (Anaheim).

The downtown Orange Circle picture you see above is registered in the US National Historical Register. It dates back to 1869 when Orange was first laid out. The Orange Circle and a lot of the surrounding buildings that date back to the early years of Orange still remain today

So how's the weather in Orange, CA you ask? Click here to find out!

    Great tips! Been through Orange many times. I will never forget the TV commercial "You won't get a lemon at Toyota of Orange".

    Nice parks. We have a lot of festivals like your here too. Heh -- the Orange train, the Orange block - I'm amazed the buildings aren't painted orange. Hockey rools!

    Hello Phil! Nice to see that somebody over there has heard of Jokerit. I am not a sports fan but can say Jokerit is not my favourite team! Nice page on OC. Happy birthday from Finland!
