means business and much more! Irvine is undoubtedly well-regarded, having made quite a name for herself, not only in California but nationwide. Irvine, the business capital of Orange county, has been a multiple #1 "Safest City to Live" and locally tops many lists of "Best City" for living, working and a variety of other reasons. If you are looking to set up biz, looking for a job, search for a quality home and community, or be in an eco-friendly area, chances are you'll consider Ms. Irvine.

Vast Gal

Her vastness can be measured in both natural beauty and intellect. One remarkable quality of hers is being well-organized, to a fault perhaps. Also, Irvine is quite the nature lover, having a long reputation in being ecologically sound and overall, environmentally friendly. The thing most envious about her to many? Her worth is major due to her success in the technology and real estate field. Wow, she has very expensive taste!

Pretty and Preserving

As much as Irvine is building up with numerous living, working and other structures, she does preserve herself quite well with much effort paid to natural land conservation. Just look at this scene just outside of the UCI campus.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:full of entertainment for a suburb, keeps natural beauty (clean, full of trees & greenery), great hiking/cycling trails, safer place for accomodations
  • Cons:overly planned & suburban, which loses uniqueness; can be expensive (for living, gas, etc)
  • In a nutshell:Irvine- an Intriguing place!
