It's a new development and the homes have already gone up in value. We like to go to local restaurants in the area. The town of Red Bank has a decent night life

There is enough place you can walk to and enjoy dinner and drinks and shopping is not to far away, and most people are very respectful

Neighbors don't bother you there are local stores to shop a. In the summer I like to go to a park with my family.t

quiet, safety, convenience, there is a big park with kid and dog area, some kind of public transport

the local asian supermarkets and the fabulous asian cuisine. everything is so conveniently available.

Restaurants are near. Outlet mall is also near. The beach is right behind my apartment. Freeway accessibility.

About

Laguna Niguel, CA

Overview of Laguna Niguel

Located in Orange County, Calif., Laguna Niguel is an attractive and affluent community located directly south of Laguna Beach along the Pacific Ocean. One-third of the city's land is designated open space, making this hillside community both breathtakingly beautiful and highly desirable. Its name comes from the Spanish word "laguna," meaning lagoon, and "Nigueli," the name of a former Janeno Indian village located nearby. Home to nearly 63,000 proud residents, Laguna Niguel offers SoCal living at its best.

During the 19th century, rancheros were established throughout Southern California, including Rancho Niguel. This formerly active sheep ranch eventually became part of the Moulton Company, which controlled 19,000 acres of local land. In 1959, the Laguna Niguel Corporation was established. The Laguna Niguel Corporation set out to plan one of the first master-planned communities in California. In 1989, the community's residents voted to incorporate as a separate city. Laguna Niguel then became the 29th city in Orange County.

Those searching for Laguna Niguel apartments for rent will love the area's natural beauty, master-planned amenities and access to the Southern California beachfront.

Living in Laguna Niguel, CA

Laguna Niguel is a safe and family-oriented community.

Laguna Niguel's spaces are well-maintained and lovely to enjoy, and residents take pride in their civic and residential surroundings.

The city of Laguna Niguel analyzed its residents by Tapestry Segmentation, a process that categorizes residents into groups based on their income levels, interests, careers, family situations and attitudes. Tapestry Segmentation suggested that 27 percent of the population classified as "Connoisseurs," a group which consisted of a median age of 47 years, are generally married and have an affluent lifestyle. After Connoisseurs, the top tapestry segments in the town were Urban Chic, Suburban Splendor, Enterprising Professionals and Top Rung. This upscale community is known for its corresponding high quality of life and many civic amenities.

Saddleback College, Brandman University, Concordia University, Irvine Valley College, University of California, Irvine and Orange Coast College are all located within 15 miles of Laguna Niguel.
