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.

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.

This upscale community is known for its corresponding high quality of life and many civic amenities.
