1 hour South of Los Angeles, sits one of the wealthiest areas of the country - Orange County. Celebrating the much anticipated season premiere of The OC, I decided to head down to Orange County myself this weekend to check it out. (By the way, I was pleasantly surprised at how good episode 1 was...I questioned whether or not they could do it without Mischa, but it was pretty good). There is a reason why so many filthy rich people live in Newport and Laguna Beach - because it's absolutely breathtaking. A much slower pace than LA, Orange County offers a small town feel with views and charm that are unmatched.
I mean, really... who could turn down an offer to live in Southern California with views like this?
