Summer Sounds in Orange County

0 Comment

fireworks rvsdIf you live in the OC, either central or northern Orange County your probably familar with the friendly sounds of summer each and every night.

That’s right, every single night it happens at 9:30!

I’m one of those who has lived in So Cal all my life, and I’ve grown accustom to the clock setting institutions like the fireworks from the “friendliest place on earth” Disneyland of course,  in nearby Anaheim.  Just ask anyone within 10 to 12 miles from Anaheim, we all can hear it.

For me it’s fun and friendly sound at 9:30 nightly, just hearing those fireworks brings a smile to my face.

The imagination of Walt Disney was unparalled at the time back in the 1950’s choosing the orange groves of  Anaheim as the site for his dream. A place for fun, families and amusement which continues to be a global attraction.  Since then Anaheim has grown to one of the largest cities in California, actually 10th in the state by population within about 52 square miles.

Today Anaheim is also known as home to the Angels baseball and the Might Ducks among others. 

If you lived in Anaheim you would be about 15 miles from John Wayne Aiport in Santa Ana and about 30 miles west of  LAX, Los Angeles Int’l Airport.

  • Home prices today in Anaheim, CA average about $303,000 for a 3 bedroom 2 bath home, 1,400 square feet.
  • Data source is based on closed sales for the first six months of 2009 from the SoCal Multiple Listing Service of 1155 transfered properties in Anaheim. 
  • It should be noted that although Anaheim Hills is located within the Cit of Anaheim, prices differ dramatically with a $541,000 average price for a 3 bedroom 3 bath home for the same period of time.
