    Housing at Laguna Hills: There are a lot of really nice neighbor hoods with massive beautiful houses. There are also some houses that aren't quite as big but still nice and pretty. There are some nice apartments that seem to be big and nice.
    • 5
    Crime & Safety at Laguna Hills: There doesn't seem to be much crime. Mostly just kids shoplifting. Occasionally there are burglaries in homes but I haven't heard about any of that lately.

    Weather at Laguna Hills: Its Southern California! Its very frequently sunny and warm and on the off days when it isn't its never too cold or rainy for long.
    • 5
    Local Businesses at Laguna Hills: There are stores all around. There's mom and pop shops and chain stores almost everywhere you look. We definitely have more chains and franchises than mom and pop.
