I came to Laguna Hills to attend college at the Laguna College of Art and Design. I moved here from a small horse town in San Diego county called Ramona. I loved the atmosphere in Ramona but I honestly will never go back, I don't even want to leave the Laguna area ever or at least for several more years. It's beautiful and so much is around me. all sorts of stores and restaurants are now up to a ten minute drive away, where as while I lived in Ramona all those things were mostly a thirty minute to forty minute drive. I love the weather here and how close I am to the gorgeous beaches. I got a part time job pretty quickly and it is great. The people and community are very friendly and helpful too. It's just somewhat expensive to rent apartments here but other than that I have no complaints at all.

The city of Laguna Hills is fun and diverse. Beaches, malls, parks, movie theaters, and lots of restaurants are in close proximity. The atmosphere is friendly and I would choose to live in this city again if I had to choose
