Laguna Hills is one the best locations I've ever lived in, having Ralphs right across the street is very convenient, my visits there consist of quick snack stops, groceries and occasionally the pharmacy, offering great customer service I leave the grocery store in a reasonable amount of time.

Sometimes when gas is trouble i tend to go to Target (because they have everything you could ever need!) has a positive impact with the schedule and gas!

Also a quick work out at LA Fitness after Target won't hurt anybody especially since its right across the street and usually empty in the mornings!

I've taken vacations in the US since 2011 and finally moved to Laguna Hills, CA on September 2013. This city is the most peaceful and safest city I have ever lived in. If you value your privacy and peace- this is the place to be. This city isn't a party scene since it is the home of a lot of retired senior citizens but I enjoy the peach and quiet. It is at the heart of Irvine Spectrum, Krispy Kreme in Mission Viejo and minutes away from the Pacific Coast Highway beaches and hiking trails such as Laguna Beach, Top of the World, Newport Beach, Dana Point, Peter's Canyon, etc..

The weather here is usually quite warm. The summer here can get into the triple digits. I grew up in Ireland, so I am much more of a fan of low 70s and cooler weather. I know this is somewhat out of the norm though. I still love the beach and going there, I guess I have simply always been more sensitive to the heat. Other than than, the winter can get pretty cold. This year I believe the coldest night was at 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

As for natural disasters, we have been in an ongoing drought for quite some time. In the hotter months, wildfires are definitely something that is unfortunately quite frequent. Earthquakes do happen since we are right along a big fault line, but a big one has not happened, at least that I know of, in the recent past.
