    Local Businesses at Laguna Hills: The stores in my area are fairly convenient. I can obtain any product I would need within a 5 mile radius. There's a variety of small family owned stores and big national chains. The restaurants are convenient and fairly priced. Overall I enjoy living in this area.

    Health & Fitness at Laguna Hills: Most people in this area are quite active. Many people run or ride bikes. Also many people hike and play golf/tennis. Hospitals are abundant and are of high quality. I dislike the emergency room because they are sometimes not helpful to people with minor issues. The urgent care facilities are lacking in service and patient care.

    Weather at Laguna Hills: Winter is cold and rainy, but you don't need to bundle up too much. Spring is moderately warm. Some days are cold and cloudy while others are hot and humid. Summer is quite hot, but it's not unbearable since the beach air cools it down. Fall has mostly cool weather starting around November.
