Hey, guess what, Orange County is a good place to live if you want to live in a suburb. Did we really need a study to tell us that? Well, one did anyway--Coldwell Banker has just released its Best Places to Live For Suburbanites, with rankings based on "a range of attributes, such as access to suburban amenities (grocery stores, banks, etc.), proximity to good schools, commuting by car and community safety." Most of the Best Places to Live For Suburbanites are in New Jersey and Michigan, but coming in at number nine is Rossmoor just east of Long Beach: "Living in Orange County means being only minutes from the coast and a short drive from Los Angeles. Families here also enjoy the Rossmoor Park Community Center and local shopping at the Rossmoor Shopping Village." Sounds exciting. In fact, the top three best suburbs in California are all in Orange County--there's also Coto de Caza (famed for its Real Housewives franchise) and Villa Park (surrounded by Orange).
