Located in Orange County, Laguna Woods, California is a lush haven close to the Pacific Coast. Predominately comprised of retirees, Laguna Woods offers a wide variety of things to see and do for tourists and residents of all ages. Laguna Woods is known as one of California’s oldest and newest cities. Though the history of the area dates back for generations, Laguna Woods as it is now known was not incorporated until 1999.
Today, Laguna Woods is operated by a “council-manager” system of government comprised of a City Manager and a team of well-qualified professionals. It seems apparent that the system is doing its job, as crime rates remain low, median home prices remain moderate, and the population of retirees makes up 90 percent of the population that sits just under 19,000. With a prime location between Los Angeles and San Diego, Laguna Woods is also convenient to many area attractions and conveniences.
