The name “Yorba Linda” means “beautiful Yorba” in Spanish, named appropriately after the gorgeous 62,000 acres of land awarded to Spanish explorer Jose Yorba in 1769. What began as a small farming community of 4,000 people quickly grew to a modern, active neighborhood with around 70,000 residents today. Despite the vast growth, Yorba Linda never lost its small town charm. It’s this unique character and convenient location that makes Yorba Linda such a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
Consistently rated as one of the safest cities in Southern California, Yorba Linda is home to family-oriented neighborhoods, excellent schools, and friendly residents. The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District consists of 14 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, 3 private schools and 3 other schools. From preschools to adult education institutions, every school offers a unique element focused on providing the best education to each individual student. Yorba Linda also supports an expanding market in a business-friendly environment, allowing its residents to thrive as the highest median income earners in all of Orange County. With its numerous opportunities for growth and emphasis on community, Yorba Linda is the ideal place to raise a family.
Along with friendly people and outstanding value, Yorba Linda provides a high quality of life for its residents with an abundance of sites to see and things to do. The most notable site in the city is the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. This nine acres campus pays homage to the birthplace of our 37th president with beautiful gardens, an extensive library, and rotating historical exhibits.
