I believe it.... I grew up right over the hill from those cities...... Irvine and Mission Viejo are quite nice (and yes, very safe-feeling and family oriented).Gas Man said:Safest and most dangerous cities
The following are the safest and most dangerous cities with populations over 75,000, according to Morgan Quitno Press.
4. Mission Viejo, Calif.
9. Lake Forest, Calif.
13. Irvine, Calif.
I was surprised that Columbia, SC wasn't on the most dangerous list... Sheesh, I was more scared in some areas of that city than I EVER was in Atlanta.
