Jobs in Orange, California, United States

Location and Population. Orange is a city with an estimated population of around 140,000 inhabitants in 2016, located just north of Santa Ana, the county seat of Orange County. Around half of the population is Non-Hispanic White (49.5%). The remainder is comprised mainly of Hispanics (32.8%), and Non-Hispanic Asians (13.6%). Twenty-five percent is foreign-born. The median household income is high and so is the cost of living. Unemployment is relatively low, but the poverty rate has increased since 2000 and is now relatively high.

Origins. Orange was planned and built around a plaza by two Los Angeles attorneys, in a location with access to water for irrigating citrus orchards. A town was incorporated in 1888, and grew steadily until the 1950s, with agriculture forming the backbone of the economy.

Economy. Construction of freeways connecting downtown Los Angeles with outlying areas led to a real estate boom, and development of new housing areas to the east of the town center. One of the busiest interchanges in Orange County is located at the junction of Interstate 5 with two state highways on the southwestern edge of Orange, creating what locals call the “Orange Crush” during rush hour each day. Nevertheless, many residents still choose to live there and commute by car to other towns or LA to work. Hospitals and the University of California Irvine Medical Center are the main employers in the city itself.

Character. Like most of Orange County, the city of Orange is affluent and politically conservative. Although traces of its agricultural roots have largely disappeared, the city is noted for having preserved much of its architectural heritage in the Old Town Orange Historic District. Housing is mostly single family units. Although still affordable relative to some other commuter cities in the county, the cost of housing is financially challenging for young families. Older neighborhoods that hearken back to the county’s historical roots are a good choice for newcomers. There is a wide choice for shopping, entertainment and out-of-doors activities, and the city’s location offers equally easy access to beaches, theme parks and other inland attractions.

Vintage Orange Food Tour: One of several walking tours in Old Town, presenting the history of Orange as patrons nibble their way through downtown restaurants and shops.

Irvine Regional Park: A local park with pony rides, a miniature train, a small zoo, and play and picnic areas for the whole family, and trails for hikers in the back country desert.
Hart Park: A large local park with sports fields, pool, picnic and barbecue areas, lots of hiking and biking trails, wooded areas, summer concerts, a growing homeless population and a discreet police presence.
Peters Canyon Regional Park: Well-maintained walking and hiking trails at all fitness levels.
Plaza Square Park: Centerpiece of the Old Town, with benches, trees and a fountain, and a variety of antique shops, clothing boutiques and casual and upscale restaurants nearby. Used by the Veterans for Wednesday evening meetings and retiring of the flag, and for holiday celebrations in the city throughout the year.
Spectator Sports: Access to games of two professional teams which play just across the Santa Ana River in Anaheim – the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (baseball) and the Anaheim Ducks (ice hockey).
