Yorba Linda is not at all what you think it is. The city motto is "Land of gracious Living" It is more rural but close to everything, medical, transportation, schools. Its only about 5 miles from Cal State Fullerton. Places to eat, about 40 miles to Newport Beach, Los Angeles.
It is a great place to live and work. I grew up in Fullerton about 4 miles from Yorba Linda. I went to high school with kids from Yorba Linda. I have an office in Fullerton and I can help you if you need help. I love Yorba Linda, mellow low key, low crime. Home of the Nixon Library.
