Irvine is a beautiful city in Orange County, California. Development of the master-planned town began in the 1960s with the layout of the land divided into separate residential townships with commercial districts in-between. Homes in some of the townships were built in a cohesive architectural style while others sported mixed styles. The community incorporated as a city in late 1971 and Irvine now encompasses about 65 square miles with a population of over 270,000 residents. A number of corporations are headquartered in the city, with many in the technology sector. Several institutions of higher education including the University of California, Irvine (the cities top employer), and campuses of Pepperdine University and California State University Fullerton also make Irvine their home.
The city of Irvine houses several museums including the Irving Museum, for impressionist paintings by local artists, the Museum of Woman, and the Pretend City Children’s Museum, an interactive museum full of fun activities. Other activities include hiking, biking or picnicking in one of the cities parks, golfing at the public golf courses, attending college sporting events at UC Irvine, and enjoying the nightlife of gastropubs, comedy clubs, bars, and restaurants. For shopping, there are numerous small, locally owned shops and boutiques along with the upscale shopping at Irvine Spectrum Center and nearby Fashion Island malls.
