Yorba Linda





Yorba Linda is a wealthy suburban city with population of 64,234 in northeastern Orange County, California, approximately 13 miles (21 km) northeast of Downtown Santa Ana, and 40 miles (64 km) southeast of Downtown Los Angeles.

Its most famous resident was Richard Nixon, who was born there; however, his father moved the family away before Yorba Linda became a city. The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is therefore probably the most well-known and visited site in the city.

Yorba Linda is known for having large residential lots as well as 30 horse trails,[4] which are 100 miles (160 km) in aggregate length.

In 2005 CNN ranked Yorba Linda 21st among the best places in the U.S. to live. Similarly, in an article by CNN Money, Yorba Linda was one of the richest U.S. cities and the highest in Orange County as reported by the Census data, showing median household income of over $120K: "Among towns of between 65,000 and 250,000 in population, Yorba Linda, California, where six-figure incomes are the rule, had the highest median income at $121,075".
