Mission Viejo -- It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This
Article submitted by Angie Weeks

Passersby gazing at the picturesque sprawl of tree-blanketed buildings easily could mistake this place for a quaint hillside village. But behind all this scenic splendor is one of California's prime models of suburban sophistication - Mission Viejo. If Orange County has a hub, it's arguably this thriving community. Named one of the nation's best cities by Money Magazine, Mission Viejo is the ideal place to live, work, and play.

Following a steady course set by its dynamic master plan, Mission Viejo is an energetic community highlighted by acres of pristine subdivisions, 43 gorgeous parks, a 41,000 square foot library, numerous California Distinguished Schools and National Blue Ribbon Schools, Mission Viejo High's powerhouse football team, the Diablos, a new city hall, and picturesque Lake Mission Viejo, the largest residential and recreational lake in the Southland. The community also has the honor of being one of the safest cities in the United States.

For business owners and professionals, Mission Viejo scores exceptionally high in the accessibility department. A total of five freeway exits connect this exquisitely planned community with the rest of the world. Since the vast majority of local businesses are conveniently situated within two miles of the freeway, reaching your chosen destination is a breeze.

Finding the perfect location to launch or expand a business is equally convenient. Office space abounds from one end of the city to the other. From two-story buildings to amenity-packed mid-rises, Mission Viejo offers the serious business professional a wealth of options. Retailers in particular will discover no end to the available choices, with possibilities running the gamut from small shopping centers to one of southern California's most prestigious malls, The Shops at Mission Viejo.

Mission Viejo's vigorous commercial presence offers a generous helping of visual appeal, as well. In fact, it's often difficult to tell a Mission Viejo industrial park from the recreation kind.

For the shopping pleasure of residents and visitors alike, the bustling city boasts an extensive menu of choices highlighted by the world-renowned Shops at Mission Viejo Mall and the popular Kaleidoscope Entertainment Center nearby to the South. Dozens of smaller shopping centers grace the community, as well.

Of course, it's the people themselves that provide the heartbeat of any city. And the residents of Mission Viejo keep that beat going loud and strong. Known for their civic pride, the city's locals carry on a long standing tradition of community involvement. Their dedication and hard work have enriched the city beyond measure, providing the impetus for everything from educational improvements to renowned public events such as the Fourth of July Street Fair. Add to all this the warmth and friendliness that Mission Viejo residents are known for, and the city truly shines as a jewel among Southern California communities.
