It's now the Land of Gracious Healthy Wealthy Getting Crowded Living!

A financial website ranked Los Angeles suburbs by which perform the best across various economic, social and quality-of-life categories, and Yorba Linda pops up on lists for highest-earning, fastest growth and highest healthcare coverage. Not that Yorba Linda (or any Orange County city) would like to be known as a suburb of LA, but can you guess which of those three lists had The Land of Gracious Living at No. 1?

According to NerdWallet.com:

Yorba Linda was the fifth and final city on Nerd Wallet's Highest-Earning LA Suburbs list, where La Cañada Flintridge was No. 1, but both of those tied for No. 3 for Highest Rate of Healthcare Coverage. Seal Beach finished fifth there, and Rancho Palos Verdes was numero uno.

Another Orange County city finished No. 1 on an LA suburbs list:

Meanwhile, Westminster came in fifth on a list of Most Ethnically Diverse LA Suburbs, where Gardena was No. 1. San Francisco-based Nerd Wallet used census data that shows Westminster is 37.9 percent white, 1.3 percent black or African-American, 48.9 percent Asian and 22.9 percent Hispanic.

The only lists where an Orange County city didn't even draw iron was Where Women Make More Than Men (Inglewood is No. 1) and--sad face--Most Educated (those eggheads in Manhattan Beach are tops).

I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life. For more info visit my user name link...........,

if you actually READ the article it was for the category was pertaining to "gender pay equality". It also seems a little skewed because women in El Monte make MORE than men.. Look

Christina Smith- The Yorba family owned the motorcycle/jet ski store in Riverside near the 15 freeway. Your family as well?

How many "best" lists did Anaheim make? You would think we aced ALL of them! After all, with the (Somewhere Else) Angels of Anaheim, and "Winchester Mystery House South" (aka The Convention Center) our hearts bursting with pride, should give us all strokes, right ?  Surely, our compulsive -spending Council can't be a tad WRONG about that, could they? Say it 'aint SO!!!

Good value on real estate no matter how puny the home.

Definitely, Tustin. It is a small town, multiracial, with more churches than congregation and more police men than citizens!!!!

I think a lot of OC residents don't view our towns as "LA suburbs," certainly not to the degree they were in the 1950s/60s postwar and "space race" years. Most of OC is economically independent from Los Angeles and a lot of people choose never to go there, and they do just fine. (Personally, I LIKE visiting LA, but it's certainly not a necessity.)
