Welcome to Irvine!

Irvine, CA is a city like no other: a master-planned balance of urban living and preserved natural space at the center of Orange County in coastal Southern California.

Reflecting the visionary spirit of its University of California campus, Irvine is not only a great place to vacation, it's an exceptional destination for meetings and events, a multicultural home to over 100 company headquarters.

At the same time, Irvine is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the country, ranked "America's Safest Big City" by the FBI since 2005 and less than half an hour from some of California's best-loved attractions, including Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Disneyland Park® and Knott's Berry Farm.

If you love sunny days and mild nights, world-class shopping, hiking and biking, and diverse dining, find it all at the center of Orange County: Irvine, California.
