Placentia’s name is derived from the Latin word for “pleasant,” and that’s just the type of lifestyle you can expect from this friendly community. Placentia was named an “All American City” in 1971. It has always been known as a family-oriented city that serves as a bedroom community for Los Angeles and Orange County’s more populated cities.

Placentia is home to two high schools, many youth athletics programs and several annual events, such as the Heritage Festival and Parade. It provides a laid-back lifestyle and a family-friendly setting, tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of North Orange County while still being closely located to all of the area’s great amenities.

Placentia is ideally located in between Orange, Yorba Linda, Anaheim, Fullerton and Brea. Cal State Fullerton is just up the road, and Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, Anaheim Stadium and the Honda Center are all a very short drive away. Placentia truly offers the best of both worlds.

Placentia has always had a strong real estate market with most homes falling in the upper-middle price range for North Orange County. It has numerous neighborhoods that you can call home. Atwood and La Jolla are two of the more well-known communities that you may want to look at if searching for a family home in Placentia.
