[Orange County is actually a great place to live. You have LA and SD close by but none of the problems that go along with either. There a bad parts and good parts, but overall, OC is a great place.
I suppose if you live there, it's nice... but there's no real reason to visit. The homes are certainly pretty to look at... but there's not much of anything interesting to do. Those of us who live in LA proper hate having to go down there. Traffic from hell and this weird punk-pop-skateboarder-rich-kid thing that they have going on.
On the upside... they do have some nice hockey equipment stores.
But anyway, let's not hijack the post. Pepperdine is in Malibu, which is not in Orange County.
