It's no surprise that the city of Orange's early success was squeezed from the citrus fruits they were so famous for producing. By renting a home here, you will soon find that the city still takes a lot of pride in the industry that stimulated Orange's early growth in the 1880s. Today, this gorgeous area south of Los Angeles has much to offer for families of all sizes.
Of course, today Orange has many more modern amenities to offer home renters. The Block, for instance, is a shopping complex near the University of California Irvine's medical campus, and is one of the city's most popular shopping destinations. While renters nearby will be impressed by the extensive retail options, Orange residents with families appreciate the entertainment options, like an AMC movie theater, a skate park and a bowling alley.
The town really took off in the 1880s, just after the Southern Pacific Railroad built a depot in Orange. The Exchange Fine Arts Gallery was originally the Sunkist Orange County Fruit Exchange when it was built in the 1920s. During the mid-1990s, it was revamped to exhibit an Italian-Renaissance style and eventually transformed into an art gallery. Living here, you'll be close to Watson Drugs & Soda Fountain, an Orange city landmark. The pharmacy and burger joint was built in 1899, and you might even recognize the interior from movies like "That Thing You Do", "The Stepford Children" and "Cannonball Run".
