Tips for Renting in Garden Grove, CA

Moving to Garden Grove from LA is a great way to reduce your living costs, as the cost of living is typically lower here than in LA proper, and also most other cities in Orange County. The downside is that there are fewer job opportunities within the city itself. However, many residents commute to nearby employment hubs of Irvine and Newport Beach. If you do plan to commute, it’s worth noting that public transport links can be poor, with journeys of just 4 miles often taking in excess of an hour. As a result, many residents use a private vehicle.

The neighborhoods to the west of the city are generally considered the safest, cleanest and friendliest, but are also the most expensive. However, the vast majority of the city is safe, with below average crime rates and little to no gang activity. Most of the population is middle class, and the area doesn’t suffer the same crime and gang problems as other parts of the LA metropolitan area.
