Renter's guide to Garden Grove, CA

Located in Northern Orange County, Garden Grove is a city and suburb of Los Angeles. With a widely mixed population, it ranks among the top 50 most diverse suburbs in California. Despite having a more urban feel than other nearby suburbs, it retains a sense of community, and as a result, it’s popular with both families and young professionals.

Garden Grove has a population of 174,812 and is among the top 10 principal cities in the LA metropolitan area. While large, neighboring Anaheim has almost twice its population, other nearby cities such as Irvine and Santa Ana also have larger populations. It has an area of around 18 sq. miles, giving it a medium to high population density for the area. Compared to LA proper however, it’s more than 20 times smaller, and far less crowded.

Downtown LA is around 33 miles northwest of Garden Grove and can typically be reached within 40 to 60 minutes. Various Orange County employment hubs are also close, with Irvine about 14 miles southeast, and Newport Beach around 14 miles south. Travel in any direction is facilitated by the Garden Grove Freeway (State Route 22), which crosses the city west to east and connects to Interstate 5 (LA — San Diego).

Garden Grove enjoys sunshine year round, low levels of rainfall, and no snow. July is generally the warmest month, with highs of around 82°F, while January typically sees lows of around 46°F. There’s very little rainfall throughout the summer, and most of the 13 inches of annual rainfall falls between December and March. Proximity to the coast means that temperatures don’t generally get as high as more inland areas of South California, which can be quite arid.

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.
