Irvine is one of the country's largest urban planned communities, incorporated in December, 1971. It is located in Orange County, just minutes to attractions like Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach. This 46-square mile city is home to approximately 200,000 residents and the University of California, Irvine, the Orange County Center of University of Southern California, Irvine Campus of Alliant International University, Concordia University and Irvine Valley College. The city prides itself on being one of the cleanest and safest cities in Southern California - the FBI rated it one of the safest cities in the U.S. in 2005. Irvine is conveniently located near two major freeways and the John Wayne Airport, making it easily accessible to the spectacular beaches of southern California, championship golf courses, wilderness areas and parks and family theme parks. Irvine has its own planned system of nature preserves, parks and trails (there are 32 miles of off-road bicycle trails and 126 miles of on-road bicycle lanes provided in the City today.) Irvine is also a shopper's paradise, with dozens of chic boutiques and shops, fine restaurants and outdoor entertainment. The city of Irvine is also host to the Global Village Festival, a multifaceted festival that features international cuisine, live entertainment, children's activities, a world marketplace and more.
