Orange County, officially the County of Orange, is located in the Los Angeles metropolitan area in the state of California, covers 948 square miles (2,460 km2) and has a population of 3.2 million inhabitants, making it the 3rd most populous county in California, the 6th most populous in the U.S., and more populous than 21 states in the United States. Although mostly suburban, it is the 2nd most densely populated county in the state, behind San Francisco County. Each of the county's 3 most populous cities, Anaheim, Santa Ana (the county seat), and Irvine has a population exceeding 300,000. Huntington Beach, the 4th most populous city, has a population of slightly under 200,000 people. 6 cities are on the Pacific coast, including Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente (photo below).
Orange County is included in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county has 34 incorporated cities. Older cities like Santa Ana, Anaheim, Orange and Fullerton have traditional downtowns dating back to the 19th century, while newer commercial developments or edge cities stretch along I-5 between Disneyland and Santa Ana and between South Coast Plaza and the Irvine Business Complex, and cluster at Irvine Spectrum. Although single-family homes make up the dominant landscape for most of the county, Northern and Central Orange County is relatively more urbanized and dense as compared to those areas beyond Irvine, which are less dense, though still contiguous and primarily suburban rather than exurban.

The area's warm Mediterranean climate and 42 miles (68 km) of year-round beaches attract millions of tourists annually. Huntington Beach is a hot spot for sunbathing and surfing; nicknamed Surf City, U.S.A., it is home to many surfing competitions. The Wedge, at the tip of the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, is one of the most famous body surfing spots in the world. Southern California surf culture is prominent in Orange County's beach cities.
