Here are the top stories in Orange County today:

  1. The two best cities to live in Southern California are…? A new report from Fortune of the 25 Best Places to Live for Families List two Southern California cities in the Top 25: Tustin (#12) and San Marcos (#20). Nestled in the heart of Orange County, Tustin offers great jobs, schools and entertainment with ‘world class shopping and dining’, Fortune said. San Marcos, a suburb of San Diego, has a population of nearly 100,000 people. It offers top-rated schools and a ‘year-round mild climate’. View the full list here.
  2. The Orange County Auto Show in full swing at the Anaheim Convention Center after a two-year pandemic hiatus. The OC Auto Show, which runs from Thursday, September 29 to Sunday, October 2 at the Anaheim Convention Center, will showcase the latest models of “cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, electric vehicles, exotics and more.” It’s also National Drive Electric Week, so visitors can ride electric vehicles with professional drivers “to experience the rapid acceleration, tight handling and performance of a variety of new all-electric vehicles from Chevy, Ford, Kia, Nissan, and VW.” Let’s go!

  3. Starting Saturday, power for thousands of OC residents in some parts of Orange County will come from 100 percent renewable energy sources. Buena Park, Fullerton, Huntington Beach and Irvine have all made OC Power Authority their green energy supplier. People in those communities will all automatically pay a slightly higher rate for planet-saving renewables. Enrolling or unsubscribing from the program can be done in person or online until December.
