      While visiting several different cities in California. I had a perfect peace about Brea Ca. So here we are. Close proximity to schools, shopping, restaurants, theaters, post office and churches. Easy access to highways, and airports. Not to mention thirty minutes from hiking mountains, cycling bike trails or listening to waves while relaxing on the beach. Wow! It was worth the move. The clean neat Brea community has phenomenal police, fireman and ambulance service. Everyone is kind, courteous and friendly. Near by Fullerton jr. college and nice healthy age range in the community from tikes to elderly. The community reaches out and sincerely helps one another. Awesome community service and classes, building to a healthy community both, body and mind. ie workout, dance computer, art, yoga, photography... you name it, fun classes for the entire family. Disneyland and Universal Studios near by too. There's never a dull moment. Or you can just relax by the pool, under a palm tree.
