Active Adults’ Guide to Irvine
Irvine is a master-planned community in California’s Orange County, but it once was a mass of land devoted to ranching and farming. In 1960, the Irvine Company sold 1,000 acres of this land to the University of California for their planned Irvine campus. By 1970, the Irvine Company began plans to transform undeveloped land near the UCI campus into a master-planned community. Irvine eventually became California’s fastest-growing city, and is now home to well over 250,000 people.
