California, U.S.A.
Welcome to Tustin, California.
Tustin is a city in Orange County, located next to Santa Ana and Irvine. The city is part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area and is situated approximately 2 miles north of the John Wayne Airport. Incorporated in 1927, Tustin is today home to more than 78,000 people. The city is often referred to as The City of the Trees, and the explanation goes back many years. Situated on the floodplain of the Santa Ana River and the Santiago Creek, south and west of the Santa Ana Mountains, Tustin was founded in 1868 by farmer and entrepreneur Columbus Tustin. It took nearly 60 years before the mainly agricultural community grew to a modest 500 residents and finally incorporated as a city. At the time, it was called Tustin City and was basically a small shadow of the larger city Santa Ana. But people in Tustin loved their little haven of eucalyptus trees, the small-town community and the view of the rolling hills. The trees were what sparked the development of houses, shops and industrial sites, and in 1942, the US Navy established a base in the area. In 1951, the US Marine Corps took over the base, which until recently was used it as a helicopter air station. Albeit most citrus orchards have been given way to homes, schools and shopping centers, there is still a rich assortment of trees throughout the city. Hence, Tustin continues to flourish as the City of Trees. Tustin is still a city very fond of its history and small-town spirit. Old Town Tustin is perhaps the best way to get a glimpse into the days long gone, as there are many historic structures remaining in this neighborhood. Places to visit include the Knights of Pythias building that housed Tustin's first City Hall, and the Tustin Area Museum, which carries an extensive collection of historic artifacts, literature and photos. The most prominent landmark in the Tustin area is the 347 feet high Red Hill, a name that derives from when ancient volcanic activity deposited mercury in the sandstone hill. Tustin boasts beautiful hillside areas with sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific Coast and Saddleback Mountains, as well as vibrant commercial, industrial and residential districts. Thanks to the fact that Tustin is among the top 10% with start-ups and sole proprietors per capita, along with one of the shortest commutes in Southern California, the city was named by Forbes as one of the top 25 towns to live well in America. With activities for all ages and retail centers like The District at Tustin Legacy and The Tustin Market Place, this city has no shortage of things to offer in the dining, entertainment and shopping department. Both city and nearby regional parks offer a multitude of hiking and biking trails, and Tustin's central location and excellent transportation options allows residents to visit nearly every attraction in Southern California!
