City of Tustin

Encompassing over 11 square miles in the heart of Orange County, the City of Tustin (population 83,000 and growing) offers an exceptional quality of life complemented by an ideal Southern California climate. Just 37 miles southeast of Los Angeles, this vibrant City of Trees is known for its low crime rate, superior schools, quality neighborhoods, premium parks and recreation facilities, and cultural and entertainment amenities.

Tustin is conveniently located at the crossroads of the 5 and 55 Freeways, making numerous regional attractions—beaches, performing arts centers, major sports venues, and recreational facilities—easily accessible. Hillside areas offer sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific Coast and Saddleback Mountains, and the City’s picturesque “Old Town” neighborhood, born in the late 1800s, is currently experiencing a renaissance, with a number of new developments and improvements on the horizon.

Combining an historic sense of place with an eye toward the future, Tustin is home to a diverse industrial commercial base that includes flexible technology centers, computer component development, and manufacturing. The Tustin Legacy project is developing the shuttered Tustin Marine Corps Air Station into residential and commercial areas that are designed to connect business and people to neighborhoods and pathways, open space and trails, local history and educational centers.

The District at Tustin Legacy, the Tustin Market Place, the Tustin Auto Center, and Old Town Tustin are all bustling centers of the City’s cultural and economic activity. A weekly farmer’s market and numerous city-sponsored annual events, including the Tustin Street Fair and Chili Cook-Off and the long-running Tustin Tiller Days, contribute to Tustin’s sense of community and connection.
