Living in Brea

Brea is a relatively small town located in northern Orange County and sits just south of Los Angeles. Popularly known for its incredible art program, Brea is also commonly visited for its great shopping centers.


The Brea Olinda Unified School Districtis an education destination for many families because of the options, great teachers and fantastic programs.

The area also has many preschools for younger families to choose from. The school district has multiple resources for children and parents alike! There is more than enough information to figure out how to enroll your children, advice on how to help them and tips on how to get involved!


The real estate in Brea is for the most part remodeled and on the upscale side. The homes are beautiful and the neighborhoods are known for being safe. Many families like to settle down in Brea because the community is calm, it has access to great shopping and dining, and the schools are fantastic. The housing market is competitive, but there is something for everyone.

Brea is filled with lots of open space and great parks for weekend activities! Brea is also home to the Birch Hills Golf Course and a community pool for those hot summer days. During the summers, Brea hosts concerts in the park on Wednesday evenings. There’s also a Summerfest at the beginning of each June where residents and visitors can experience great bands, delicious festival food and fun rides and games for the whole family! Aside from the annual events, Brea has great opportunities for children and adults looking to get involved in the arts or in sports!


Brea has become increasingly popular over the last ten years, and much of that popularity is thanks to the Brea Mall. With over 150 stores and dining options, the Brea Mall is certainly a shopping destination. Downtown Brea has also recently been redeveloped, so many visitors and residents like to spend their time in this area, exploring the boutiques and stopping at local cafes.
