Mission Viejo is the first master planned community. This means that each neighborhood was planned around schools, parks and shopping. Lake Mission Viejo offers 2 beaches, boat rentals and free summer concerts and movies. The Blue Ribbon Schools offer a variety of sports, a fully funded music program and the high schools offer the special International Baccalaureate Diploma. Named the safest city in 2007, Mission Viejo is a great place to call home!
