Orange County was founded in 1889. The name “Orange” was named so the county would sound like a semi tropical, Mediterranean region to people from the east coast. The tourism and service industries began to dominate the local economy with the opening of Disneyland theme park in 1955 located in Anaheim.  This made Orange County an international tourist destination, increasing population and jobs. Since the success of the Disneyland park they decided to open a second park called Disney California Adventure in 2001. In 2018 Disneyland parks had approximately 18.6 million visitors making it the second most visited theme park in the world. Orange County is also known for beautiful cites with beaches, including Huntington Beach with a famous surfing museum. Newport Beach has a boat-filled harbor and sits opposite Balboa Peninsula.  Laguna Beach has tide pools and ocean fronts and Crystal Cove State Park.
