    Prepare for the Orange Crush!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a dreaded routine loathed by locals about every week of the year, from Monday to Friday-
    The Orange Crush, or simply it is referred to as "The Crush"! What is the Crush! It's a pesky traffic tie up that occurs roughly in the city of Orange but also affecting Anaheim , Santa Ana and Garden Grove in parts. Cars, trucks, vans and commercial vehicles are jammed in the morning route at the confluence of the 5, 22 and 57 freeways. It is recommended to pack some patience while traveling through here or just to simply avoid traveling M-F, from about 6 AM- 9 AM at this interchange. Sleep in or hang out at the coffee shop if you can before heading through here!

    Beware of Sinister Westminster- well...

    it is not so bad here. Just, when referring to the pristine, generally "beautiful" part of Orange county, Westminster is not the very first place one would consider. It is not very danergous here but does have more problems with crime than other cities, especially compared to one of her neighbors, Huntington Beach. Just avoid unecessarily hanging out here late night, especially in dark, isolated areas of course. Westminster has had its share of problems with South Asian gangs but a few local residential neighborhoods are affected by them. Major parts with town centers are generally safe. The various times I have happened to be here at night catching a bus connection, I have felt secure enough, so no reason to be very alarmed. I still encourage those who like to experience Vietnamese dining and culture to come.

    Orange County is known for many things, including the dreaded traffic jam known as the "crush". Actually, there are a few daily crushes on the freeways here but the infamous one occurs approximately in the city of Orange, where the 5, 57 and 22 freeways meet. Pack some patience if you are driving in the area! Check out the "crush" and other traffic pictures on the site below to see for yourself!
