Nestled into the valleys of the Chino Hills, Yorba Linda soaks up sunshine in the mild Mediterranean-like climate. Now a town of 68,000, originally the land was part of a huge Spanish land grant given to Jose Antonio Yorba in 1834. In the early 1900s, the area was covered with lemon and orange groves. Richard M. Nixon, the 37th President of the United States, was born there in 1913 and his Presidential Museum and Library is located there.
