Homes

Ortega features a wonderful variety of designs for anyone looking to invest in a new home.

Where to Live

Ortega is split by a section of U.S. Route 17 called Roosevelt Boulevard. Old Ortega, to the east of Roosevelt, features mid-to-large size, turn-of-the-century homes, many concentrated on the waterfront of Grand Avenue. It has a grid pattern that it makes it easy to navigate and forms the contours of this historical area. To the west, Ortega Forest features newer construction with single-family homes.

Where to Eat

Cafes and local restaurants are concentrated along Corinthian and Ortega Boulevards. Just across the bridge on Roosevelt Boulevard are several more restaurants ranging from fast food favorites to local diners to Asian cuisine.
