I got it as I lived there for 5 years and also you pass that RV park on the 5. I never considered Irvine particularly famous tho and wouldn't have gotten it otherwise.
Also - shoe peg corn was described as "popular". Popular with who?
Got final by means of a total WAG.
I agree it's difficult to pick something distinguishing about Irvine other than UC Irvine ("Zot!"). A city of 200,000+ awash in the Southern California metropolis. In most states, it would be a big deal.
As for the RV park, I recognized it on an HGTV "House Hunters"-style RV show a month or two ago, although even there they simply said it was south of Los Angeles.
