    Acton Reviews

    2 reviews
    Small town country life hidden right next to Los Angeles. You can be Downtown LA or to the beach in an hour but still enjoy the wide open spaces of the country. People are friendly, properties are big and you'll never struggle to find a parking space. Perfect for animal lovers and horse or dirt bike enthusiasts.

    Acton is awesome country living! A small town vibe and everyone is friendly. The 49er is fun and a great place to eat and watch bands!
