Acton Reviews

3 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.
Review Acton
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!
Great small town to raise a family or retire to after many years of hard work. The town is very small with only 9,000 residents living there. The town has a western theme so if you are into cowboys Acton is the place for you. Acton is very safe with a very very low crime rate.
