I have lived in Artesia my entire life, and am thoroughly pleased with the city I live in. For the most part the people are incredibly kind, and it is very diverse. Artesia offers several places that allow the residents a place to leisure at during their spare time, and a place to hangout with friends. For the past few years the city has been making many improvements to try an attract more people to visit Artesia. One of the gems in Artesia is Little India Town, where you can get some of the most delicious Indian food. Also, at night Little India is especially beautiful to walk through because of the new street lights that were put just a few years ago.
Artesia is a great little city right in the middle of Cerritos. With the recent work being done, the city looks more clean and renovated. Artesia Park is bustling with children and families on the weekends playing and watching sports, creating a welcoming family friendly environment. They are also rebuilding the Artesia Library so we can look forward to that very soon!
