Artesia Reviews

27 reviews
All Categories
Artesia so far has been a pretty good place to live in. There are plenty of neighborhoods full of family homes, along with both big and small businesses around. It's a decent distance between LA, Long Beach, and Orange County, so it's not TOO terrible if you have to commute. There is plenty to do and plenty to eat that can fulfill just about any craving you may have. I could see myself buying a home here after finishing school and getting a job with my degree.
Artesia is a nice small town with a lot of diversity. I like that there's many different types of restaurants to try (For example: Thai, Vietnamese, Asian fusion, Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, etc.). I would like to see more different cultures come together in town events.
Artesia is a very close and tight knit community. Artesia has a strong emphasis on encouraging the growth of small businesses which is why almost anywhere you go in Artesia, you will always find a unique compact shop. The streets are fairly small but you can still get by with a little patience.
