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!
Review Artesia
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.
I have lived in Artesia pretty much my whole life. It has always been a safe neighborhood. Artesia is an extremely diverse city and I think that is what I love about it the most. Every year, the city hold its diversity festival and the whole town gets together. I would say it's definitely family friendly.
