I love Cypress because it is a safe environment for everyone. All of its citizens live in peace and harmony. If anything comes in the way of such tranquility, neighbors are sure to check up on each other and make sure that everyone is safe, even those that do not necessarily live in their homes. All the families here are welcoming and care a lot about each other. I am a junior in high school and I find that Cypress is a wonderful environment to grow up in and fully enjoy its duality with both recreational and urban features. There are many well-maintained parks, along with restaurants and a diverse selection of stores to browse. It is a very interesting place that cultivates the liveliness of everyone living there.

Cypress is a small suburban city that is safe, quiet, and relatively affordable. Nearby schools are very good and shopping locations are convenient. It is also fairly close to the beach, which I particularly enjoy. Cypress also contains the main corporate buildings for several large companies, which provide decent job opportunities.
Grew up in this city and I love it. The schools are great, academically and athletically. There isn’t much of a night life since it’s a smaller city, but there are great restaurants owned by small business owners and the community is great!
