Garden Grove is truly diverse. Many ethnicities live in this area, which allows for easy sharing of cultures- especially through food. For example, every summer there is a night market that is hosted at Asian Garden Mall. The combination of live music, vibrant vibes, and great food calls for a great time. Aside from that, there are an abundance of restaurants that feature other countries' food: Thai, Italian, Laotian, Indian, and the list goes on! All in all, Garden Grove is a great place to live as it is culturally diverse.

I have been a resident of Garden Grove in the suburb of Los Angeles, CA ever since I could remember. I have grown to love the city because of its warmth and everything that it has to offer to everyone despite your ethnicity, race, religion, gender, age, etc. I have come to think that this city is a place where you can feel at home all the time, despite where you're coming from. There are countless of schools in the Garden Grove Unified School District that are honorable and excel the standards required. Therefore, I would say that it is an environment where the families are able to feel safe at all times. Also, the diversity in Garden Grove is astonishing because it has one of the largest diversities out of other cities. Nonetheless, the city of Garden Grove is an excellent choice to reside in and it welcomes anyone at anytime!
I have lived in Garden Grove my entire life and so far have enjoyed living here. Garden Grove is truly a diverse community that allows local business to contribute to the diversity. Attending publics schools in this community has allowed to be further my education career while also learning skills in leadership and responsibility. However, throughout the years the affordability in this city has decreased, making it hard to plan a future life here. I hope Garden Grove continues being an enjoyable environment in order for me to make the sacrifice in continuing to live here.
