The community of Los Alamitos is extremely close and tight-knit. Everyone is connected in some way, either through the public schools or through various community events. There is a modest population of about 30,000 residents, and this small town is filled with a mix of franchise and local businesses. Los Alamitos is an overall safe town, as most residents are honest and cooperative.
Its a great place to raise a family. Not to close to the big city, but not to far either. The schools there are great, and there are plenty of opportunities to be a part of the community. If you get a chance, stop by the Katella Deli for a Ruben, then hit the bakery for some tasty desserts on your way out.
