Los Alamitos Reviews
I love Los Al, I lived and grew up there for most of my life. It is in the best location, close to the city but not close enough to experience the pollution - and it is right near the best beaches. There is also great Italian, Asian, American, African, and Mexican food around the town - the best ones are Paul's Place and Habit Grill. There is great shopping and schools - but there are some snobs in Rossmore, so watch out what you say if you decide to enroll your kid in Lee Elementary - those moms are vicious. However, I loved it there, it will always be my home town - I know it is very expensive to live there but it is worth it.
I like Los Alamitos because it is a small suburb right outside of the Los Angeles County, and near Long Beach. The Los Alamitos City Council does a very good job of providing activities and classes for all ages and all genders. The school system exceeds standards on many levels such as academics and some sports. I would like to change the diversity in Los Alamitos because it is predominantly white but the pros outweigh the cons, for sure.
Though it is a nice and small city, as an African American woman I've noticed a lot of glares directed at me when taking a neighborhood walk. There are times when people would cross the street while I'm walking on the sidewalk and just a lot of weird stares in general. Because the city is pretty much clean and doesn't have a lot of crime, the police look for anything and everything to pull someone over. Though it is a nice city, I know as a Black woman to not let my guard down.
