Los Cerritos is a small Suburban area near Long Beach CA. It is very easy to find something to do in this town! If you are traveling or just adventuring the town; there are exciting restaurants, community events, and amazing shopping centers available to keep you busy! My personal Favorite is the Los Cerritos Shopping Center, it has been upgraded, with several different retail stores, an upgraded theater, and best of all The Cheesecake Factory is a now open at the center! Hope you stop by!

The places here are fine. The town center is big and the movie theater has a lot of movie options to watch from. Overall, it is a fine city.
Los Cerritos is a friendly and clean community. Although it's a small city, we do have lots of Asian foods and small resternants near each other. Our public Cerritos library is one of the best libraries.
