It's close to surrounding cities, like Stanton, Cypress, Buena Park, Cerritos, etc. and is a close drive (15 min) to Westminster and Garden Grove for food! Although it may look kind of scary to live in at times, its a very simple place. Grew up here most of my life.

I love my neighborhood and if I had the chance to live her again, I would. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming and are willing to help each other when in need. My car was broken into two days after I had gotten my license. Roger, my neighbor from across the street, saw me frantically searching my car and came over to help. Not only did he calm my nerves, he also waited until the police arrived and helped me complete an official statement since I did not know how to do one beforehand. His kindness and compassion helped me see the true good in my neighborhood.
Not a big fan of heat but it could be worse elsewhere. However, I do have to mention we are in a severe drought. This is alarming because people are not paying attention to the seriousness of this problem! This is a national and state issue that requires major changes to our behavior ; for instance, spending less time in the shower which is not terrible and should be done by all no matter what.
