Seal Beach Reviews

29 reviews
All Categories
I have nothing but positive things to say about my town! Small town beach community with the convenience of being centrally located between Orange County and Los Angeles. Schools are top notch and the community very close knit that offers many events. Our tiny Main Street and surrounding shopping centers have amazing options for restaurants and bars. Cost of living is a little higher than average but the benefits of living close to the beach make up for the extra costs.
Review Seal Beach
Seal Beach is a family friendly, safe, quiet, community involving city.
With Cal State Long Beach right around the corner this is a great city to live! Very pleasant & peaceful it makes it very nice to come home and get your work done, with no nonsense noise, partying and loud distractions to take your focus away from your work.
Seal Beach is an adorable little town. It is very closely-knit and in a beautiful location. The communal aspects of Seal Beach, such as the parades and beach events, create a family-friendly environment for people of all ages.
