  • Tourist AttractionsFor starters, Lakewood is ideally situated in the greater Los Angeles/Orange Country metro area. Just minutes away from Disneyland to the east, beautiful Manhattan and Hermosa Beach to the west, Huntington Beach to the south, and Los Angeles proper to the north, it would hard to ever say there is nothing to do in Lakewood. Nearby Long Beach has the Aquarium of the Pacific and the famous cruise ship RMS Queen Mary. From Long Beach you can take the Catalina Express out to Catalina Island for an incredible day trip.
  • Art and CultureThe best time to explore the arts and culture scene in Lakewood is during the Pan Am Fiesta, held in Mayfair Park in May. This event was developed to bridge the gap between the diverse culture of North and South America and one can find a variety of art exhibits, poetry contests, and dance performances. Nearby San Pedro has an annual and growing international film festival. The Lollipop Lane Holiday Craft Boutique happens each October with displays, crafts, and exhibit booths. It's a short drive to the sports, theatre, and art venues of the Lakewood metro area.
  • School System A large portion of the population of Lakewood is made up of families with kids. The city has an extensive school system and can be divided into four school districts - Long Beach United, Paramount Unified, Bellflower Unified and ABC Unified. Each of these districts has several elementary, middle and high schools. Apart from academics, these schools have the required infrastructure for extra curricular activities like athletics. Additionally, some pre-schools are also present for your little ones.
  • WeatherIt's not all sunshine and easy breezes in the L.A. basin, but it's close. The rainy season lasts from late October through April, but even then, most days are clear. Lakewood is far enough from the ocean that it can get hot in the summer, especially late September and October when the Santa Ana winds are more frequent.
