Twenty miles southeast from downtown Los Angeles, Artesia, California is regarded as a “Gateway City” linking Los Angeles, Orange County and the Pacific Ocean. Originally part of Rancho Los Nietos granted to Spanish soldier Jose Manuel Lopez-Nieto in the 1780’s, the area which is now Artesia became part of Rancho Los Cerritos when Nieto died and passed the land to his daughter Maria. In 1843, Massachusetts born pioneer Jonathan Temple purchased Rancho Los Cerritos, raising cattle and various crops on the land. Temple went on to be one of the richest men in California for many years. Unfortunately, the worldwide financial panic of 1866 gutted the real estate market in California forcing Temple to sell Rancho Los Cerritos for about one dollar an acre. It wasn’t until the 1870’s that Artesia became a larger settlement, named for the naturally occurring Artesian wells which dotted the landscape. Not surprisingly, the presence of the wells made Artesia a perfect destination for farmers. By the early 20th century, Dutch and Portuguese dairy farmers had established Artesia and nearby Cerritos as one of the leading milk producing regions in the United States, so much so that Cerritos was known for many years as “Dairy Valley.” After World War II, however, pressure from real estate developers caused dairy farmers to move their businesses further east into Riverside County and north into the San Joaquin Valley. Today, Artesia is mainly a residential area with a diverse population.
It’s likely that an Artesia tutor will keep you ahead of the academic curve so you can take time away from the books to enjoy the exciting things to do in Artesia and the larger urban area. In October, Artesia comes alive for the annual International Street Fair and Diversity Festival held on Pioneer Boulevard. The festival features cultural performances, music and live entertainment as well as international cuisine, arts and crafts and a kid’s zone. The festival attracts over 40,000 visitors each year.
For more fun, it’s just a short drive east on Highway 91 to Knott’s Berry Farm in nearby Buena Park. The 160-acre amusement park dates to the 1930’s when Walter Knott began selling fried chicken on the property. As years passed he added more shops and constructed a replica western ghost town. By the 1960’s, Knott’s Berry Farm was more than just a quaint stopover as more rides and attractions were added. Today, the park has over 10,000 employees and caters to millions of visitors every year. Rides include roller coasters such as Ghost Rider and Silver Bullet and the Timber Mountain Log Ride. For families, Camp Snoopy offers rides and attractions geared toward younger children.
Artesia is also only a few miles from the “Happiest Place on Earth,” otherwise known as Disneyland, in nearby Anaheim. Built in the 1950’s by visionary entertainment entrepreneur Walt Disney, Disneyland and its sister park California Adventure have hosted tens of millions of visitors since 1955 when Disney opened the park. Attractions at Disneyland include Main Street, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. Iconic rides at Disneyland like the Matterhorn, Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones Adventure have thrilled park goers for many years.
