Twenty miles southeast from downtown Los Angeles, Cerritos, 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 José Manuel Lopez-Nieto in the 1780’s, the area which is now Cerritos became part of Rancho Los Cerritos (Ranch of the Little Hills) when Nieto died and passed the land to his daughter Maria. For most of the early 19th century the old Spanish ranchos raised cattle and sheep. In fact, for a time, beef was in abundance and cheaper than salt. After the U.S.-Mexican War, the area was largely taken over by the San Bernardino Land Company who divided it into smaller plots to be sold to farmers and other settlers. Soon enough, Dutch and Portuguese dairy farmers made Cerritos one of the largest milk producing regions in the United States. Not surprisingly, the original name of the area when it was incorporated in 1956 was the City of Dairy Valley. At the time, there were more than 400 dairies and 100,000 cows in “Dairy Valley.” With the 1960’s, however, real estate investors began moving in and, after a 1963 ordinance permitting large scale residential development, Cerritos (the name was changed in 1967) became mostly a residential suburb. Between 1970 and 1972, it was the fastest growing city in California. Today, Cerritos has a diverse population with a large Asian-American presence. Cerritos is also one of the most affluent cities in California with a median household income exceeding $90,000.
It’s certain a Cerritos tutor will be able to get you caught up on your most difficult academic subjects so you can take some time away from the books to experience the various things to do in Cerritos and the greater Los Angeles area. For the outdoor enthusiast, Cerritos has two highly rated parks. Heritage Park on the eastern side of Cerritos, which is divided down the middle by the city of Artesia, offers a family friendly environment with a play island in the center of a small lake complete with slides, a pirate ship and faux historical buildings. Don Knabe Community Regional Park also has a lake for fishing, a swimming pool, athletic fields and basketball courts. The park covers over 50 acres in southeast Cerritos.
It’s just a short drive down La Palma Avenue from Cerritos 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.
Cerritos is also only a few miles from the “Happiest Place on Earth,” otherwise known as Disneyland, in 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.
