Hello California

My husband, three kids and I will be moving to California within the next few months! We haven't found a place yet, but these are the areas we are looking at:

-Cerritos

-Los Alamitos

-Seal Beach

-Rossmoor

-Long Beach

Are there any moms in these areas that could tell me about the place? I heard that the Los Alamitos School District is known as the best, is that true? Are there any mommy group that I can join to meet local moms and set up play dates?

 

Thanks!

Hi! I'm in long beach CA. All the areas you speak of are nice! Los Alamitos is known as the best school district in orange county. I guess it depends on what you're looking for really. We love Belmont heights in long beach because there's so much more culture than seal beach or los alamitos but it's still very nice. Honestly, the bottom four on your list are all similar neighborhoods. Good luck with the move! Feel free to friend request me! How old are your little ones?

Do you know if Belmont heights is apart of Los Alamitos school district? I read on the schools websites they only take students from some parts of Long Beach...

We are moving from Ohio! So its a big move. My boys are 7 and 6 years old and my daugther is 3 years old.

Just curious but why California? The cost of living out here especially in the areas you're looking in is ridiculous. I live in California and cannot wait to be able to get out.

My husband is being movied out there for work. And yes, the cost of living is much more than it in here in Ohio, but we both have been to California many times and we just LOVE it! The weather, the people the areas we have been to. Its always cold and rainy here in Ohio.
