I lived in Cerritos for two years while on a work assignment, and the experience was unforgettable. The city is filled with so many fun things to see and do. I miss the diverse restaurant availability. Every day I got to choose from a variety of cuisines. The Cerritos Millennium Library Museum was a personal favorite of mine. I would make excuses to go just to enjoy the themes and designs they cleverly designed into the structure. I would often take my niece as the children's section includes a magnificent saltwater aquarium that includes sharks.
I lived in an upscale, quiet neighborhood with very low crime rate, but certain areas are prone to increased crime rates as compared to other areas in California, so, if considering moving there, you should ask your real estate agent if the area you are looking into is safe.
I miss the Los Cerritos Shopping Center. Every Sunday a group of my coworker and I would go browse the sales and enjoy a good time together. We would have lunch at the Lazy Dog Cafe, because we all loved the energy it generated and with it's animated staff and plasma t.v.s featuring various sports.
Cerritos, California is a fun and exciting place to live. During the two years I lived there, I enjoyed the many attractions it had to offer, and I look forward to the day that I get to visit again.
