Can I Live in Los Alamitos and Commute to Los Angeles?
Los Alamitos, one of Orange County’s first true suburbs is known for its small-town, Mayberry-like feel. The community is clean and safe, and its residents pride themselves on maintaining some of the best schools in the county. What’s more, it’s less than 30 miles from Los Angeles, making it the perfect place to settle down with the family while still being able to work in the big city. In fact, according to Rome2rio, when it comes to commuting to L.A. from Los Alamitos, you have multiple options to choose from. Let’s take a look.
