The ranchers and cattle are long gone, and Cypress has become a wonderful place for people to live. This community has a very family-oriented feel, with quiet neighborhoods and tree-lined streets. There are many club sports, summer camps, and other community events held year-round. In fact, the annual Cypress Community Festival, held every July, is the largest one-day event in Orange County.

Cypress is home to many different attractions, and is within close proximity to dozens more. The Los Alamitos Race Track, despite being named after the neighboring town, is located within Cypress and is the country’s premiere Quarter Horse Track. This track features both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse races year-round. In addition, Cypress is less than 10 miles from Belmont Shore in Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, and Disneyland. Downtown LA is only about 25 miles away, and there is easy access to the 405, 605, 22, and 5 freeways.

Cypress is in a prime central location for all that Southern California has to offer. With the parks and activities, it boasts a classic neighborhood feel. Yet with the prime central location, it also provides the convenience of big-city life. The balance of both of these lifestyles is favorable to many people, and Cypress has just that. Read less –
