The name Los Alamitos means “the little cottonwoods” in Spanish, a name that traces back to the clusters of cottonwood trees that Spanish explorers first saw more than 200 years ago. However, the sugar beet played a bigger role in the area’s history and in the early 1900s, that industry contributed to the town’s growth. The town celebrates that heritage with a Sugar Beet Festival.

Many people believe that adjacent Rossmoor is part of Los Alamitos, and although it’s frequently linked, it’s not officially part of Los Alamitos. Rossmoor remains an unincorporated part of Orange County. Rossmoor, Los Alamitos, and Seal Beach are all served by the highly regarded Los Alamitos Unified School District. Read less –

Nevertheless, buyer activity is easily outpacing seller activity in much of the country, culminating in relatively quick sales and low supply. Demand has continued to remain extremely strong so far this year.
