CERRITOS
DAIRY VALLEY
Cerritos is a suburban city in Los Angeles County, home to around 49,000 people.
The city was formerly known as Dairy Valley, because of the many dairy farms in the area, and the City of Dairy Valley was incorporated in 1956. At the time, the city was home to more than 400 dairies, 100,000 cows and 106,300 chickens. In fact, the cows actually outnumbered the cities residents by 29 to 1, and the chickens outnumbered the residents by over 30 to 1! Two years after the incorporation of Dairy Valley, the community voted to become a chartered California City. With the state's increased property taxes and land values in the 1960s, agriculture was no longer profitable. The need for additional development was high, and as a result the residents voted to permit large-scale residential development. To reflect its new suburban orientation, the City's name formally changed to Cerritos in 1967, after the nearby Spanish land grant Rancho Los Cerritos. The two main employment centers in Cerritos are the Los Cerritos Shopping Center and Cerritos Industrial Park. The Industrial Park features light manufacturing and electronic and automotive assembly, and the Los Cerritos Center features a large retail district providing for 4,450 full and part-time positions. The Cerritos residents have lavish habits when it comes to shopping, and comprise second highest retail spenders in California only second to the affluent denizens of Beverly Hills. One of the most popular places to go for entertainment and shopping is the Cerritos Towne Center, which combines offices, retail, hotels and entertainment facilities in one master planned project. In the center you'll find the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, the Sheraton Hotel, and over one million square feet of office space. The retail part of the center features several major anchor tenants and numerous specialty shops, and considering the shopping habits of Cerrito's residents, it's safe to say you can find anything you're looking for here! Landmarks worth visiting include the Cerritos Sculpture Garden, which features several beautiful statues. These include the Air Disaster Memorial, which honors the victims of the Aeromexico Flight 498, as well as the Statue of Freedom and the Elements Fountain. For recreation, residents have access to the Cerritos Olympic Swim & Fitness Center, for a year-round indoor swimming pool and gym; as well as numerous parks, including the Pat Nixon Park.
