Artesia so far has been a pretty good place to live in. There are plenty of neighborhoods full of family homes, along with both big and small businesses around. It's a decent distance between LA, Long Beach, and Orange County, so it's not TOO terrible if you have to commute. There is plenty to do and plenty to eat that can fulfill just about any craving you may have. I could see myself buying a home here after finishing school and getting a job with my degree.

I live behind an ethnic area with lots of small businesses, so it tends to get loud. Also, there have been some street constructions in the area, so there are some streets that are blocked currently. The noise level is a bit loud for the part of town that I live in. However, I feel like this neighborhood is safe and I enjoy being able to go to restaurants nearby. There are many different ethnic foods from different parts of the world here, which is nice. I also like how there is a lot of diversity among peoples living in this area. The schools are really good too. There are some high schools in this area that are mentioned in the list of the top 10 high schools in America.

The diversity in the area is huge. There is Little India located in our suburb and has lots of Middle Eastern and Eastern Asians. The local shops are great. Supermarkets are accessible.
