Lakewood: Like L.A. but So Much Better
Sure, Lakewood is a part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, but it has an identity of its own. Don’t take our word for it, though; head over to the Lakewood website and see for yourself what sets Lakewood apart from the rest of the basin.
Oddly enough, Lakewood has quite a few parallels to Levittown, New York. Both of these towns are quintessential suburbs that popped up at the end of World War II and provided the setting for the subsequent baby boom. Today, the people of Lakewood are encouraged to continue living the suburban dream by getting involved in city organizations, such as the Good Neighbors Program. In Good Neighbors, Lakewood residents get together to share stories about their goodly neighbors, and how they've helped, or been helped by them. It's a pretty sweet idea, sweet enough even to melt the hearts the most sour cynics.
In 2009 Lakewood celebrated its 55th anniversary. To this day, it’s still a ""general law"" city. What this means is a bit complicated, but if you're inclined to fill your brain with complicated information then feel free to have go at it. The city also has a tradition of naming its parks and other public facilities after people who have helped bring about ""tomorrow's city today,"" including Latin American hero and revolutionary, Simon Bolivar, early Lakewood developer, Ben Weingart, and the city's first mayor, Angelo Iacoboni.
If you’re looking for work, Lakewood’s top employers include the Long Beach Unified School District, the city of Lakewood, and the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services. As you can see, most of the jobs in this town are in the public sector. If you’re looking for work in the private sector, try Albertsons grocery store, Long Beach Mazda, and Piazza McDonald's (which has 250 employees).
Just Do It
Lace up your Nikes and hit the asphalt at Lakewood's many basketball courts. You can find these courts within the city's parks. If basketball is your bag, or your ball (or even your ball bag), we recommend Boyar Park at 6701 Del Amo Blvd.
If you’d like a little more information about Lakewood, feel free to explore the city on your own. Here's the city's events calendar, which might look pretty cool on your tablet. We hear those are all the rage.
