So Many Options in Norwalk
Norwalk, California, is a part of the populous southern Los Angeles coalition of municipalities known as the Gateway Cities. Apartments are for rent in this sunny, suburban city. But with nearly 10 million people and 4,000 square miles in all of Los Angeles County, finding the right apartment can be a daunting task. That's why mynewplace.com has gone the extra mile for you.
The land surrounding present day Norwalk was first settled by the Shoshone tribe. They lived off the land in a largely agricultural society. When the Spanish arrived in the mid-1700s, building missions and roadways, ranching, and mining became prominent. But after California gained statehood in 1848, staples of the economy became forestry and dairy farming. New railway systems brought the wealthy to the wooded area that would one day become the place for relaxation in the countryside. As Los Angeles grew, the farms dried up, and the rural areas were sold to build houses. It was incorporated in 1957, and boundaries between the city and its surrounding communities were blurred by urban sprawl.
Living in Norwalk
Norwalk is bordered by fellow Gateway Cities: the municipalities of Downey, Santa Fe Springs, and Cerritos. The city of 100,000 sits between Interstate 5 and Highway 605, so from your new apartment, all of the greater Los Angeles area is at your fingertips. High school and middle school is served by the award winning Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, which is also the community's leading employer. Post-secondary students study at Cerritos College which offers certificates and two-year degrees in varying fields. There are three major hospitals in the city: Norwalk Community Hospital, Metropolitan State Hospital, and the Coast Plaza Doctors Hospital.
Buena Park and Greater LA
A short drive to the neighboring city to the southeast, Buena Park, gives you even more options in shopping, dining, and entertainment. Buena Park is home to Knott's Berry Farm, one of the oldest and largest amusement parks in the nation. Just a couple of blocks away is Buena Park Downtown, the region's largest shopping attraction. It consists of three separate locations: the enclosed Buena Park Mall, the outdoor Park Central Entertainment Center, and the open-air Buena Park Place across the street.
Because the city is intersected by so many major interstates and freeways, all of the great amenities in metropolitan Los Angeles are close by. Not only is the area one of the most populous in the nation, with attractions like amusement parks, film and television studios, and numerous professional sports teams, it's one of the most visited. Not only that, your apartment could put you just a half hour's drive away from both Long Beach and Manhattan Beach. So take the kids to Disneyland, attend a Lakers or Kings game at the Staples Center, or watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean – however you chose to spend your time, you’re sure to enjoy apartment living in Norwalk!

Is Norwalk a good place for families?
Based on safety and quality of education, Norwalk is an okay place for families. With a crime index of 27 out of 100, the crime rate in Norwalk is considerably higher than the national average across all communities in America. However, compared to other communities of similar population size, Norwalk has a crime rate that is noticeably lower than the average. Although Norwalk is served by various school districts, the main one, Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, was rated better than 30.0 percent of school districts in California and just 10.1 percent of school districts in the country. While Little Lake City Elementary School District has received similarly mediocre reviews, ABC Unified School District has fared far better. There are, however, several private schools in the vicinity.
How much are utilities in Norwalk?
Utilities can vay widely depending on your family size and the size of your home. A family of three living in Norwalk should expect to pay an average of about $300 per month for utilities. Because the summers are so hot, your utilities bill will certainly be highest from June through August, when you'll be using the air conditioning regularly.
