Cypress is a small town that locates in North Orange County, California, surrounded with other small cities of Orange County and is northeast of Long Beach, Los Angeles County. Cypress is very conveniently located: about 20 minutes from everything - the nearest beach, the closest airport in Long Beach, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, about 40 minutes to downtown Los Angeles and 40 minutes to Newport Beach, Fashion Island. In addition, Cypress is full of amenities. You can actually walk to CVS or pharmacy from your home, and local stores. The city is very close to all major freeways. Cypress attracts families with it's great school district. All public schools: elementary, junior high, high schools, are As or in their 10s. Oxford Academy is #2 best school in the USA and to get enroll in to this academy, you need to live in the district. In addition to so many public schools, there are a lot of private schools as well, and a lot of Christian schools. So you have variety of choices to what school you are going to send your child. Despite being so small, Cypress has 26 parks around. So if you have a little ones, you can take them to local park toys where they can slide, swing, clime, enjoy seeing friendly squirrels and ducks. There are plenty of parks that have basketball court, volleyball court, tennis court here. Cypress is very friendly, clean and safe. When you come into Cypress, you see and feel how well it is taken care of, how clean it is, and it's pretty safe since police department is really close and they always around. A lot of headquarters of major corporations found their home in Cypress. We have Rolls-Royce Yamaha, Mary Kay, Mitsubishi, Travel House, Fujifilm, naming just a few. A lot of them are on Katella Ave. It was very hard for me to find cons on this beautiful city because some of you might like that the city is so small and has no nightlife. Cypress is small and sleepy town with only 47,000 residents, and besides being sleepy, It does not have much of fancy romantic dining. Also, If you are single or like to have nightlife around, Cypress is not your city. You would end up driving to nearest beach cities: Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach for fun time. And make sure you have a car, because public transportation is very poor in Cypress. Finally, housing is very expensive. I can't imagine the young family starting the family here unless you are into a computer science or any other jobs, you have that makes a lot of money. Average price in Cypress is $800,000. The cheapest place you can buy right now is 2beds, 2baths condo for $515,000, and the most expensive home that is for sale right now is almost $1.2 million.
