With a population of 15,568 according to the 2010 U.S. Census, La Palma, CA is located in northern Orange County, California. Just 10 miles from the beach and 20 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, La Palma was rated as 16th place to live in 2007 among small cities in the United States. Because of the town being one of the three dairy cities in the region, it was originally incorporated as Dairyland in 1955. As the dairies moved, the name was changed to La Palma, because of it's rich Spanish heritage, in 1965.
All three of the towns' elementary schools offer after school fitness programs as well, so this is a family friendly environment. Before moving to or visiting, you should check the La Palma, CA Yellow Pages and the La Palma, CA Business Directory. The city has an exceedingly low crime rate, which makes it easier for the residents to relax. Houses, however, are on the expensive side as the median selling prices were over $500,000 in the spring of 2011. The small town feel, however, will have you in a safe, comforting neighborhood your whole family can enjoy.
