Norwalk is a populous city in the central Southeast region of Los Angeles County. It borders Downey
, Cerritos, Artesia, and Santa Fe Springs. In the early 1900’s, Norwalk and its surrounding territory were mostly associated with dairy farming; they now make up a somewhat suburban, quintessential Los Angeles in-city suburb. Though Norwalk is the 58th most populous city in California, it is relatively spacious (nearly 10 square miles) and therefore maintains an average density.
Residents enjoy strong centrality and accessibility in the form of the 5, 605, 91, and 105 freeways. Traffic depending, these major arteries make Norwalk a reasonable place from which to commute across LA and the rest of the county. As far as arts, culture, night life, and restaurants are concerned, Downtown Los Angeles
is your best bet. It’s accessible not only via the 5 freeway, but also via the Metro Orange Line, which connects Riverside
, Orange County
, and LA.
