Get the door, it's the liquor store
With just over 50,000 people living in its bountiful bounds, Cypress offers that dense suburban feel that characterizes the finer parts of L.A.’s outskirts. Tucked between Los Alamitos and Stanton, Cypress was originally named “Waterville” for the prevalence of artesian wells gushing forth from its bedrock. In 1956, dairy farmers... named it Dairy City in an attempt to deter developers from entering the area. This effort was noble but doomed, for the area was simply too charming to resist development. By the post-World War II years, land here was so valuable it was primed for housing. And so Cypress became Cypress: a city full of parks, quiet neighborhoods, fantastic dining, and proximity to everything great about L.A. Head west, and you’re at the ocean. If you drive east, you’re in the mountains.
