Lakewood - Tomorrow's City Today - The City of Lakewood, California was originally conceived post World War II, in the early 50's as the first master planned community. Organized around the new Lakewood Center Mall, rows of quaint working class homes went up at lightning speed.
The most boring City in the Country - Recently deemed "The Most Boring City in the US" by real estate website Movoto, Lakewood stands tall. If beautiful, unspoiled tree-lined neighborhoods, a low crime rate and good schools are boring then Lakewood will take it.
Lakewood is preserved as a beautiful, master-planned, suburban community with strong home values and quiet living. Close to Long Beach and several freeways, it's convenient to get anywhere.
