Out and About in Westminster

May 27th, 2016

Westminster, California is located in Orange County and is in close proximity to Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley and Garden Grove. Since Westminster is conveniently located in the heart of Orange County, it’s the perfect place for anyone looking to make the most of everything the area has to offer. There are several beaches nearby and many exciting shopping and retail outlets are found in and around the city.

Excellent public schools make up the Westminster school district, with many excellent private schools also nearby. For higher education, Cal State Long Beach, Cypress College and Golden West College are all in close proximity, so a wide range of outstanding educational opportunities are in great abundance in the area.

Westminster boasts a rich traditional Vietnamese culture and history, with numerous Vietnamese immigrants finding refuge in the city from the early 70’s through today. With part of Westminster dubbed “Little Saigon” or “The Overseas Vietnamese Capital”, Westminster has numerous supermarkets, eateries and shops, both within Little Saigon and at the Westminster Mall. With the large influx of Vietnamese culture in the city, it is also appropriate that there is a Vietnam War Memorial here. The Westminster Rose Center is a wonderful event venue and is conveniently located within the city. Golf courses, skateboard parks and other local parks are also plentiful around the city to provide recreation and entertainment for the whole family. Mile Square Regional Park, which includes two lakes and three 18-hole golf courses among many other recreational facilities, is within just a few minutes’ drive of Westminster.

Westminster is also appealing due to its close proximity to the Los Angeles area as well as easy access to other cities and attractions in Orange County. Many people are able to commute easily to school or work and there are many educational and employment opportunities in the area.
