Possibly moving to Bellflower, CA. It sounds like a pretty decent area. Can anyone give me some insight? Bike trails, eating, fun places to go? Is it much of a commute to Culver City?

How'd you pick Bellflower? Have you ever been there? What do you know about it so far?

Please, please, please don't rely on Internet statistics to find a city to live in. If your job's in Culver City, you should start there looking for a place to live. Culver City's not too bad. I believe someone else is working in Culver City and recently asked about places nearby to live. If you can't find it, you can start your own thread.

That's all I need to know then. Actually my job would be in Bellflower but my nephew would have to commute to Culver City. I'm going to work in the Culver City area this summer so my nephew doesn't have to pay rent-he's a student doing an unpaid internship in Culver City. I have a job where the rent is paid-that's the only reason I'm going to the LA area. I'll just decline the job and wait for something closer to Culver City.

Bellflower is a sh*thole. I've lived in or around the area for many years. The commute would be a little rough to the Culver City area.

Try Lakewood or Cerritos, they are a lot nicer than Bellfower. Oh, and everything is a commute in LA. I used to Commute 20 miles in SoCal, it took me an hour +.

Wow.

You really need to be more respectful of others' opinions... and besides, I'm sure that the poster was talking about the city in general...

As for my take... I wouldn't recommend anything west of Bellflower Boulevard and even a few parts east of it. A lot of the neighborhoods are a bit run down, especially south of Alondra and west of Bellflower Boulevard. Lakewood and Cerritos are nicer and more safe...
