Those of you that live in Acton or perhaps just have visited know of the great towns and cities surrounding Acton. For those of you new to the area you might feel as if you have a little exploring to do. Where do you start? Well known cities close to Acton start with Los Angeles which is just a mere 29 miles away. Which means living in Acton would make you close to the big city and all its fame and excitement but still far enough away to enjoy a little bit more peace and quiet and a lot less of a populated city. Next we have Studio City that is 44 miles away. Known for it’s name and the fact the Brady Bunch house is located there, it is also home to many famous people. Driving around the city there you never know who you might run into. Next we have Anaheim, which we all is known for being the home of Disney Land! Totaling only 47 miles from Acton it is a short drive for you and your family to make Disney Land your playground for the day! Also known for other theme parks as well such as Disney California Adventure and Six Flags to name a few. Part of Orange County there are beautiful beaches to see as well. Next we have Long Beach which is just a short 2 miles from Anaheim with a total of 49 from Acton. Long Beach is the hub of shipping as well as other industrial business. With a lucrative oil industry that has slowly declined over the years, Long Beach may not be a place to raise a family but it does offer jobs in many fields.
Last I want to mention this impressive city, not because it is a short distance from Acton but because it isn’t really that far. With it’s beautiful beaches, beachy towns, awesome nightlife and beautiful sites San Diego, California is beloved by many! Only 135 miles from the city of Acton it makes for a good getaway destination or perhaps a long weekend exploring the San Diego Zoo, Pacific Beach or any of the seaside towns located within this city. With board walks to walk along, beaches to soak up the sun, play in the waves and relax in the sand, San Diego is a place of fun and beauty. Living in Acton we have made this city our vacation spot many times over the years. From exploring Gaslamp district with friends, watching the Padres play up against other major league Baseball teams at Chase Field, to listening to music at the House Of Blues, it is a city to be visited!
Acton is rather centrally located and has a lot of great near and not so far towns located in its proximity. With only a population of 21,929 Acton is one of the smaller cities located in California. If you like the smaller town feel but still want adventure at your doorstep, Action may be a town worth checking out. We feel it has a lot to offer and can be a great place to call home.
