The best feature of Los Alamitos is its warm climate. The weather here is nice all year around. The late winter and spring months bring the most precipitation to the area but the rest of the year is gorgeous. You don't have to worry about any snow. The record for the largest snowfall in Los Angeles was set back in 1932 at a scant 2 inches. Los Alamitos is what your typical Los Angeles suburb town comprises of. The area is known for its cottonwood trees but at one time was a major agricultrual area as Los Alamitos was famous for sugar beets. When that faded out the town took on the military and that is the driving force today. The next time that you visit Los Angeles make sure to visit the working man's town of Los Alamitos, California.
