sits about five miles north of downtown Long Beach,
with easy access to the Long Beach International Airport and Lakewood Center shopping mall. Apartments and condos
line the main streets, with refurbished mid-century homes
filling out the neighborhood. The single-family homes in this area enjoy large lots with old-growth trees along the streets. Lakewood Village's proximity to the Boeing plant and Long Beach City College provide easy commutes for employees and students.
Residents of Lakewood Village enjoy strolling through the Village Shoppes, two shopping districts located at the southwest and southeast corners of the neighborhood. For a fun afternoon, grab a burger at Dale's Diner, and see a movie at the old-school theater. Catch up with your neighbors at the weekly flea market held at Memorial Stadium, or meet up with them on the links at the Lakewood Country Club or Skylinks Golf Course.
