North American Van Lines: The Best of Downey Moving Companies

Head south on Interstate 5 from downtown Los Angeles and you will run into the beautiful city of Downey, one of the gems of the metropolitan area. Its centralized location in L.A., lovely family-friendly residences and excellent schools make this one of the most popular places in the city to call home.

Besides the amazing weather that this region is known for, living here is great because you are just 5 miles from Orange County and 10 miles from the shimmering Pacific coastline. There are also several major businesses located in Downey, including Kaiser Permanente, a Coca-Cola Bottling Company and two paper companies.

According to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, Downey is home to nearly 113,000 residents, and City-Data statistics revealed that the city grew by more than 5 percent in population from 2000 to 2012.

Activities and attractions in Downey

There are several unique attractions located in Downey, including the oldest operating McDonald's in the country. The space opened in 1953, the employees still wear the ‘50s era uniforms - including paper hats and bolo ties, and the original no-frills menu still stands, including cheeseburgers, fries and old-fashioned milkshakes.

Downey is also known for its excellent golf courses, and with the near-perfect weather in the area, you can work on your swing year round. Two of the best include Rio Hondo Golf Club, a par 71 venue that boasts PGA-trained instructors and breathtaking views with waterfalls and lakes. Another great golfing option in the area is Los Amigos Golf Course, a Billy Bell-designed course that has been part of the community since 1966.

The city is also well-known for being the home to the Columbia Memorial Space Center, a learning facility that serves as a memorial for the Space Shuttle Columbia's seven crew members and a 20,000-square-foot facility that lets families learn all about the last frontier.
