La Palma Days 2012

La Palma, California

La Palma was incorporated on October 26, 1955. It was originally incorporated as Dairyland, and was one of three dairy cities in the region {the other two being Dairy Valley in Cerritos and Dairy City in Cypress} but when the dairies moved east in 1965, the name of the community was changed to La Palma, after the region’s Spanish heritage and its main thoroughfare, La Palma Avenue.  La Palma was listed in 2007 as the 16th best place to live among small cities (50,000 or less) in the United States by Money Magazine.
