La-Palma is a small city located in northern Orange County, with a population of approximately 15,000 residents. Originally incorporated in 1955 as "Dairyland," it was one of three dairy cities in the region. The city was zoned to exclude housing developments in an effort to keep it agricultural in nature. However, by the mid 1960s, farmers decided their land had become too valuable to remain wholly agricultural, so they changed the towns name to La Palma to reflect Orange Countys Spanish heritage, and they planned well-defined residential and commercial areas in their city. Housing tracts now cover much of La Palma, along with small shopping centers and an industrial park. Residents take great pride in their town and it has one of the lowest crime rates in Orange County. Several seasonal events are held in La Palma each year, including the La Palma Days Parade and Band Review. It is a place with quiet, friendly neighborhoods and a "hometown" atmosphere - which makes it a great place to base a southern California vacation. La Palma is considered part of the Long Beach area, where you will find beautiful beaches, eclectic shopping and dining, the Aquarium of the Pacific, the historic Queen Mary and the Shoreline Village on the Long Beach Waterfront. Disneyland is also less than ten miles from La Palma.

La Palma Weather & Climate

California's climate varies significantly from one location to the next. Basically, it is semi-tropical along the southern coast with pleasant temperatures during the entire year. Mountain regions can be cooler, especially at night, than nearer the coast. Cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean help moderate the heat in summertime, and keeps temperatures very mild in winter. Summers are dry and the rainy season runs November through March and sometimes April. Low clouds or fog is common along the coast in summer, but it almost always burns off by noon and you can expect sunshine the rest of the day. The Santa Ana winds blow hot and dry out of the south in winter - often hard enough to close some highways.
