California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.
Cypress is a city located in southern California near the northern border of Orange County, California, USA. Though it is considered to be a suburb of Long Beach, it has many resident industries. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 17.1 square kilometers.
Cypress was originally nicknamed Waterville due to the preponderance of artesian wells in the area, but was incorporated under the name Dairy City in 1956 by local dairy farmers as a way to stave off developers and to preserve their dairies, much like the then-neighboring cities of Dairy Valley in Cerritos and Dairyland in La Palma. However, after World War II the land became too valuable for farming or ranching, and one-by-one, the dairies sold out to housing developers during the 1960s.  

In the city the population was spread out with 27.0 percent under the age of 18, 7.9 percent from 18 to 24, 30.2 percent from 25 to 44, 24.4 percent from 45 to 64, and 10.6 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
Cypress is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in California worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of California.
