I really enjoyed living near the city of Alhambra because of the nice and welcoming members of the community. If you are a pet owner, this would be a great place to live being that the community is pet-friendly and you will see many owners walking their dogs. In addition, Alhambra is an urban community with families residing in nice homes and clean streets. There are many schools surrounding the area from primary and secondary schools to colleges, such as California State University of Los Angeles. There is a great diverse community ranging from age and ethnicity in which the city upholds ethnic events to recognize members of all backgrounds. There is moderate traffic and parking is available in most parts of the city, especially the shopping centers! In Alhambra, the nightlife on Main St. is a strip full of nice restaurants and a popular dance club called La Grenada. Overall, Alhambra is a great city to live in.

My family and I shift to and from areas quite often, due to which I repeatedly exhibit a variety of cultures, am bombarded by differing beliefs, and have experienced multiple lifestyles. I have been residing in Alhambra for around a year or so and have enjoyed every bit of all the memories that I have acquired over this time period. A city with resources and services of an accessible sort, an adequate degree of exuberance, safe neighborhoods, wonderful inhabitants, and a calming ambiance are features one should most definitely cherish. With such aspects of this city in mind, there is not much that I would like to have altered.
My experience in Alhambra is exceptionally wonderful. The city has changed for the better in that new shops and restaurants are opening, offering a variety of choices while also opening new job opportunities. As an Alhambra High School student, the Alhambra downtown life is daily. Everything is within walking distance from the high school to the residential area. The police station and fire department are just a block off Main Street, making it safe. The is also an Alhambra Community Transit that goes around the city, costing only a quarter. The opportunities are plentiful in Alhambra. The only major change that I would like to see in Alhambra is the connection of the 710 freeway, as I feel that would bring lots of more tourism and customers to enjoy the life of Alhambra while also alleviating traffic for commuters.
