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.

Alhambra is amazing! I can't imagine living anywhere else! It's only 20 minutes from Los Angeles and Pasadena. It's filled with quality restaurants and great food hot spots! It is mainly an Asian-Hispanic community, but as of recently I have been seeing more diversity in the area. This suburb also has lots of community events that are well attended. If the crazy drivers don't distract you from the amazing food, then Alhambra is the place to be!
this city is great! Alhambra is a very clean, family orientated and historic city. It was originally made for military area but later on became known to be a residency for royalty. Alhambra is also known for its diversity being the home of many different cultures and religions.
