Altadena, CA is the perfect place to live if you are looking for diversity. The neighborhoods, for the most part, are integrated with many different races of people, mostly families, with young professionals, and retirees in the mix. . This is also a very economically diverse area. It's not unusual to see blue collar and white collar neighbors living next to each other. Altadena is not the place if you are looking for hot restaurants and shopping. However, we do have a nice small selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Mom and pop retail shops and services are plenty. Altadena's sleepy, town feel, surrounded by the Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel mountains, is perfect.
I absolutely love living in Altadena! It's a great neighborhood that is nestled beneath the San Gabriel mountains with a very laid back vibe.
Altadena is a beautiful subset of Los Angeles that is far enough away from the city yet close enough to experience the best of both worlds. Altadena's landscape is lush and mature and is an ideal setting for families who like the quiet lust of nature. Affordable homes for the working class are limited though, as it seems the price of peace and quiet is only meant for the rich.
