Arcadia is my adopted hometown. I was treated horribly in my hometown in Texas. I lived in Arcadia in the 1980s. I have been back East working.I recently visited Arcadia. Nothing has changed. Arcadia is still beautiful , peaceful, quiet and has the friendliest people in California!
Review Arcadia
My family and I have resided in Arcadia,CA for about 2 years now. From what I have observed, Arcadia is a very friendly, family oriented city. Although the community is not very diverse, the neighbors have been nothing but nice and supportive. I recently started a landscaping project and a lot of neighbors have walked by consistently complimenting my work. They have provided encouragement and positive feedback also. Arcadia is a safe city for we have witnessed multiple times people walking, running, etc., all hours of the evening. This also a testament to the cleanliness of the city. The one thing I would like to see change is the diversity of the city. Arcadia is predominantly Asian American with a sprinkle of other cultures or ethnicities. I think diversity is very important because it forces us to learn about each other's cultures and gives one an in depth look at the world we all live in. Overall Arcadia is a great city to reside.
I highly recommend my friends to live in Arcadia. Because it is a great place for middle class families. Arcadia has a small, quiet and friendly neighborhood. You go out for running in the 10:00 pm, you still feel safe. You can find many elderly couples walking in the night, they will say hi to you with warm smile. It has easy access to free way, 210, 605 and 10 free way. It will take about 30 minutes to arrive in downtown LA. Arcadia has everything you need, many good restaurants, shopping places and good public schools, so it is really convenient to live here.
