Azusa Reviews

I love how friendly Azusa is! I moved here as an outsider to Southern California, and was immediately welcomed into the community. I appreciate the effort this city puts into keeping itself environmentally conscious. That is a big deal to me. I am grateful that the mayor puts time and energy into knowing the people of his city.
Review Azusa
Azusa is an overall okay city. Some of the neighborhoods are definitely nicer than others, but construction for shopping has picked up in recent years. The public schools are terrible, however!
Azusa is a small town with a lot to offer. If you're not use to city lights and the sounds of hundreds of cars driving at all hours of the day and night, then you'll love Azusa. Almost everything is walking distance no matter where you live. From coffee shops to restaurants, liquor stores to grocery stores, kindergarten schools to high schools, a community college and university, all within this small town. If you're gonna travel outside the area, there's many alternatives to driving your own car. Located in downtown Azusa, is the Metro station, which travels all the way to East Los Angeles. There's also the foothill transit and many local Uber and Lyft drivers. If you like the outdoors and you like to keep yourself fit, Azusa has many parks equipped with gyms and many trails for bike riding and walking.
