Azusa is truly its name: a place of healing. Since coming to this city, I have experienced a lot of growth in many aspects, including spiritually, emotionally, and academically. There are so many beautiful places to visit here and good hiking places in the canyon that are connected with surrounding cities. Azusa is a great place for friends and families to connect, rejuvenate, and live!

Azusa is a beautiful city to live in, especially if you love getting active and enjoy a natural scenery! Anyone who lives in Azusa can take a day trip to the canyons with friends and family, it is basically their backyard, take a hike or have a picnic near the flowing water. While you're by the water you can really enjoy the soothing sound of cool flowing water and watch a ton of frogs swimming and hoping around, it is truly magical. Something I would love to see is people cleaning up after themselves or others who leave a mess. I know many visitors love to come and enjoy our beautiful canyon, we should really take care of it and our wildlife if we want it to stay beautiful, my boyfriend and I try out best to clean as much as possible while we are there but we can only do so much.
My hometown, but no longer where I live. Went to Azusa High School, where the quality of education may not be best since the school district is constantly facing financial issues, but many teachers do the best they can with what they have.

There are gang issues, and drug issues depending where you are as well. Certain parts are certainly safer than others (Citrus Crossing, which is near APU), but generally, I would the further South you go the worse it gets.

Lastly, the city is pretty small (especially in comparison to Pasadena, which is about 30 minutes away driving). It’s definitely gives a small town vibe, which means there’s not a whole lot to do in terms of night life.

I moved out of Azusa after leaving for university, and have no plans of moving back. It’s a decent place if you’re into smaller cities, and perhaps don’t have kids. However, if you’re looking for a city with a lot of things to do, decent public schools, then look elsewhere.
