Azusa Reviews

114 reviews
All Categories
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.
There are many things that I like about Azusa, specifically the feeling of a community. I always pass by signs for library story times, city events and ceremonies. I am not from Azusa but i definitely feel this feeling of unity and support. I appreciate the high volume of police presence, as it makes me feel very safe. The canyons are also an amazing view and are beautiful when the sun is rising in the morning. Things I wish I could see change in would be the using of crosswalks. There are crosswalks in the middle of busy intersections and if one car does not see someone walking, that person usually ends up almost being stuck by the vehicle.
Azusa is a small city but with a very close knit community. Everyone in this small town knows each other from a work place, a meeting in a store, a school, etc. Nothing is ever overpriced and work opportunities are always available upon asking. A lot of the best food, parks, retail stores can easily be found here and many of people's favorite places reside in Azusa. The city does have a pressing issue with littering and vandalism but all around is a great tight knit city.
