Azusa Reviews

This is a smaller town in the suburbs of Los Angeles, but on of the most underrated college towns in the U.S! Azusa Pacific University is the spotlight of the city and contains the most genuine friendly college students. The area around the college is growing with all the newest hip places, both to eat and hang out. New housing developments against the mountain range offer amazing views that attract new buyers. Overall this is the spot to be in CA, and a great place to raise a family.
Review Azusa
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.
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!
