Overall, Glendora is a wonderful place to live in. This small town is the perfect place live. From the joyous holiday celebrations , to the peaceful walks in the neighborhood, Glendora is a wonderful place to grow up. Although, a bit expensive, the cost is well worth it since the safety and cleanliness of the streets are guaranteed. The education system in this city is top notch ensuring that its students are on the right path for success. One thing about Glendora I did not appreciate was the lack of diversity. There was a very noticeable lack of variety while one other group dominated the minorities. In conclusion, growing up in Glendora has been the perfect opportunity to really enjoy life

Glendora is a very small town right outside of Los Angeles, and like most small towns, we are a very tight-knit community. Something I've loved about growing up here is that I've got to learn and grow with the same kids all my life. Even if I'm not super close with someone, chances are that, sometime in our school careers, I've shared many laughs, smiles, and memories with them. Although I love this town, something that I'd like to see change around here is, somewhat ironically, more openness to change. Many of those who live in Glendora are very traditional, and they aren't open to new ideas, new public transportation, and new businesses coming to Glendora. If the people of Glendora could become more open to change, our town could be even greater than it is now.
The city of Glendora has a beautiful mountain view. As the part of life in this city, the mountain view is essential. Since route 66 is across to the city, residents can drive through the city and enjoy some classic American atmosphere. This historical road keeps demanding some residents to reach the end of rote 66 someday: that means crossing the country all way up to Chicago. Most residents enjoy living with the nostalgia in this old town, however, this city has been expanding recently. Because the Metro gold line reaches the next city of Glendora, many new houses are being built. The commute to Los Angel becomes more convenient. In this case, people can enjoy living in a new house with a convenience of commute. In addition, hardly to hear any gang activities. Safety and enjoyable environment are essential to happy life.
