The area is very safe and it isn't too hard to find things to do! The school system is pretty good as well, and I attended all the way through high school. It isn't too far from big tourist areas such as Los Angeles and Disneyland... you can take a short metro ride over for an affordable price! The city is very pretty and there's always some fun, new developments! Downtown is one of the best areas of the city, where you can hang out with friends and on occasion there's big events held there that are a tons of fun. You can tell they are well put together!

I was born and raised in Glendora, and still continue to live here as a young adult. It's a beautiful town that offers safety, adventure, and great opportunities. There is a great amount of nature in and around town. Glendora offers great hikes, from nature walks to intense mountain biking. We also have Glendora Mountain Road right behind us, which offers a scenic ride to a great escape. The town is very well kept, and has many job opportunities as well.
Traffic is never terrible, but it definitely gets busy around 4-6pm on the streets. Because it is a sleepy town, there isn't much of a nightlife. Most businesses close around 8pm or sooner. It's a beautiful city, and a great place to raise a family. The public school system is great, and offers many exceptional schools consisting of passionate teachers.
I've recently moved to Glendora about two years ago, at first I was weary about the move but then overtime the city changed my mind. It's a friendly area, the city may seem a little big yet at the same time it gives that small town feel. The city has many markets and eateries that can fit your wants, overall a safe area with not much commotion of vehicles in residential areas. The downtown area hosts several great city events throughout the year that are always pleasing, and when there isn't a event it's a great family-friendly area to wander through.
