Glendora is a safe, family oriented city. In recent times, there have been many new construction projects which are modernizing the area as well as providing a lot more housing for residents. The public works department seems to be doing a great job as the city is always clean and there is plenty of healthy flora around. Glendora is however a fairly expensive area to live, with some multi million dollar homes nestled in the foothills. It is also a bit of a sleepy town at times, with not much nightlife to offer other than a couple of seedy bars. Overall, I enjoy living here in Glendora as I always feel safe, secure, and am able to find everything I need within a close proximity.

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.
