I like how Loma Linda is a suburban area that is very family-friendly and safe. It is a very Christian town with most of the people being Seventh-day Adventist (SDA). Loma Linda is known for it's great faith-based healthcare, hospitals, and academy/university. Also, the city prides itself in being a blue-zone, meaning it one of the only places where people live the longest and healthiest lives due to the SDA lifestyle of being vegetarian and active. What I would change about Loma Linda is that it plans for more entertainment because people often have to go to neighboring towns to do things for fun.

Love the structure of the neighborhoods and the intimate community aspect integrated by the playgrounds, pools, and sport courts placed in the middle of a couple of their communities. Close proximity to the hiking/biking trails in the Loma Linda Hills. Only 1-2 hours to the beach, mountains, Joshua Tree, or Los Angeles itself! Predominantly Christian city, with the hospital having been started by an Adventist Christian pioneer, and many Christian churches in the area. Nice people!
Loma Linda is a Seventh-Day Adventist City. They are equipped to handle any obstacle that may stand in the way through their faith. Loma Linda has great resources as a whole. The city continues to do great things such as marathons, the McDonald's Playhouse, Loma Linda University, Loma Linda Hospital and also the Veterans Affairs Hospital is in the center of Loma Linda. I truly have experienced great things here. Families are raised here and it's a community that sticks together. You can truly feel the love, the inspiration, and the peace. This city has many resources and different marathons to participate in. This city is the most healthiest and safest in America.
