Pomona is not too far from the city of Pasadena, it is between other cute cities with malls, and you not too far from Orange County. I like that! Otherwise, Pomona is alright. There's not a lot to do, mainly houses, and the roads aren't in the best condition. There are really cute neighborhoods hidden away though! Like all cities there's crime, but there are safe neighborhoods. So, Pomona is an average suburb.

As you may have heard many things about Pomona but it has evolved so much within the last years! City has new improvements roads buildings hospital homes and most of all It’s family oriented. I’m so in love with the big beautiful palm trees they plan throughout the city and visible beautiful mountains. I lived here all my life and it’s a wonderful city.
I have lived in Pomona for almost five years now. There is a lot of diversity within the community. It is also right in between Los Angeles and San Bernardino /Riverside which makes traveling convenient. What I enjoy most about Pomona is everything you need is local or a couple blocks away. There are local supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations and etc. What I would like to see change in Pomona is to have more community gatherings. For example, the Art Walk is such a great event that brings the community together. I would also like to see more programs to help the homeless. Overall, I haven't really had any issues living in Pomona.
