I have lived in San Dimas for 4 years now, but originally lived here when I was 2-6 also. It is such a cute, small and friendly town where everyone knows everyone. The restaurants are great, the people are nice and the schools are fantastic! Great place to raise a family.

San Dimas is a quaint city with a small town feel. The City promote community gatherings through events and is safe to walk around, even at night. It does have an over abundance of coyotes so you will have to be careful and watchful over small children and small pets. Nevertheless, it's still a great place to live!
San Dimas is a small city that is a part of LA county. It has good hospitals, schools, several universities and nice shopping centers. San Dimas is mostly quiet and safe, but I personally wouldn't go on a late evening walk by myself or with a friend. This city barely has any homeless people, which is a big deal for CA.
One of my favorite things about living in San Dimas is close proximity to LA, which is 40 minutes away. I can attend interesting events, go to good restaurants and be lose enough to the international airport.
The nature of the city is breathtaking - it is very green and has a beautiful mountain view.
San Dimas has a dry climate, it gets very hot during summer (100) and stays relatively warm during winter (50-60).
This city has everything that is needed for good life, I enjoy living here.
