San Dimas is a great place to live, especially near the Via Verde area just off the I-57 Freeway! There is a surprisingly low crime rate, shops and restaurants are just a short drive away in downtown/old town San Dimas. The area is a beautiful one, with Bonelli regional park and Raging Waters Waterpark within just a few miles of any residential area, it is sure to be a recreational and relaxing stay!

ALTHOUGH SAN DIMAS IS IN THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY, IT SITS NICELY BETWEEN THE INLAND EMPIRE AND DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES. ONE HALF OF SAN DIMAS OFFERS THE QUIETNESS OF COUNTRY LIVING WITH EQUESTRIAN TRAILS AND LARGE HOUSES WITH BARNS AND HORSES. THE OTHER HALF OF SAN DIMAS GIVES THEIR RESIDENCE THE CITY ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT TO MUCH OF THE CITY LIFE. WHATEVER YOUR LIFE MAY BE, SAN DIMAS OFFERS IT.
My family and I decided to move to San dimas 3 years ago!, and it's the warmest most peaceful place in the LA area. We used to live in downtown LA, needless to say day in and day felt hot, and turmoil like. San Dimas has many wonderful things to enjoy with everyone in your family, hiking, horseback riding, running, cycling, golfing , lake activities, and you may choose from all kinds of tasteful delightful restaurants. The neighbors of San dimas sure give that CA lushous smile, southern feel at their hello, and east coast atums , nice winter wonderland breeze, be ready to get close to your live ones around fire place, get involved in your community and enjoy that small town in a big city feel.
