San Gabriel is a quiet, peaceful area with many tasty restaurants and shops nearby. It is always a peaceful and calming city to walk through on a sunny afternoon. One great place to visit is the San Gabriel Mission. The place has a rustic feel to it and often times, there are many events hosted by the city!

This small, diverse city has been a home to me for the past 16 years. While dominated by Asian-Americans, this city has a rich culture with the San Gabriel Mission, surrounded by minority-owned businesses. The houses have increased exponentially over the past 10 years, but the food is priced affordably. While there isn't much of a nightlife, you can find things to do around the city. The traffic is pretty bad, especially on the larger streets during rush hours. However, overall, San Gabriel is a great place to settle down and to find great, cultural foods.
San Gabriel is a very busy neighborhood. It is filled with many tourists, due to the many luxurious hotels that have been built around the area just a few years back. It is mainly filled with Asians and Hispanics, typically a friendly neighborhood. There are many food options and markets as well. It is a safe neighborhood to live in, with not much chaos at night. In the morning, however, is usually when it becomes hectic, with an overcrowd of people and cars. Heavy traffic in the area is its normality, especially on school days and after school/work hours. The many new buildings, such as the hotels, bank, and others, has made this area very modern. Because this area mainly consists of Asians, there are lots of Asian restaurants, supermarkets, and dentistry. Overall, it is a very nice place to live in. It is always busy, but this is what makes it more lively. I do wish, however, that it wasn't so overcrowded sometimes.
