Living and Working in the San Gabriel Valley
A Great Place to Call Home
The City of Arcadia is located in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley, which is one of the best places to live and work in California and is just 15 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.
The region offers a multitude of diverse entertainment, shopping and exceptional restaurant options. The San Gabriel Valley is less than an hour away from sunny Southern California beaches, and less than two hours away from local mountain resorts like Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead.
Locally, Arcadia is the home of the Santa Anita Park race track, which in recent years has developed multiple horse racing Triple Crown winners; and is located next to the City of Pasadena, which hosts the New Year’s Day Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game annually. The region boasts excellent public and private schools and universities, including Cal Tech, USC, UCLA, Cal State Northridge, Cal Poly Pomona, Azusa Pacific University and the Claremont Colleges.
Arcadia was previously named “Best Place to Raise Your Kids” by Bloomberg Businessweek magazine and is the perfect place to call home.
