Located in the western San Gabriel Valley, just eight miles from Downtown Los Angeles, Alhambra is known for its high population of Asian Americans (almost half of the city), top-rated elementary and high schools, and some of the best dim sum this side of the Pacific. Predominant architecture styles in the area include Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Modern, Monterey, Ranch, Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and Victorian. Check out Alhambra Place, a modern 120,000-square-foot retail center on the corner of Main and Garfield, along with the Sunday Farmer’s Market, and spacious Granada Park. Each February, Valley Boulevard hosts the Alhambra Lunar New Year Celebration, featuring an art exhibit and street festival that draws 25,000 people.
