Alhambra California Attractions
The Alhambra is one of the oldest suburbs in Los Angeles County from the early 20th century and is located in Pasadena within the Rose Bowl. Located in the heart of Pasadena, just a few miles south of downtown and on the Palos Verdes peninsula overlooking the picturesque Palo Verde peninsula, it is home to 55 active residential developments, many of which are in the early stages of construction and development.
The Alhambra today is a very active Chinese business district, and in the 1970s and 1980s, many East Asian immigrants moved to the area because it was close to Los Angeles and the Rose Bowl, as well as downtown Pasadena. Its location between Monterey Park and Pasadena also reflects the fact that Chinese, Latinos, and the old school Americana have come together to form the spirit of Al Hambra.
In 1988, the neighboring city of Monterey Park passed an ordinance that prompted hundreds of Chinese companies to relocate to the Alhambra, and the state of California planned to designate the road as a major highway that would run east from Los Angeles to Long Beach. Many historians say that Chinese companies were already on their way in and out of Alhamra, but in any case, it began slowly to catch up with Monterey Park and its Chinese residents and facilities. There is now a stretch of road where it turns back to meet Montery Pass Road at the intersection of South Pasadena Boulevard and East Main Street.
The city of Alhambra borders San Gabriel, Marino and South Pasadena, and the Antequeruela district is separated from the valley by an almost parallel ridge of Monte Mauror to the east. The Assabica Valley, where Al Hambra Park is located, is also located to the west and south. The equatorial mountains of Monterey Park and San Fernando Valley border to the east, while the hills of Santa Monica, San Bernardino, Santa Clarita and Los Angeles land to the north on the AlHAMbra and to the south and west on Santa Ana, La Palma, El Monte and El Dorado.
Alhambra and Monterey Park are separated by the 10 Freeway and Garfield, and next to them is Ramona Avenue, which runs between Monterey Park and Alhamra. Also on the map is Pomona Valley Road, which was once part of El Monte Road, an important arterial road in the city of Los Angeles. Note that the Alhambra City Records start at Elland Road and end at Garfield Road. Before its incorporation in 1916, it was called "Ramona Acres." "(Note: also listed in maps as" Pomona ").
It is considered one of the most desirable places to live in Los Angeles County and the second most expensive city in the state of California. The townhouses are named "townhouses" in honor of the first mayor of the Alhambra, William "Bill" C. "Buck" Smith.
There is also a palace built in the same architectural style as the Alhambra, the Alcazaba, the second largest palace in Los Angeles County and one of the largest in Europe. The Salon, the Embajadores Room and the Ambassadors are located in the Torre de Comares and are among the larger rooms in Al Hambra. There are two other palaces, Al-Alta and Oberalha, both originally occupied by official courtiers. In recent years, they have allowed residents who want to grow flowers and vegetables on their own city plots to do so. The Generalife's baroque courtyard overlooks four vegetable gardens, more rural than the Alhambra.
A short Upper Bay Trail leads over the Upper Newport Bay of Nature and when one reaches the summit one can see the city of Los Angeles, the Alhambra and the San Fernando Valley. The walk takes about an hour and a half from the foot of Generalife to the entrance to Al Hambra.
Alhambra Monterey Park is located west of San Gabriel Mission and close to high-quality academic institutions. Several high-quality educational institutions are located east of downtown L.A., including the University of California, Los Angeles and California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
