About Alhambra

Alhambra is a city located in the western San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County, California, United States, approximately eight miles from the Downtown Los Angeles civic centre. Alhambra, founded in 1903 and known as the Gateway to the San Gabriel Valley, was named after Washington Irving's "The Tales of the Alhambra." Alhambra nowadays comprises a diverse spectrum of ethnic groups, despite its early history reflecting a strong Spanish influence, and its businesses have strong linkages to global trade. 

As a result of the city's closeness to the predominantly Asian-American Monterey Park, which attracted many East Asian immigrants in the 1970s and 1980s, there is now a thriving Chinese business sector in Alhambra. 

Residents of Alhambra enjoy an urban-suburban fusion lifestyle. There are numerous eateries, coffee shops, and parks in Alhambra. The city is home to many young professionals, many of whom are liberal. The California Institute of Technology, California State University at Los Angeles, Pasadena City College, Pasadena College, East Los Angeles College, University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California are just a few of the top educational institutions around the city, and that's why it's a sought-after student destination.
