  WHAT’S LIVING IN San Marino LIKE?

San Marino is a small, upscale neighborhood about 13 miles northeast of Downtown Los Angeles. While it's predominantly residential, there are some good cafes and restaurants lining the main thoroughfare, Huntington Drive. If you're looking for more variety, it's just a short drive to the bustling Old Town Pasadena.

One of the big attractions here is the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. Focusing on European and American art, the collection features over 1,000 pieces from the 1600s through the mid-1900s. The gardens cover 120 acres (49 hectares) and feature several distinct garden styles. 

Housing here is expensive: it's rare to find a home for less than $1M. But you'll get a large property with an attractive home and manicured lawned thanks to San Marino's strict landscape codes. You won't find apartments or condos – rentals are limited to single-family houses.

Lacy Park park offers 30 acres (12 hectares) of walking trails, open green spaces, tennis courts, and picnic areas. It's dog friendly and hosts concerts and events throughout the year.

All the public schools here are excellent.

San Marino is bordered on the north by Pasadena and San Pasqual, on the east by East Pasadena and East San Gabriel, on the south by San Gabriel and Alhambra, and on the west by South Pasadena.
