[Neighborhood] Sierra Madre

Sierra Madre Apartments

In the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley lies the city of Sierra Madre, a small city of Los Angeles County. Commonly referred to as the ‘Wisteria City’ or ‘Village of the Foothills’, Sierra Madre won the prestigious All American City award 2007. This is the perfect area for anyone who wants to live close to L.A. without having to deal with the hustle and bustle of the city. Our Sierra Madre apartments for rent are especially appealing to those who appreciate big lawns, big trees, and a friendly, tight-knit community atmosphere.

Local Culture

Like most areas in Los Angeles County, the Sierra Madre was originally inhabited by the Tongva Native Americans or People of the Earth. The Tongva communities slowly began to disappear as the Mission San Gabriel Archangel was founding in the 1770s. The Tongva culture was integrated into the mission and the tribes were renamed the Gabrielino American Indians. Sierra Madre homes for rent reflect the long history the city holds with great pride and respect.

Today, Sierra Madre apartments for rent are attractive to people who really appreciate a strong sense of community. Sierra Madre hosts multiple festivals throughout the year, and the downtown area has plenty of unique, small restaurants and boutiques for those who enjoy exploring a homier, less corporate environment than you’ll find in major cities. Many local shops and eateries use ingredients grown locally, from olives to berries for jams and jellies. Enjoy meeting friendly locals, and then become one yourself over time!

Take a Hike

If you appreciate nature, you’re sure to fall in love with our Sierra Madre homes for rent. While it may be part of Los Angeles County, you have plenty of opportunities to escape the big city in Sierra Madre. The northern and northeastern portions of the city are the Lower and Upper Sierra Madre Canyons, which are known for lush plants, long, winding roads, and quaint cabins and bungalows. Hikers will fall in love with trails such as the Sierra Madre Wilderness Trail, Live Oak Nature Trail, and Canyon View Nature Trail – all located in Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park. The park also has a picnic area complete with fire circles and barbecues, as well as a native botanical section.

Live the Sierra Madre Lifestyle

As you browse Sierra Madre apartments for rent, you’ll find affordable rentals as well as luxury options. The recent inclusion of the Milton & Harriet Goldberg Recreation Area in 2008 is just one of the many efforts the city has taken to establish an upscale living environment for the residents of Sierra Madre, and the area stands out considerably from the surrounding Los Angeles areas. Sierra Madre apartments for rent sit in a historical community that is rich in culture and diversity.

Annual Festivals

During the Fourth of July, the city hosts an annual “Star Spangled Weekend” with a patriotic parade and three days filled with festivities and fun. The weekend is filled with musical performances, local foods, games, beer booths, and of course a spectacular fireworks show. However, the most notable festival that those looking for Sierra Madre apartments for rent need to know about is the Wisteria Festival. For one day, the Chinese wisteria vine is made available for viewing. It is the largest flowering plant in the world and is considered among one of the seven horticultural wonders of the world.
