Welcome to La Crescenta

Peaceful living and bucolic charm in a sleepy bedroom community
 
The Crescenta Valley dates back to 1798 when Don Jose Maria Verdugo established his 36,000-acre Rancho San Rafael. Today, this serene suburb remains one of the San Gabriel Valley's best-kept secrets. With its outdoorsy, family-oriented appeal, abundant green spaces, and spacious homes, La Crescenta is the perfect retreat from the big city frenzy of nearby Los Angeles.
 
With great schools, plenty of outdoor recreation, and a close-knit feel, this bucolic town feels like Mayberry rather than an L.A. enclave. Modest ranch homes, Craftsmans, and sprawling mansions make up La Crescenta’s neighborhoods.

Grab a quick and hearty lunch, or relax on the patio with a dinner of basil linguine and garlic fries.  

Rated as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the city, House of Joy has been a neighborhood staple since 1984. Locals swear by the chow mein and orange chicken.
