City GuideEl Monte

"If I could go back / To those days of the past, / I'd show you a love... / A love that would last /Oh, I remember /Those wonderful dances / In El Monte / Earth Angel / Earth Angel / Will you be mine?" (-- Frank Zappa, "Memories of El Monte")

Looking for a comfortable Los Angeles community, with plenty of parks, and a whole lot of history? Try freeway accessible El Monte, east of downtown LA. El Monte, CA is located at the end of the Santa Fe Trail and at the confluence of two rivers in the San Gabriel Valley. Now thats something to roar about. With a population of around 113,000, this friendly residential and commercial city hosts a business community as well as a commuter-friendly home for greater Los Angeles residents.

Living in El Monte

Ranch Style

Many older residences around El Monte are single-story, single-family ranch homes. This classic style was so popular in the area that they were recorded and photographed by renowned photographer Dorothea Lang in the 1930s.

Living History

In a town with plenty of park space, from playgrounds to grassy playing fields, The Santa Fe Trail Historical Park stands out for its historical significance. Heres the end point of the Santa Fe Trail, which led pioneers all the way from the State of Missouri. If they arrived now, they could enjoy learning more about the town at the El Monte Historical Museum. From photos and paintings of the area to a wonderful walk-in recreation of a turn of the century El Monte drug store, you'll find rich stories about the town in a museum many have dubbed the best community museum in the country.

Welcome to Hollywood

Hollywood gets the name credit, but it was El Monte where television variety shows began with KTLA's Hometown Jamboree produced at the American Legion Stadium right in El Monte. The stadium also hosted rock and roll shows during the 1950s, a draw for music fans from all across SoCal. It was here that the Penguins first performed the song Frank Zappa penned about the city itself, "Memories of El Monte." The American Legion Stadium remained a solid draw to rockers and their fans through the 1960s.

Fittingly, many musicians were born and raised in El Monte, from country rocker Joe McDonald to guitarist Mary Ford. Also raised here was comedian Cheech Marin.

Lets not forget another Hollywood hot spot - Gays Lion Farm. Retired circus stars ran a tourist attraction that supplied wild animals for the film industry - over two hundred African lions were the "mane" attraction. In fact, the family provided the MGM logo lion.

Sporting Life

There's the Whittier Narrows Tennis Center in South El Monte, while in nearby Arcadia, you can enjoy swinging your nine iron on lush Arcadia Golf Course.

Rental Tips

Drive or Ride

Within the city, public transportation is strong, and many commuters use bus routes to navigate the city. However, residents commuting into Los Angeles or surrounding communities drive themselves or car pool.

Green Space

El Monte hosts a number of local parks and playgrounds, making neighborhoods feel more suburban than urban, although population density is high. Even on busy urban streets, pocket parks and trees give city streets a well cared-for appeal.

Moving to El Monte

El Monte real estate is in high demand. Allow a long lead time - several months is optimal to find the rental of your dreams.
