Hacienda Heights

Tell us what Hacienda Heights means to you

  • What makes this a good place to live? What are the downsides?


I've lived here my entire life and have little to complain about. The weather is usually nice, the community is friendly, and the streets are quite safe.

That said, traffic on the 60 Fwy running through Hacienda Heights is often a nightmare, but it's not a problem for those who have lived here for a long time and know how to get around quickly on surface streets.

Beautiful place to live with hills, green, thick landscape. Views of city and hills. Country atmosphere while being close to major freeways, parks, trails, etc. 20 miles from LA, 25 miles from the beach.

moved here in 1971, beautiful, pricey everyone thought it was "thee" place to live. All that changed about 25 years ago. Gosh, the Mall has changed it is a disgrace. The freeway is so packed and dirty and not safe at all. People leave their grocery carts all over the once nice neighborhoods. Would not recommend living in this neighborhood at all.

When I came to the US in 1987, I began my American life in Hacienda Heights. To this day, I think very fondly of the little town where I walked freely and played at the local park until sunset. Although it has changed from when I left, much of the town's charm is still intact. The only downside I see is the 60 Fwy... too congested and always a bottleneck when it comes to the immediate Heights area. Outside of that, it will always be "home" to me

Lived here since i was 10 years old, have seen it go from lilly white neighbors to most common taiwanese, but the Heights has kept its character even though the neighbors have changed, still quiet, safe, and everything you need is less then 20 minutes away, the 2 bad things that have happened, most of the popular stores have left the mall and the 60 fwy is a parkinglot now, other than that life has always been good and will stay that way as i can see, too many good people live here that care about it to let it go by the wayside and that my friends will never change... luv the heights and always will...
