WELCOME TO LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE
La Cañada Flintridge is a case study in fascinating contrasts.
It’s technically a city, yet it somehow preserves a small-town feel. It’s located in the serene foothills of the Verdugo Mountains, but is less than 15 miles away from glitzy Downtown Los Angeles. Even its name tells a story: “La Cañada” (“the canyon”) hearkens to the Spanish colonial era, while “Flintridge” is a nod to 20th-century suburban development.
Rooted in history yet thoroughly modern. Far from the bustle without being remote. La Cañada Flintridge is everything your new hometown should be.
