Alhambra is a very small city located in Southern California. The city of Alhambra sits on just over seven square miles of land, and it is home to over 80,000 people. The city gets its name from the book called Tales of the Alhambra which was written by Washington Irving. The city motto is “Gateway to San Gabriel.”
There is one area in the city that has been considered the main business district since 1895. This area is still popular to this date even though most of the older buildings have been torn down. All of this happens on the corner of Main and Garfield.
The city hosts several landmarks that include: The Hat Sign, Garfield Theater, Ramona Convent and more.
The city has a rich cultural history that has seen several different types of people call Alhambra home. In the early 1950s Italians begin arriving. In the 1960s Mexicans immigrated to the city, and in the 1980s a large group of Chinese moved to the area. There is still a significant number of Chinese people that call the city of Alhambra home.
The weather in the city is mild for almost the entire year. There are only a few months during the Summer when the temperatures exceed 90 degrees, and in the Winter, it rarely gets below 30 degrees.
The few months of Summer that it does get hot in Alhambra can really start to use the cities resources. High electric bills are not uncommon, and residents are always looking for ways to keep their costs down. Southern California Edison, the company that supplies the city of Alhambra with its electricity has dedicated a special portion of their website to helping its customers keep costs down during the Summer months.
