2) Close proximity to Dodger Stadium. The reason some fans leave early is not just to beat traffic, but also because they have work the next day and live far away. Once out of Chavez Ravine, you can be home in 10-15 minutes if you live in SP.

3) Easy access to some of the best, most authentic Cantonese cuisine on the planet outside HK/Guangdong.

4) Proximity to the majestic San Gabriel Mountains.

5) The town itself. A quintessential streetcar suburb that’s peaceful and quaint, yet close to cosmopolitan amenities. Everything is of a more human scale, the homes aren’t cookie-cutter, lots of trees, great schools, great public library, Pavilions is open until midnight every day of the week, etc. The list goes on. My only complaint is that the main commercial thoroughfares (Fair Oaks and Mission) could use more/better retail and dining options.
Just go to Gus's BBQ everyday. Problem solved!
