Welcome to La Cañada Flintridge 

A family-friendly town in the mountains

 

La Cañada Flintridge is a friendly, welcoming neighborhood full of local charm. Set on the side of the San Gabriel Mountains, residents get a stunning view of the valley below them. Enjoy being surrounded by nature and soak in the small-town feel while still only being a quick drive from Pasadena, Downtown LA, or East LA. 
 
Many of the area’s earliest residents suffered from lung diseases and found healing in the mountain air. It wasn’t until NASA bought land to create a new laboratory here that more residents flowed in. La Cañada
Flintridge also used to be two communities, but La Cañada and Flintridge came together in 1976 so as not to be swallowed up by nearby towns.
 
Like many of the surrounding towns, the style is predominantly craftsman homes. Winding, wooded roads, and single-family homes set back on larger lots give La Cañada Flintridge real estate a rural feel.
