There are many words one can use to describe Sierra Madre: quaint, comfortable, safe, friendly, inviting, scenic—and one word that sums it all up … desirable.

This village, nestled in the foothills just northeast of Los Angeles, is a tightly-knit community with a deep sense of pride in both its historical treasures and in its modern-day accomplishments and lifestyle. It’s been said that half the town marches in the annual Fourth of July parade and the other half comes out to watch it.

Located in beautiful Southern California, Sierra Madre offers a quality of life synonymous with small towns, yet pampers residents with the modern conveniences and amenities found in the big cities.

To the more than 11,000 Sierra Madre residents, there is no other place quite like it. Here, you’ll find an ideal climate that makes it easy to take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities, as well as a wide variety of beautiful housing styles, many with breathtaking mountain and valley views. Combined with a full range of parks, hiking and recreational opportunities, a host of volunteer and civic organizations and plenty of unique shopping and dining establishments, it’s easy to see why Sierra Madre is considered one of the finest communities in Southern California.


In 2006, Sierra Madre entered the prestigious All-America City competition. This is the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious civic recognition program. Since 1949, more than 4,000 communities have competed and nearly 500 have been designated “All-America Cities.”

The Award encourages and recognizes civic excellence, honoring the communities in which citizens, government, businesses and nonprofit organizations demonstrate successful resolution of critical community issues. We’re proud to say that of the over 600 communities that started the application process for the All-America City award, Sierra Madre was short-listed as a finalist and competed in the Grand Finals. Although Sierra Madre did not take the title in 2006, the community is eager and excited to compete again in the hopes of winning in 2007.
