Baldwin Park: A Decent Place Before Dark

I have traveled to Baldwin Park a few times to visit friends in the past year. In all honesty, the city is not a place I would ever want to live. With sky-high rates of violent crimes such as rape and assault coupled with high rates of home burglaries and car theft, the thought of living there is not very enticing. Nearly every week I hear something bad about Baldwin Park on the news. I have lived in Los Angeles for several years and know two people who have lived there for 8 years and detest the city. Real estate rates are reasonable, but the risk of crime isn't worth living there to most.

Although the city of Baldwin Park is not an ideal place to live, it certainly isn't a bad place for a day trip. Most of the crimes that take place in Baldwin Park occur after dark and are concentrated to residential areas. There is a phenomenal Mexican dining venue there called the Guadalajara Grill in the Town Center area. The food is scrumptious and the staff are friendly and fun. Also of interest is the Baldwin Park Performing Arts Center for daytime activities.
