Fun In The Sun In West Covina, CA 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jun 10, 2010) Located east of the San Gabriel Valley, West Covina is a city with a small town charm. Several times I have traveled there to enjoy restaurants and shopping and seek out entertainment. One of the best restaurants in the city is Seafood Bay Bar & Grill. I am a picky about seafood ...Read More having too strong a taste but this restaurant knows how to prepare seafood perfectly every single time.

Plenty of entertainment and attractions may be found in West Covina for people of all ages. One of the most unique attractions suitable for anyone is the Hurst Ranch Historical Center. This fun museum focuses on the history of ranching in the area and teaches visitors interesting details about how early ranches operated. Visitors are allowed to touch some artifacts and sit in antique vehicles and machinery, making it unlike most museums with all items labeled "do not touch". I truly enjoyed this museum and had a grand time playing with everything!

The city of West Covina is fairly quiet and residents enjoy slightly lower than average violent crime rates compared to most California cities. Access to Interstate 10 makes commuting easier for those working in other parts of the Los Angeles areas. West Covina neighborhoods are quiet and real estate prices are affordable. Read Less

West Covina, CA

West Covina is a suburb of Los Angeles that is located in the San Gabriel Mountains. With a population of over 100,000, West Covina is larger than neighboring Covina. The city is located about 20 miles east of Los Angeles making it a solid option for many who work or study in LA. Traffic in West Covina is a fraction of what it is in LA as Interstate 605 does not experience nearly as much traffic as some of the area's other freeways.

Woodside Village is the preeminent neighborhood in West Covina. It is home to some of the city's best shopping, dining, and schools. You should make sure that your search for a new home includes a visit to Woodside Village. Walnut Grove Intermediate School is a highly rated option for secondary education. Merlinda Elementary School has a reputation for providing quality education to the city's youngest students.

Galster Wilderness Park is a relatively new addition to the city's list of fun things to do. It is a popular choice with kids who like to play on the swings and slides on the playground. Adults like to gather at the picnic tables to relax and talk about life. Walmerado Park is the area's primary baseball field, and Saturday afternoons see future Major Leaguers duke it out on the diamond for local bragging rights. It has a set of bleachers that offer parents and fans a great view of the action on the field. Shadow Oak Park rounds out the list of exciting places in West Covina. It is the city's largest park, and it has a gigantic patch of grass that is good for recreating.

The city's school district may be the largest employer in the city, and they offer job positions to teachers, administrators, and support staff. The Orlando Karaoke Lounge is perhaps the most interesting place to work in West Covina since you get to listen to all of the aspiring contestants on America's Got Talent before they hit the state to get a golden ticket. Dick's Sporting Goods is one of the largest big-box stores in the city. They sell all of the spring gear that you need to enjoy a day at the park, and they employee a large number of teenagers who are looking to save money for college.

Foothill Transit is the area's provider of public transit services. The city's provider offers a number of fixed-routes and para-transit options that are designed to provide coverage to the entire city. With the click of button, a rider can find timetables, route info, and more on their webpage of app. It is a smart alternative for those who do not like to drive.
