San Gabriel

Often referred to as the “birthplace of the Los Angeles region,” San Gabriel played a vital role in the development of Los Angeles throughout its history. Mission San Gabriel Arcángel was founded in 1771, laying the foundation for the rich diversity that Los Angeles is known for today. 

The greater San Gabriel Valley, typically referred to as the SGV, is composed of 31 unique cities. This diversity has helped the SGV become known as a gastronomic hotspot. You’ll find delicious and varied cuisine — everything from traditional Mexican cuisine to some of the best Asian restaurants in greater Los Angeles. 

Since you’re only a few miles east of Los Angeles, San Gabriel is a great central location for enjoying the best of Southern California. Everything’s within reach — from beaches and theme parks to luxury boutiques and world-class entertainment.

San Gabriel is home to Unity Prosper Province.
