El Monte is located about twelve miles east of downtown Los Angeles and is intersected by two major Interstates (605 and 10). It's one of the ten largest cities in Los Angeles County, boasting a population of about 120,000 people. Downtown El Monte is a flourishing hub of shopping and dining, and with a new downtown Gateway Project underway things are only looking brighter. The Gateway Project is intended to develop more housing, business, and retail space in the downtown area, and the project as a whole is based around a new transit system that makes it easy to get to and from the downtown area. Beautiful historic architecture and the Tyler Avenue Heritage and Cultural District offer the opportunity to indulge the history and beauty that's made El Monte the city that it is today.
