Runner-up and Reader Pick: Best 'burb

Oak-shaded bungalows, good schools, and a pretty little downtown: South Pasadena feels like a village set in greater L.A.  It’s famous for successfully battling a freeway that would have cut it in half. Now commuters hop on the Gold Line metro, and Caltrans is set to sell houses along the former freeway right-of-way.

Population: 25,546

Median home price: $852,750

Great schools score: 9 out of 10
