Known as the “Wistaria City,” the city of Sierra Madre, California, has a stunning backdrop of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. The city earned its nickname from a Wistaria vine on West Carter Avenue that earned recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records. The community is conveniently located between Arcadia to the south and east, and Altadena and Pasadena to the west. In 2007, it received an All-American City award, and today offers the conveniences of city living with small-town charm in the scenic foothills.
Sierra Madre has a long, rich history and was once inhabited by the Tongva Native American tribe. Later it was settled by the Spanish and was eventually incorporated in 1907. In 1961 Sierra Madre joined the Pasadena Unified School District, and today the city has a population of approximately eleven thousand residents. Beyond the world-record-holding Wistaria vine, which happens to be the largest flowering plant in the world, there are many other attractions in this small city. For example, on Sierra Madre Boulevard the Memorial Park hosts exciting events such as the annual Concerts in the Park. And speaking of events, the city also hosts an annual Vine Festival each March. Another must-experience destination in Sierra Madre is the seven-mile Mt. Wilson Trail which is accessible via East Mira Monte Avenue. At the summit of this winding trail, hikers enjoy spectacular views of the Little Santa Anita Canyon.
