Horseriding enthusiasts looking to settle in the San Gabriel Valley often consider the city of San Dimas because it is an equestrian-oriented community like the nearby city of Bradbury.
A 2000 census estimated that the median income per family was $72,124. Most students are served by the Bonita Unified School District, while residents of the Via Verde neighborhoods send their children either to Covina Valley Unified School District or Charter Oak Unified School District.
The city reflects the Spanish heritage of the San Gabriel Valley in taking its name from the Gospels, from one of the two thieves who was crucified alongside Jesus.
When people think of San Dimas, however, they are probably less inclined to think of this reference to the New Testament and may probably remember some pop culture trivia instead. San Dimas was the home of those “most excellent” two young dudes, Bill and Ted, whose two films in the late 1980s and early 1990s (“Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey”) were set in San Dimas.
San Dimas is also a popular spot in the summer thanks to the water park Raging Waters, which calls San Dimas home. There’s no better place to be, except for the beach, during those hot, triple-digit months.
