Below is some general information about Arcadia:
Arcadia is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States located approximately 13 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley and at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. It is the site of the Santa Anita Park racetrack and home to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. The city had a population of 56,364 at the 2010 census, up from 53,248 at the 2000 census. The city is named after Arcadia, Greece. In 2012, Arcadia was ranked 7th in the nation on CNN Money magazine’s list of towns with highest median home costs. In 2010, Bloomberg Businessweek named Arcadia as one of the Best Places to Raise Your Kids: 2010 for the second year in a row.
Arcadia’s economy is driven by wholesale trade, retail trade, manufacturing, health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment, and recreation. Revenue from the Santa Anita Racetrack has long supported capital improvements for the City of Arcadia, resulting in the City having very little bonded indebtedness. The Westfield Santa Anita mall is a major shopping center in the city. In 2005, the Westfield Santa Anita completed its first phase of expansion featuring a new food court, Sport Chalet, Borders Books and Music, Dave & Busters, numerous smaller retailers, various full-service eateries in an area known as Restaurant Square, and a 16-screen AMC Theatres. In 2008, expansion of the mall continued as the Promenade outdoor structure was completed, with new high-end retailers such as Coach and Talbots. The proposal by Caruso Affiliated and Magna Entertainment to build a second large shopping mall adjacent to Westfield Santa Anita on the grounds of the Santa Anita Park racetrack will not be coming into fruition anytime soon. The controversial project, known as The Shops at Santa Anita, had prompted heated debate among some residents in the community and enormous spending by corporate interests in favor and against the project. If the second mall had been built, the combined size of the two malls will make Arcadia the largest retail shopping district in Los Angeles County. The Shops at Santa Anita, which require City Council approval, would have included signature retail, restaurants, and landscaping featuring a large decorative water display, all situated in what is the race track’s southern parking area, severely curtailing race track parking property.
For primary and secondary education the city is served by the Arcadia Unified School District. Reading scores for the AUSD are 76.6% higher than the state average and math scores are 67.9% higher than the state average. It is estimated that 88% of Arcadia students are at public schools and 12% in private and/or parochial institutions. Arcadia Unified School District has one highly ranked and prestigious high school, Arcadia High School. It is among the few public high schools in California to receive a distinguished GreatSchools Rating of 10 out of 10. There are three middle schools, and six elementary schools, two which are winners in the United States Department of Education’s Blue Ribbon Schools program. Approximately five percent of California schools are awarded this honor each year following a rigorous selection process. Eligibility is based on federal and state criteria including the No Child Left Behind program, Academic Performance Index, and Adequate Yearly Progress. The requirements are many and strict, and are based on such areas as a strong curriculum, solid library media services, professional teachers, and counseling programs at all grade levels. In 2010, BusinessWeek ranked Arcadia as the best place to raise children in the state of California for the second year in a row by, citing the city’s excellent school system as one of the factors in addition to the low crime rate.
The famous U.S. Route 66, immortalized in song and literature, passes through Arcadia, on Huntington Drive in Downtown Arcadia, before turning off onto Colorado Place and then Colorado Street. After intersecting the 210 freeway, Route 66 runs parallel to and south of the freeway, cutting across the middle section of Arcadia. The city is mentioned by Jack Kerouac in his novel On the Road: Sal, the protagonist, is put off by preppy teens when he stops for food at a local drive-in restaurant with a young Mexican woman. The vignette demonstrates the culture clash between the Beatnik way of life and that of 1950s conservative America. In a motel located in Arcadia across the street north-east from Santa Anita Racetrack, author Hunter S. Thompson wrote much of his novel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in the 1970s. In Michael Cunningham’s novel The Hours, Laura Brown mentions that she heard of a man who died in nearby Arcadia. The McDonald brothers, who later began the McDonald’s hamburger restaurant chain, opened their first restaurant, The Airdrome, near Monrovia Airport, on the Arcadia/Monrovia border in 1937. The restaurant was located on historic route 66, now Huntington Drive, but later moved to San Bernardino, California in 1940. In the comic strip Pearls Before Swine, Pastis`s mother lives in Arcadia. The city is mentioned in the twenty-first episode of ABC’s FlashFoward, which is set in Los Angeles. The X-Files episode “Arcadia” demonstrates the downfalls of fascist conformity in the upper-middle class planned communities in the town.
Many films on location (including Tarzan and the Bing Crosby On the Road movies), television shows, most notably Fantasy Island were filmed in Arcadia. A popular visiting site is the house with the bell tower, where Tattoo rang the bell, is the Queen Anne Cottage, located in the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia.

The Santa Anita Park Racetrack is another popular filming locations. The 2003 true story film Seabiscuit was filmed and takes place at the Santa Anita race track. A commercial for Claritin allergy medicine, a Lexus commercial, and three episodes of Grey’s Anatomy have used it as a location. This city was one of the filming locations for the Columbia Pictures 1994 comedy film North. The film Matilda was shot here in 1996. A scene from Step Brothers was shot at the nearby Derby restaurant. Scenes from Mission Impossible 3 were shot at Methodist Hospital. In the movie Cloverfield the scene in which the survivors walk inside Bloomingdale’s was actually filmed inside a Robinsons-May store under reconstruction inside the Westfield Santa Anita in Arcadia. Eagle Eye was also filmed in this location. Scenes from Kicking and Screaming were shot at Foothill Middle School and in Arcadia homes. The film Deal of a Lifetime was completely filmed at Arcadia High School.
