Located in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Sunland was, historically, an agricultural region, with one of the largest olive orchards in Los Angeles County in the late 1800s. The hillsides of the Monte Vista Valley were the site of vineyards which specialized in the growing of table grapes. In the early 1900s Sunland was one of the communities that became home to a utopian group known as “The Little Landers.” Sunland and its sister neighborhood, Tujunga, were regarded as sanctuaries for asthma sufferers because of their reputation for having clean mountain air. Both communities are located at an elevation about 2000 ft. above sea level.

As with many of its neighboring communities, Sunland has had a place in the film industry as a shooting location for feature films including “Mildred Pierce,” “All The King’s Men,” and “Ernest Goes to Camp.” Sunland also boasts the only golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus in L.A. County — Angeles National Golf Club.

Like other communities in Los Angeles County, residents have to deal with intense traffic on the major roadways around the area — I-210, known as the Foothill Freeway, I-5, 405, and CA 118, also known as the Ronald Reagan Freeway.  Unfortunately, a drive of about 20 miles could take hours, especially during rush hour, on some of the most congested roads in the country. Add to that the amount of aggressive, distracted drivers and those exceeding the speed limit on the area’s roadways, and it should come as no surprise the Los Angeles metro area is considered to be one of the most dangerous in the U.S. when it comes to car accidents.

If you live in Sunland and use area highways to commute back and forth from home, you need to make sure that you have the best insurance coverage possible in the event that you’re involved in an accident.
