    Renter's guide to Pomona, CA

    Pomona is a suburb of Los Angeles, located in LA county, on the border with San Bernardino County. As such, it enjoys proximity to the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, though the city itself is mostly urban. This mainly residential suburb is most popular with families.

    With a population of 152,366, Pomona has a population density of 6,676 people per square mile, which is considered high. Indeed, neighboring Ontario is more than twice as big in terms of area but has a population of just 171,000. Compared to LA proper however, Pomona is more than 25 times smaller, though it still ranks among the top 12 most populous cities in the LA metropolitan area.

    Downtown LA is around 30 miles east of Pomona and can be reached fairly easily on interstate 10. Travel times can vary, but on average it should take around 45 minutes. Long Beach is 42 miles southwest, while San Diego, 115 miles southeast, can be reached in around 2 hours.

    With hot, dry summers, high winds from the mountains, and warm winters, Pomona sees very little rainfall throughout the year. It’s classified as having a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, with summer highs averaging out at 92°F in August, and winter lows of around 43°F in January.

    Tips for renting in Pomona, CA

    Your opinion and experience of living in Pomona can vary drastically depending on where you’re coming from. If you’re moving from LA proper, you can expect Pomona to be far quieter, with a slower, more rural and suburban pace of life. Having said that, the downtown area is still rather vibrant compared to other suburban cities of LA, and the city has a thriving arts and culture scene. You’ll also find that you’ll get more bang for your buck, as living costs are lower compared to downtown LA. On the flip side, you’ll probably have to travel further for work, and face long, frustrating commute times, as there are fewer employment opportunities within the city.

    If you’re moving to Pomona from another state, the cost of living is 10% above the national average, so the chances are you’ll find it more expensive than you’re used to. The weather can also be an issue for those from colder, more northerly states, and the scorching summers can take some getting used to. Seek out houses or apartments with AC for a more comfortable life, and if you drive a private vehicle, AC will make those commutes a little better.
