Nicknamed the "City of Health," Duarte is characterized by its location on historic Route 66, nestled at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.

That tradition continues today with Duarte's City of Hope, a cancer research center and hospital. Around 40 miles away from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and 22 miles from downtown LA, Duarte is a perfectly located escape, a Southern California town with prime access to mountains, nature, and of course the thrills of Hollywood.
