Loma Linda is a unique community of 21,000. The city has been a national center of health and wellness research for decades. Loma Linda offers residents an alternative to the intense, often anonymous, lifestyle so characteristic of modern life. It is no surprise to find numerous families strolling along the city's tree lined streets, or playing in its numerous parks.
That said, for its size, Loma Linda has a decidedly cosmopolitan air. Thanks to the fame of Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC), as many as 25,000 visitors a day come to the city from around the world. Some are patients, others are students, some come to teach, heal or perform research. Many decide to stay. (Loma Linda Chamber of Commerce.)
