Whether you like to snow ski, hike, beach comb, or surf, living in Rowland Heights gives you access to all types of outdoor recreation. With Los Angeles a short Metrolink ride away, celebrity-spotting, shopping, and entertainment are also great pastimes.

With gorgeous mountain peaks framing a quaint, diverse community, Rowland Heights apartment rentals are close to the glitz and glamour of LA but far enough away to be a quieter, more peaceful place to call home.
