The Farmers Market is open on Fridays from 5 - 9 p.m. It has a bunch of different types of vendors from fruit to arts & crafts. You can eat dinner and have entertainment from a live band. It's a lot of fun for the whole family. It's usually crowded, but it's a nice atmosphere. It's free, you just buy what you want.
24 Hr. Fitness is a great place to have a your workouts. It's located next to a grocery store and a quiznos. The prices aren't bad, but you have to get the salesman to lower you monthly price etc. The atmosphere is clean and the people are friendly.
Torrid has a large selection of plus size clothing for a moderate - high price. It's located inside the West Covina mall. The people are nice, but not too eager to help unless you ask them for it. The clothes are really cool & trendy though.
The Duarte Library has a nice selection of books and is never extremely crowded. The staff is very friendly and eager to help you find whatever it is you are looking for. I went looking for a specific book that I couldn't find, but found it here.
Fetal Fotos is a wonderful place to visit when you are pregnant and want a clear utrasound. The staff was extremely friendly and the experience was amazing. The prices were a little high, but well worth it. You can have a 2, 3, or 4 D picture of you child inside the womb. Highly recommend.
Duarte Pizza Co. makes a good pizza and the prices aren't bad. They deliever and do take out. They have special deals on certain days of the week where pizzas are really cheap, like half price. They're quick too. I recommend ordering from them.
This restaurant is good, but it isn't as clean as a restaurant should be. They have a line of things you can chose from to eat and then you can take it to the man who runs the BBQ and he'll prepare it for you. The food is good, but it's not great.
Wangs Palace has wonderful food. The people are extremely nice and the service is wonderful. They are located right in Old Town Monrovia which is a beautiful area. The menu is filled with wonderful things for both lunch and dinner. Their noodles that they serve with dinner are GREAT! We go there just for those noodles. lol, it's well worth it.
Prix is a great place to get any kind of piercing you may want done. They have a large variety of really cool and hard to find body jewelry. The workers there really know about that professional and answer all your questions. The prices are moderate to high, but the area is kind of expensive. I recommend going here for any body piercing needs you may have.
Red Hot Tattoo & piercing is located right on Duarte rd. just east of Santa Anita. The people who work there are friendly and the work is done well. The prices are a little high though.
