Is Alhambra boring? Readers weigh in

Real estate blog Movoto named Alhambra in April the sixth most boring city in California, and we asked our readers if they agreed.

In comments on our story, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as anonymous comments on our poll, many readers defended Alhambra's offerings, arguing that the city is a fun place to visit. Other readers agreed with Movoto and said that Alhambra is indeed boring, while some added that what makes Alhambra quiet — a lack of outdoor activities and live music venues and a bevy of fast food restaurants, according to Movoto — is what also makes it a safe place to live.

Read some of their comments below and let us know what you think.
