Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I want something affordable, with a lot of parking, and maybe with close by amenities like shops, food, and carwashes

Thanks
monrovia isn't too far at all just hope on the 210 for a few miles. and colorado blvd has all you seek as far as entertainment...even the occasional albee
