Dry, sometimes hot summers average up to 88 degrees during the day, while shorter, more mild winters average about 41 degrees overnight. The Valley is shielded from ocean weather fronts by the mountains, which leaves just 17 inches of rain to fall over Mission Hills a year. The scrub hills south of the Valley often produce pollen and dust that billows over town here, causing some difficulty for seniors with asthma or COPD.

In other categories of expense, such as healthcare, seniors may pay up to 15 percent less than the national average price in Mission Hills.

Seniors ride Metro buses and trains at a discount, and the network offers same-day booking for dial-a-ride and disabled van service in all parts of the Valley where Mission Hills is located.
