Tujunga is one of Los Angeles' outermost territories, occupying the city's northeast terminus in the foothills and outer canyons of the San Gabriel Mountains. Though commonly understood as a part of the San Fernando Valley
region, Tujunga actually occupies its own small, distinct valley, and though it is geographically delineated from Sunland, its neighbor to the west, Tujuna is actually part of a joint territory—Sunland-Tujunga. By whatever name, the area in question is widely considered a great place to live. Residents enjoy a tucked-away, rural atmosphere and the immense natural beauty of the San Gabriel Mountains.
The 210 freeway to the south is Sunland-Tujunga's only true connection to the rest of Los Angeles County, rendering it firmly less-than-convenient in terms of accessibility, though the commercial and cultural centers of Glendale
are not much more than a stone's throw to the east, and most residents prefer privacy to convenience, anyhow. Other prominent local throughways include Tujunga Canyon Blvd. and Foothill Blvd.
