A bit about Pasadena

Pasadena is a dynamite city located about 10 minutes northeast of downtown Los Angeles, situated between the San Gabriel Mountains and the Arroyo Seco.  Its City Vision Statement says it all: “Pasadena will combine world class events, science and technology, arts and culture, history and architecture with great neighborhoods and opportunities for all.” Pasadena has lived up to this vision and thus has become one of the highly desirable areas in southern California.

Pasadena is a mecca for architecture and has over 30 Historic Districts.  The area began as a resort town in the 1880’s and has been blessed with an influx of famous architects who have left their crafts mark along the way.  There are beautiful Craftsman Bungalows by Henry and Charles Greene from the early 1900’s, one of them being The Gamble House, built in 1908, an Arts and Crafts masterpiece, known for its comfort, wood details and art.  The 1920’s Revival homes brought in the Spanish Colonials, French Revival, Mission and Mediterranean styles, as well as English Cottage, Tudor, Gothic and more.  Wallace Neff, Myron Hunt and Sylvanus Marston are some of the other extraordinarily talented architects who have graced Pasadena with some of the most beautiful homes in the country.

Things to know and do

Old Town Pasadena is also an Urban Conservation Zone, where the city has preserved the 1920’s commercial buildings, enhancing the existing architectural features and updated store fronts and alleys to create a  successful town center with shops, restaurants and entertainment.  Colorado is the main street, but you can find unique shops and restaurants on the side streets, like Union, Green, Raymond and Walnut. 

Home to the Rose Bowl, Pasadena hosts the annual Rose Bowl Game usually held on January 1st along with the Rose Bowl Parade.  This annual event brings thousands of people into the city. But the Rose Bowl also hosts sporting events and concerts throughout the year, so there is always something to look forward to.

Pasadena is home to many cultural and educational destinations, including the Norton Simon Museum, USC Pacific Asia Museum, the Kidspace Children’s Museum, and the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens (technically in San Marino) as well as California Institute of Technology and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

With its placement along the Arroyo, there are parks, walking and bike paths, hiking trails and wonderful spaces to get out and enjoy all the beauty that Pasadena and Southern California has to offer.  It’s a wonderful place to live.
