For locals in SoCal, the first you think of when it comes to Pasadena are, of course, roses. Since January 1, 1980, Pasadena, California has played host to the world-famous Tournament of Roses Parade, and subsequent college football bowl the, Rose Bowl. Every year hundreds of thousands of spectators gather along Colorado Boulevard, which makes up the five-mile route for the flower-covered floats to sail across. It’s a famed, favorite local tradition that everyone should experience!
The name Pasadena is a Chippewa word meaning, “Crown of the Valley”, though the area’s first inhabitants were actually the Hahamog-na Tribe, a branch of the Tongva Indians, otherwise known as the Gabrielino. Throughout the 1880’s, as the city made room for tourist hotels, Pasadena became a winter resort town for wealthy Easterners escaping the cold. Tourism to the area ultimately encouraged the development of new neighborhoods and business districts, which increased traffic in and out of the Downtown Los Angeles area as well.
Today, Old Town Pasadena is one of the most vibrant shopping, dining, and nightlife hubs in the greater L.A. area. Local favorites include: Armory Center for the Arts, Kidspace Children’s Museum, The Huntington Library, Levitt Pavilion for Performing Arts, Norton Simon Museum, Castle Green, The Gamble House, Wrigley Mansion, Anthropologie, Apple Store, Athleta, Banana Republic, The Bea’s knees, Urth Cafe, Bird Pick, Blick Art Materials, Brownlow + Chen, C’est La Vie, Coolhaus, Cop.Copine, Cotton On, Dots Cupcakes, Enchantress Co., Everson Royce, Farrow & Ball, Free People, Gold Bug, Goorin Bros., Homage, Lula Mae, Maude Woods, Mignon Chocolate, Palmpring, Panache Bridal, Paper Source, Roche Bobois, The Retro Store, The Shade Store, The Soap Kitchen, URB-E, TWIGZZ, Vince, We Olive, Whitmore Rare Books, and many, many, many more.
