Why you’d want to live in Pasadena
Pasadena is an upbeat community just minutes away from downtown Los Angeles. Its beautiful historic districts and architecture lend charm and grace to this family-friendly town. Historic Old Town Pasadena is filled with boutique shops, a diverse dining scene, as well as museums and theaters. The Pasadena Playhouse offers high quality performances in a smaller venue, while the Ice House is a long standing icon offering comedic performances.
Pasadena is also home to many colleges: Pasadena City College, Cal Tech, Art Center College of Design, and Los Angeles College of Music. Of course, no mention of Pasadena is complete without mention of the Rose Bowl, home of the UCLA football team since 1982. The Rose Bowl hosts a famous flea market held the second Sunday of every month, attracting 20,000 buyers each month.
