pasadena city hall
The Pasadena, California, City Hall has been recently restored and reinforced to withstand earthquakes.  Its interior courtyard is a charming example of a xeriscape garden in the Mediterranean  style.

Pasadena may be the most recognized small city on Planet Earth.  Millions of people around the globe view the Rose Parade marching along Colorado Street on TV every year.  And 99% of the time the weather is sunny on January 1st -- inspiring people in cold climates to move to Southern California or plan a vacation here.  If you intend to visit or relocate to this area, this site should help you find your way around.  

First, a few basic facts about Pasadena:

Population 138,000 Geographic size 22 sq. miles
Median household income 65,400 Ethnic diversity really diverse!

Pasadena visitors should check out Old Town Pasadena to learn about great shopping and dining in this historic neighborhood.  Another shopping area is on Mission Street in South Pasadena, noted for its antique stores.  Parades, street fairs, and free outdoor concerts -- we have them, too.

For both visitors and people planning to relocate to this area, there is a preview of some of Pasadena's residential neighborhoods.  The City is noted for its architects and architecture, particularly homes in the bungalow style.  You will, however, also find outstanding examples of mid-century modern homes as well as Spanish Revival homes in and around the City.
