Visit Pasadena CaliforniaWritten by David G. Hallstrom, Sr.
No one thinks about city of Pasadena, California, unless it is Rose Bowl or Rose Parade time, except for Los Angeles County residents and people who hear song "Little Old Lady From Pasadena".
When tourists think about visiting California they most often think about going to Disneyland or cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco or beach cities like Long Beach, Monterey, Newport Beach, San Diego, Santa Monica, etc.. Very few of them think about visiting or staying in "small town" Pasadena and that is a big mistake.
No matter what you are looking for in a vacation or what you wish to do you can find it in or near Pasadena. The city itself has over four hundred (400) restaurants that serve amost any type of food that you can imagine, dozens of art galleries and antique shops, fine museums like Huntington Library and Norton Simon Museum of Art, hotels of all categories from inexpensive motels to Ritz Carlton, night clubs and comedy clubs, beautiful homes with magnificent gardens that can be seen while driving through city, over two hundred (200) churches, shopping galore and much more.
