    Eaton Canyon Park

    Pasadena, CA
    13 reviews

    I've been wanting to hike at Eaton for quite some time now and finally had a chance to do so this past weekend. We had a great time and spent 7 very leisurely hours up here. First things first, I wanted to hike to the waterfall and that's exactly what we did. This is a very easy hike that just ...

    Pasadena Tournament Of Roses

    391 South Orange Grove Boulevard, Pasadena, CA
    11 reviews

    It is my first time attending this very popular event, living here so long yet it is my first time. This year rose parade is the 125th anniversary. It has a lot of variety of float from local city, Nonprofit, University, to Private Corporation. One of my concern is the parking, surprise it was not really an issue. Our group ...

    sam merrill trail

    Echo Mountain
    2 reviews

    So we started off the morning all excited to go hike Runyon Canyon... Lo and Behold some major event like a marathon or something was blocking us from making it to Runyon's starting point. So we somehow ended up at the base of the Sam Merrill Trail. This did not suck. We ended up climbing up to the old house ...

    Rose Bowl Stadium

    1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena, CA 91103-2813
    42 reviews

    Great place to get some exercise. You will find people down there at all hours walking, running, biking, roller blading around the Rose Bowl. The loop around the bowl is exactly 3 miles. There is a hot dog stand at north end which is opened when the golf course is open. Grab a dog and a drink and watch the ...

    Arclight Cinemas Pasadena

    336 E colorado blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101, United States
    18 reviews

    The best place to go to the movies. Buy your tickets online and reserve your actual seat in the theater. Always get the best seats in the house without having to wait on a line. The theaters are spacious and immaculate with great sound and comfortable seats. I only see movies here.

    King Taco

    45 N. Arroyo Parkway, Pasadena, CA 91103
    8 reviews

    If you are looking for great Mexican style taco at a reasonable price. This is the place. I had a craving for a simple non-Taco Bell taco and happen to find this place on yelp. I know 5 stars may seem a bit crazy, but for me its simply about the taste of the food nothing else matters. I ordered ...

    Apple Store Pasadena

    54 West Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA
    3 reviews

    While many Apple Stores have fancy, modernist exteriors, this one fits into the decor of Old Pasadena. The inside is what you'd expect, including having to find someone to take your money since there is no obvious cashier.

    Pasadena Farmers Market

    2925 North Sierra Madre Boulevard, Pasadena, California
    3 reviews

    I try to make it to this Farmers' Market whenever possible, because my favorite "Sourdough Man" is here: Bezian's Bakery. This is some of the best sourdough I have ever found and he makes so many varieties! If you don't want a whole loaf, he sells minis of all the flavors for about $1.00 - $1.25 each.

    Bungalow Heaven

    East Washington Boulevard and North Hill Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91104
    2 reviews

    Highly recommended for those interested in old California culture, the neighborhood houses literally hundreds of the area's oldest and most endearing bungalows. Driving through this historically significant and aesthetically pleasing Pasadena locale is like being transported back to early-20th century L.A.

    2 reviews

    Well, for the first time in my life, I went iceskating... with 7 children and another adult (work related). It was one of the scariest things I've ever been asked to do at my job! Yeah sure, I roller bladed a lot when I was younger but no matter what people say, I don't think its the same as ice ...

    There is always something going on to get you into trouble here. A bunch of shopping, some chain stores, some one off locations; great bars; great restaurants; some crappy ones too, but so what... mostly fun stuff over in Old Town Pas. Pro Tip: Parking at a meter after 8pm is free Sun-Th. There are literally a ton of restaurants, ...

    There is a few things I absolutely love about this place! Aside from it being an historic landmark in Pasadena, it's also a very cozy, intimate playhouse that displayed a great commitment to the American theater. This Venue is absolutely gorgeous from the courtyard fountain to inside of the theater. We were seated on the second level. The stage and ...

    Norton Simon Museum

    411 West Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA 91105-1825
    12 reviews

    Most people do not get to this gem in their LA travels, but it's really worth it if you are an art fan. It's not super large, but they have enough substantial pieces and interesting exhibits to warrant a trip. Great collection of Impressionist pieces and a sculpture garden that is a great place to sit in and enjoy a ...

    Ok so they have some tasty vittles and some tasty beers... but lets be honest... Yelp reviews dont disclose that much truth... I asked for what I thought was fairly basic and got a crazy answer that didnt quite go with everything that I had scanned from tips while waiting for my buddy to show up here... They are not ...

    Some day I need to make it here for HH or for grub... as it is, I always seem to be here near the end of the night. It is always a fun joint though... They have a very helpful menu and on it they list a number of Whiskeys, Bourbons, Scotches, etc. Definitely a packed joint and a fun ...
