WELCOME TO PASADENA
Pasadena was born in 1873 by Indiana settlers seeking Southern California’s milder, warmer climate. Pasadena’s ideal location provides convenient access to other Southern California destinations. Located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, Pasadena is only fifteen minutes from downtown LA, and thirty minutes to Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley. Beaches from Newport to Malibu are within one hour.
Pasadena is a major economic, cultural, residential and recreational center. It has a robust business life and a population of nearly 134,000. A rich history, combined with a contemporary lifestyle makes Pasadena and its world class restaurants, shopping and museums one of Los Angeles’ most coveted communities.
