Nestled at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Pasadena sits about ten miles northeast of Downtown Los Angeles. Known as the City of Roses, Pasadena hosts an annual Rose Parade, where a variety of floats covered in flowers file through the streets. Pasadena is also home to Rose Bowl Stadium, which is the site of a yearly championship college football game in addition to a monthly flea market.
Pasadena has a lot more to offer residents than just rose-named events. Should you choose to rent in Pasadena, you will have the option to see where Albert Einstein lived while he taught at Caltech, tour NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, view the vast collection of art at the Norton Simon Museum, enjoy the festivities at the whimsical Doo Dah Parade, admire the intricate architecture of the Gamble House, peruse the shops in Old Pasadena, and let the kids explore the interactive Kidspace Children’s Museum.
