Pasadena is a wonderful city! It is very safe and a great place to live. Old Pasadena is a great shopping destination and has many interesting restaurants and stores. Pasadena is also very family friendly and there are many fun things to do with children such as visiting museums or going to the Rose Bowl. My one criticism is that the public schools are not good. Overall, Pasadena is an amazing place to live!
