Pasadena is a wonderful city! There is all around access to most of the major attractions in southern California. It is a very diverse city with a lot of acceptance, heavily influenced by Los Angeles. Most people you meet on the street or in the store are generally nice and easy to have a conversation with. Pasadena itself is home of the Rose Bowl and offers exciting events year round. Those who live here are proud and happy to do so.

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!
Pasadena is the perfect city for singles, couples and families alike. Situated in the Suburbs of Los Angeles County, this city has the perfect weather and atmosphere. Beautiful houses and amazing apartments and condos. There are many areas full of great restaurants and shopping while having access to major freeways. With such beautiful landscapes and buildings it is perfect for walking and hanging out around the city safely. A great city to live!
