California is home to some of the most beautiful cities in the United States, but Pasadena may stand above the rest. This southern California enclave offers beautiful coastal vistas combined with a temperate climate that’s hard to beat. That, combined a rich sports and cultural heritage make the city a must-see.
Pasadena’s most recognizable landmark is almost unquestionably the Rose Bowl. This iconic stadium has been a staple in college football since it opened in 1922. The venue seats around 91,000 fans and has been home to UCLA since it opened. Although the Bruins home games are certainly a big event, one time a year the stadium is in the national spotlight.
The arena annually hosts the legendary Rose Bowl game, which is held every year on New Year’s Day, along with the much-anticipated Tournament of Roses Parade. The event has seen some of the best college football games of all time and fans travel from across the country just to take part.
The Rose Bowl and its classic games may be a large draw, but it is certainly not the only thing that Pasadena has to offer. If you’re in the market for some more cultural fare, you’ll definitely want to stop by the Pasadena Conference Center. This expansive venues hosts a number of concerts by the Pasadena Symphony throughout the year, and has been the location of a slew of events including the Emmy Awards, American Idol and the People’s Choice Awards.
If you’re looking to take in a few plays, the Center also welcomes several travelling Broadway shows throughout the year. However, if you prefer a smaller venue, the Pasadena Playhouse is for you. The 686-seat theater is the site of numerous plays, artistic events and other engagements throughout the year and has seen many famous actors pass through its doors.
Whatever you choose to do in Pasadena, you have to take a strip down Orange Grove Boulevard, one of the most picturesque streets in the United States. It’s not just the lavish estates that make this stretch of road attractive, but it is also home to the Norton Simon Museum, which houses art from nearly every time period.
