Search Pasadena homes to find one of Southern California’s most historic cities. Founded as the second city in Los Angeles County, after Los Angeles itself, Pasadena real estate has something for everyone. The city’s public schools are highly-regarded, and there are a number of excellent private and parochial schools for families to choose from as well. Higher education is plentiful as well. The California Institute of Technology (or CalTech) is located in the city. Pasadena City College, the local community college, is one of the best in the state.
Pasadena has invested heavily to make its historic Old Town a destination for shoppers, diners, and night clubbers. “One Colorado” is pedestrian-friendly and filled with unique shops and international restaurants. Paseo Colorado is an upscale, open-air mall with lots of national stores, as well as a huge Arclight movie theater.
Many Pasadena homes are built in historic styles, especially Bungalow Heaven, which is a concentration of 800 bungalow homes built from about 1900 to 1930. There is an annual home tour of these gems. Newer construction is available, too, especially mixed-use apartment buildings near the city’s historic core.
Pasadena has a lot to offer for community events. The Tournament of Roses Parade is held every year on New Year’s Day, with floats decorated in a variety of flowers, plants, and seeds. The Rose Bowl football game is held on New Year’s Day as well. The UCLA Bruins play at the stadium, too. Concerts are held regularly at the venue. Residents of Pasadena stay in shape at the Aquatics Center and the Tennis Center, both adjacent to the Rose Bowl.
Many people choose Pasadena for all the home-town events and amenities. It also connects to the rest of Los Angeles via I-210, State Route 110, and State Route 134. The Metro Gold Line has several stops in Pasadena, making it a great location for commuters.
