- City Park-Neighborhood
DescriptionMost famous for the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rosebowl, Pasadena has nonetheless struggled to maintain a small town atmosphere and largely failed. That’s all right, though; it’s not as crowded as some parts of Los Angeles and there’s still plenty to do. Old Town is an excellent pedestrian mall and CalTech is home to the famous Jet Propulsion Laboratory that birthed the space program. City Hall is worth a look for its architecture.
