Park in the free parking structure. Walk though and see the old stuff. Dont buy in highly overpriced stores. Dont go in the restaurants. But may you find something nice.

This building is located behind the Westin Hotel and seems to draw us to it everytime we visit. The architecture is so fascinating and welcoming.

I like the symmetry of this building and the nice presence it has on an urban scale for the city of Pasadena. If you are into wedding/beauty shots, this is a fun place to go. Almost every time I visit, there are people dressed up...More

While you are touring Pasadena, go to Garfield Street and visit the City Hall. It is a true, restored example of beaux-arts style and is worth the stop.

I don't recommend visiting Pasadena. As others have noted, parking enforcement apparently exists to charge out-of-towners with large parking tickets for parking laws that are not posted anywhere to be seen. There are no signs on the street that give notice as to what is...More

Quiet area despite the smattering of restaurants. Lit up the buildings are lovely from a distance and close up, with the adjacent All Saints Church complex also interesting, if dwarfed by City Hall.

Many of the old Mission Impossible shots were done there and around the City Hall. There is a lot more also.

Not much in the area to see though but worth driving by if yuo are i the area. Pasadean has glorious residential neighbourhoods, museums and public gardens (Arlington, Hntington) and the Cal Tech campus is good for a walk.
