    South Pasadena: Get your kicks on Route 66

    Set on the world's most iconic road - Route 66 - South Pasadena is a large Los Angeles County town in the West San Gabriel Valley. As a random fact, the town is allegedly the longest-running builder of floats for the iconic Tournament of Roses Parade - so there! Featuring unique attractions, museums, and gardens, it’s no wonder South Pasadena vacation rentals should be booked early in this year-round destination, which offers something for all members of the family to enjoy. South Pasadena is only 9 miles from Los Angeles and it’s closest airport is Hollywood Burbank Airport, a.k.a. Bob Hope Airport, just 17 miles away.

    When you're in South Pasadena, try some of these!

    Sporting that cool Route 66 retro vibe, the business district in South Pasadena is teeming with unique mom-and-pop stores where you can basically shop ’til you drop. Mingle with the locals at the Thursday afternoon Farmer’s Market in Mission-West, or sample your way along the streets of nearby Old Pasadena during a 3.5-hour food, history, and culture walking tour. Play a round at Arroyo Seco Golf Course, or take in a performance at the quaint Fremont Centre Theatre. Plus, Garfield Park hosts regular Movies in the Park where you can kick back and relax during the summer season.

    Fun & funky attractions in Pasadena

    Route 66 has always been known for its somewhat quirky roadside attractions, and South Pasadena is no exception. Enjoy an old-fashioned egg cream at Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain, check out the 1925 Rialto Theater, and the 22-foot statue of Chicken Boy. Yes, Chicken Boy. South Pasadena sports lots of parks for your kids, and they’re sure to love Kidspace Children's Museum. Explore art deco and Victorian architecture in Old Pasadena, or see the quintessential arts & crafts style Gamble House. As a bonus when choosing your South Pasadena vacation rentals, you'll only be 30 miles from Disneyland Park!

    South Pasadena: a year-round California vacation destination

    During the hot, dry summers, temperatures in South Pasadena average in the low 80s, while in the cool, wet winters, the average can fall as low as the high 60s. Pasadena can get sweltering during May, so unless you fancy nearly 80% humidity levels, you may want to time your visit before or after. While there’s really no bad time of year to visit Pasadena, visiting during spring and fall means you'll be able to take advantage of cooler temperatures, plus you’ll also find lower prices when booking South Pasadena vacation rentals. It’s a win-win all around.

    South Pasadena: Film stand-in, flora, and fauna

    Set 9 miles northeast of Los Angeles, South Pasadena offers picturesque tree-lined streets, but interestingly enough, since South Pasadena has almost no native palm trees, it’s a frequent film location stand-in for midwestern towns - who knew? Hikers and walkers can get close to nature and wildlife in the Arroyo Seco area, as well as the flora and fauna at pet-friendly Arlington Garden, and you’ll only be 8 miles from the birds and wildlife at Eaton Canyon Nature Center, near the San Gabriel Mountains. Plus, at serene Garfield Park, you'll see some of Pasadena's iconic roses.
