Destination guide

What's going on in Pasadena?

There’s a lot going on in Pasadena. It’s one of the most populated cities in the country, and it’s within proximity of vibrant Houston. You didn’t book a Pasadena vacation rental to be there, though—you’re very much here, in the center of a working-class town that offers a thriving arts and culture scene, an interesting history (Urban Cowboy was shot here!), and phenomenal opportunities to enjoy the natural wonders that make Texas so breathtaking. It’s hard to resist that kind of personality!

Things to do

Pasadena attractions are serious

You don’t have to go far from your Pasadena vacation rental to enjoy some serious attractions. One of the most impressive is the Armand Bayou Nature Center, where forests and wetland prairies are respectfully preserved. Show some love for the city at the Heritage Park and Museum, a quaint little stop offering antiques on display and sharing the area’s fascinating history. When you’ve had your fill of history, it’s off to the Houston Zoo, where you can visit thousands of different types of animals in a stunning environment.


An industrial town with personality

Being more of an industrial town, Pasadena and its vicinity is still full of things to do. Delve into the shopping scene before making your way to one of the area’s many buzzy restaurants. If you’re up for an exciting tour, make your way to Houston, only about 20 minutes away, and book yourself a guided walk, a Segway, or even a culinary excursion where you can eat your way through the city. Escape your Pasadena vacation rental and come get pampered in a plush spa before making your way to a local piano bar for some live music and cocktails.


Pack your rain boots—we're headed to Pasadena!

It’s usually sunny in Pasadena, but it also rains here—and plenty. The city gets about 55 inches of rain annually, so be sure to pack those rain boots as you prepare for your Pasadena vacation rental. On the plus side, you’ll never see an inch of snow, and it’s sunny over 200 days of the year. Summer temperatures may top out in the 90s on some days, making it one of the country’s more comfortable and pleasant cities in which to reside (just mind the humidity). If you'd prefer a more average climate, book your getaway for spring—it’s cool, it’s warm, and it’s comfortable all at once.

Natural features

Gentle waves and walking trails in Pasadena

Pasadena is characterized by mostly flat lands and bordered by the Houston Ship Channel and Galveston Bay. Sandy El Jardin Beach offers a lovely spot to get away. While the waters aren't surf-friendly, they do provide gentle waves and a fun spot to swim. There are many pleasant walking trails throughout the area, too, providing a scenic connection to Houston. Some stretch for miles and offer excellent sunrise- and sunset-watching opportunities, while others are ideal if you prefer the simplicity and quiet ambiance of a natural park.
