Known as the "City of Roses," Pasadena hosts the annual Rose Bowl parade and football game.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Blackbird Airpark and Eaton Canyon. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Pasadena: University of California Riverside Botanic Gardens (in Riverside), Planes of Fame Air Museum (in Chino) and Woodland Trail 1E23 (in Fawnskin). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Norton Simon Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and explore the fascinating landscape at The Huntington Desert Garden.
