Pasadena—an Indian name that means “Crown of the Valley”—is located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and just 15 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles. Pasadena is home to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), the Rose Bowl, and many shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Within Pasadena’s 1.5-mile downtown core, you’ll find retail areas, cobblestone courtyards, sidewalk bistros, and nightlife in three alluring shopping and entertainment districts: Old Pasadena, the Playhouse District, and South Lake Avenue.
