Old Town Pasadena is a main attraction in our city. Thousands of people walk its streets on evenings and weekends, shopping, dining and socializing. Like most interesting places, it has a history and a legacy that the folks at Pasadena Heritage work hard to preserve. Old Pasadena has gone from drab and dingy to one of the finest examples of downtown revitalization in the country. Pasadena Heritage was founded 35 years ago and saving Old Pasadena was a top priority. Without their diligent work, Old Pasadena probably would not exist today.
The Pasadena Heritage Walking Tours are offered on the first Saturday of every month starting at 9 a.m. and leaving from the lobby of the Courtyard Marriott Hotel (180 North Fair Oaks Avenue). A trained guide walks the tour through the area’s alleyways and points out details that would be otherwise missed, such as historical buildings and their original signage.
As you wander Old Pasadena with one of Pasadena Heritage’s trained docents, you will find many beautiful and unusual details. During the research process, it was discovered that the old alleyways had remained virtually unchanged since Pasadena’s earliest days. Some alleyways even retain their historic signs, which are protected today.
The tours are $15 per person and reservations can be made by calling (626) 441-6333. You can find more information about this tour, and about other activities offered by Pasadena Heritage, at www.PasadenaHeritage.org
