Summer is winding and down and while there is still time to get away, you may not have the time to. With school starting soon and the hassle and expense of planning a trip, it can be easier to just stay home. Luckily, there are plenty of ways that you can experience a vacation just by hanging around Pasadena.
The first order of business is to experience Pasadena in a whole new way. Check out Trip Advisor for travelers’ recommendations of the best places to go and places to stay. Just spending a night in one of the city’s hotels can be a great way to feel refreshed and renewed without stepping foot in an airport.
The Langham is a luxurious way to treat yourself and your significant other to a local getaway and oftentimes they have specials and deals. There is also The Westin and the Courtyard by Marriott, which have the benefit of being in walking distance to all of the restaurants and bars of Old Town Pasadena so you don’t have to worry about getting home.
Even if you don’t spend a night away, you can enjoy some of the restaurants that are popular with travelers to our fair city. Parkway Grill, Luggage Room Pizzeria and The Royce at the Langham all top the list of Trip Advisor reviewers’ favorite places around town. Another look at the lengthy list may yield some surprising discoveries of new places to try or a reminder of old favorites.
If you don’t have a chance to plan an end of summer getaway then experiencing the city in a new way can be a fun alternative.
