climate - 4/6/2015
The weather in Pasadena, CA is rather pleasant. It does not get cold here, it used to be around the first two weeks of December it could go down to 32-28 F, only a few nights. Christmas day is around 80 F. I find spring mornings colder than any other time of year. As for rain, it is usually in February, 11-14 inches if we are lucky. That is usually the max for all year. Summer does not start here till the end of July and gets hotter with every month after till around Thanksgiving. August,September, October usually in high 90's but can easily go to 104, 106 for a couple of days at a time. Most of the year there is a bright white haze that I can not stand, many people get headaches from it, myself included. Night temps are between 55-65 F.Really nothing Read More

Weather in Pasadena, CA - 2/14/2013
I have lived in Pasadena for over 40 years and it has been a pleasure in terms of year round good weather. We have occasional Santa Ana winds that have caused some damage but still very satisfied with the weather conditions. After looking at other places to move to, we can find no other place with the good weather we have enjoyed here. So we will miss it, but not the California Read More

Pasadena - like a little slice of the mid-west, wi - 11/22/2009
We moved this past summer to Pasadena from the mid-west, and we could not be happier. Actually, we probably will be happier in January and February, when we are not shoveling snow! Pasadena is a GREAT place to live. We walk to almost everything, including our jobs, restaurants, the library, groceries, and any kind of entertainment you could want. The only down side we have found is the schools. They are so bad that most people are forced to put their kids in private schools, which we did. The good news is that there are so many wonderful private schools near by to choose from. Yes, it is more expensive to live here, but we consider it a "weather tax", and it is worth every penny. Though it is a big city, Pasadena has the quaint feel of the mid west, with lots of trees, and very friendly people. We love it Read More

Not just for little old ladies.......??? - 8/11/2009
Everyone has heard of this quint expression of Little Old Lady from Pasadena...which
is not entirely untrue since there are many retired people living here. I remembered
seeing older people everywhere I went in the 1970s when I lived there as a teenager.
An old couple lived next door to us whom we called "Grandpa" who drove a 1950s car.
Today there maybe more younger people due to the renewal of the OLD PASADENA section
where sidewalk cafes and famous chains like HOOTERS open shops. Homes also reminded
one of the age of the city with its many 1920 style homes. The City Hall area with its famous historic library also give a feeling of a highly cultured historic city.
Many famous tourist must-sees are also located in or near Pasadena, including the Huntington Library with its many species of living plants and flowers. Of course, every New Year, we have the ROSE PARADE with the Princess elected from local school
beauty pageant.

Overrated, like much of the LA metro area - 2/2/2009
While there are parts of Pasadena that are very urbane and elite, most of it is overpriced unless you bought in back 30 years ago when the houses had more reasonable prices. While the crime rate is low, there is no shortage of sketchy people out on the streets. All too often folks here are just too loud, much of the city has a surprisingly urban and ghetto attitude. Almost every night the helicopters are circling around. Cars with overloaded sound systems blast through the neighborhood, setting off the car alarms, which makes the dogs bark, which makes the kids scream- it's just too much for someone looking for a little peace and quiet after a long day at work.

Like much of the Southland, Pasadena was over-developed, little greenspace set aside and poor city planning have marred what was a charming little city. Even in the year since I've moved here I've watched views of the mountains become obstructed by awful high rise "luxury" apartment complexes.
