Living in South Pasadena is a ton of fun as a young adult! There’s a ton of things to do, great shopping, and plenty of opportunities to make new friends every day. There’s about 25,000 of us so you pretty much see a new face everyday depending on which places in the city you visit. We have a ton to choose from for food and restaurants ranging from diners to cafes. We also have some of the best attractions in southern california. Obviously we’ll never beat out LA, however I think we’re close second (no bias here). The Norton Museum allows for great learning without being boring and getting to emerge yourself in all of the nature and information available to you. The Rose Parade is a classic in our town and a must-see attraction as a local resident and tourist. The Botanical Gardens are a must-visit as a tourist or local. As a local I like to visit a couple times every few months to breathe in the beauty and green that is the Botanical Gardens.
