I know I've mentioned it before but we would live there if the opportunity arose. We went once for 3 months, rented a short let apartment, and although we couldn't work, we lived a normal life to a degree as we had to do the laundry, shopping and cleaning, we LOVED it and we would certainly like to do that again one day.
So what do we like about Pasadena CA?
One of our favourite places is Fairoaks Pharmacy, it's an old fashioned soda fountain on old Route 66 with a pharmacy attached, it also has a great little gift shop full of vintage and retro goodies. The food is delicious too!!
The Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market, this is just so overwhelming! It's the biggest flea market I've ever been to stacked high with vintage clothes, furniture, jewellery, you name it, it's here, you could spend a whole day looking around, it is PURE heaven!
Palm trees, there are huge gigantic palm trees everywhere in Pasadena, Palm Trees make me smile!!
We love Pasadena so much we have vintage postcards in our living room of the city, as a reminder of where we always want to be!
This is a picture of our pool in the apartment building we stayed in whilst we were there for those 3 months! Yes the sky was this clear and blue nearly every day *sigh*
The outdoors lifestyle, something we just don't have in the UK, we just love it!
There is soooo much more about Pasadena we love. We'll be back one day, we'll be back!!
