Rose Bowl is just one of Pasadena
Springtime may not be the most likely time to think of Pasadena -- known worldwide as the site of the spectacular Rose Parade every January but this Southern California city offers a surprising mix of attractions that makes it an ideal getaway just about any time of year.

Consider, for example, the spring flowers that aren't just used to cover the magnificent floats you see in the Rose Parade. Visit Pasadena in the spring and you'll find them all where they belong in the ground along with a kaleidoscope of colors and vegetation that are visible all over town. Among the city's major attractions are gardens and arboretums that are nothing short of breathtaking.
