City of Roses

Known as the "City of Roses," Pasadena hosts the annual Rose Bowl parade and football game. The city's popularity grew quickly after the annexation of California in 1848, making it a resort town by the 1850s. The remnants of this era can still be seen up and down the city streets. Today the city serves as a cultural hub in the San Gabriel Valley. Art and technology meet in the form of the nationally recognized California Institute of Technology and a handful of museums. Since its inception, the city has attracted creative residents who have crafted its architecture and given the city a laid-back vibe. Bohemian traditions are celebrated every year in the Doo Dah Parade, where music, art, and flamboyance meet for one large party. Pasadena is in California (CA).
