Discover South Pasadena, CA


Few vacation destinations can compare to the grandeur of Southern California, and when traveling through, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to make camp than in South Pasadena. The city separated from the larger city of Pasadena in the late 1800s as landowners sought more control of their city and today it stands as a vacation destination in its own right.

Today the wide boulevards of Pasadena are lined with leafy old-growth trees that actually conceal its Southern California roots. In fact, the lack of palm trees and the decidedly non-Spanish facades of many of its homes make South Pasadena a popular filming location when studios need to portray a midwestern town.

While Los Angeles traffic can be quite a challenge, it can be alleviated through the use of public transportation. Instead of driving your travel trailer rental in South Pasadena into downtown LA, take the Metro Gold line, which will have you there in just a short while. The best part is you won’t even need to search for parking. When you book an RV in South Pasadena you get all the benefits of the big city without the high prices and crowded streets.

The Great Outdoors

No matter where you are in South Pasadena, you won’t have to go far to get a taste of nature. Hermon Park, also known as Arroyo Seco Park, skirts much of the city’s western edge. There’s a children’s play area, tennis courts, and plenty of walking paths there if you’re just looking for a quiet afternoon in the park.

However, venturing a little farther south on the trails with take you to the Montecito Hills and Ernest E. Debs Park, which has more of a wilderness feel where you can get away from the crowds and truly explore nature. For some great views of the city, make a stop at Raymond Hill on its northern edge.

Another option is to spend the day in Joshua Tree National Park, which is a relatively short drive away. The trees that the park is known for stand up like matchsticks amongst the flat desert landscapes. If you’re into photography, this is a fantastic place to be.
