Hometown Pasadena

From Sierra Madre and Altadena to South Pasadena and Old Town, the long-awaited third edition of Hometown Pasadena is a new kind of city book that provides a fresh look at everything this world-class small city has to offer, created by an all-star team of longtime locals who dig deep to reflect the place they find so special. Featuring lots of interviews and features, it inspires readers to both explore the famous destinations (the Huntington, the Norton Simon, Caltech, the Rose Bowl) and the lesser-known joys (the architectural walks, the hidden gardens, the off-the-beaten-path cafes and shops).
