Pasadena (pop. 141,258) is located about 10 miles northeast of Los Angeles and is known for its beautiful architecture, cultural institutions, and outdoor recreational opportunities. The city has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century, when it was first established as a winter resort for the wealthy.

It was founded in 1874 by a group of settlers who were looking to escape the harsh winters of the Midwest. The city's name is derived from the Chippewa word "Pasadena," which means "Valley of the Crown of the Sun." The settlers were drawn to the area's mild climate, natural beauty, and proximity to Los Angeles.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Pasadena experienced a period of rapid growth and development. The city's population grew from just over 1,000 people in 1880 to over 30,000 by 1910. This growth was fueled by the arrival of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1885 and the construction of the Arroyo Seco Parkway in 1940 which made the city easily accessible from Los Angeles.

During this time, Pasadena also became known for its beautiful architecture, particularly the Craftsman and Mediterranean Revival styles. The city is home to many historic buildings, such as the Gamble Garden, the Pasadena City Hall, and the Fenyes Mansion, which are now designated as historic landmarks.

Pasadena is also known for its cultural institutions, such as the Pasadena Playhouse, which is the state theater of California, the Norton Simon Museum, which features an extensive collection of art and artifacts, and the Pasadena Museum of California Art, which showcases the works of California artists. The city is also home to the annual Rose Bowl football game and the Tournament of Roses Parade.

In addition to its cultural and architectural attractions, it is also known for its outdoor recreational opportunities. The city is home to many parks, including the famous Brookside Park, which is home to the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, and the Pasadena Ice Skating Center.
