In August, the Old Pasadena tour tour will have a focus on transportation. From dirt roads to street widening, walking trails to space travel, bicycles to electric cars, Pasadena has been known for advances in transportation since its beginnings. Old Pasadena honors these advancements through its architecture and landscape. During this virtual tour we will take a look at some obvious and hidden locations and mementos that celebrate our evolution in transportation.
Old Pasadena continues to be a shopping and dining destination but without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been destroyed! Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalizations in the country. These tours will be given over Zoom with trained docents who will lead you on a visual walk through the historic district revealing many hidden and unusual architectural details, old alleyways, and historic signs of Pasadena’s original downtown.
