One New Years eve, people are allowed to camp and sleep on the street curb. People do this so they can get a good view of the Rose Parade the following morning.

Make it a Mission via Gold (South Pas)
To experience the charm of South Pasadena, stop at the Mission stop from the Gold Line. I am always delighted by the old look of the area here. Scenes resemble that of a small village more than the modern, western suburban city.Check website for info on schedules and more.
As you pleased!
If you want to be independent and super-productive you got to rent a car, wherever you are in California!Or have your friends driving you around, that would be nice!
Tah Gallery: Tah-Dah! (South Pasadena)
Behind the red door, eye-catching contemporary paintings, jewelry, cloth, and various trinkets fill the quaint Tah Gallery. This is an unpretenious art stop -no snootiness, rather friendly South Pas disposition from the staff who will glady inform the guests.
What to buy: If you got the money, shell out for a contemporary painting, from about $100, or if on the cheaper, get a nice pair of carved stone earrings for mommy. See websites for more ideas!
What to pay: from dozens of dollars to hundreds

Pass a Day in Pleasantville: South Pasadena
Quiet, unassuming and peaceful- and that is just the way that they like in South Pasadena. Just beneath the vastness that is the city ofr Pasadena is its smaller counterpart- South Pasadena -or South Pas as locals call it. Sure, it's lazy to do this but thi is a sleepy little town. Officially, South Pasadena is a seperate entity of just under 3 1/2 square miles. One will be amazed that this wonderful suburban paradise is just a stone's throw from downtown Los Angeles. Come to South Pas to have a slice of Americana and for a beautiful nature walk down tree-lined streets, by lush gardens and other plots of land.

Favorite thing: I felt very safe here even alone at night. It is only 30 minutes to Union Station. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from. The attractions are not close to one another and it seems as though the tours do not really startup until the month of April.
