Arroyo Seco

The tranquil 132-acre Arroyo Seco is home to some of the city’s most treasured landmarks. The renowned Rose Bowl Stadium, built in 1922, is a popular venue for everything from concerts to football games. Pasadena's famed Colorado Street Bridge gives way to the beautiful Richard H. Chambers U.S. Court of Appeals, housed in what was originally the Vista del Arroyo Hotel. Further up Arroyo Boulevard is La Casita del Arroyo Clubhouse. Built in 1933, this "little house" was constructed entirely of stone taken from the Arroyo itself. Nestled amongst the historical sites are some of Pasadena's most beautiful homes, many of which have outstanding nature views.

Craftsman Bohemia

The lower Arroyo Seco was settled around1910 by artists and other bohemians drawn to the lovely oak glen. Many of the people who built their homes here valued the spirit of nature and simplicity found in the Craftsman aesthetic. The artistic beginnings of this neighborhood are evident in the beauty of Craftsman Bohemia's rugged, woody homes.

Orange Grove - Victorian Triumphant

As the prime residential street in Pasadena pre-1900, this is one of the few neighborhoods that can provide turn of the century homes in good repair. Many of the one-time grand estates owned by wealthy East Coast families have since been converted into garden apartments, but beautiful single family homes can still be found on Orange Grove's quieter side streets.
