City Guide
“Come on Pasadena, do the locomotion …”

Many attractions are within walking distance, and public transportation (Metrolink or the city bus) is available.


South Pasadena Anchored by Colorado Boulevard (think of a Bleaker-Beale Street hybrid with a touch of Hollywood Blvd. and a hint of 5th Avenue), South Pasadena boasts the bulk of the city’s entertainment, shopping, and dining options. South Pasadena is the city’s cultural and economic hub and one of SoCal’s most coveted living areas. Studio units in South Pasadena are likely to cost you $1300 or more. Factor in utilities – including air conditioning that you might feel compelled to run nearly year-round – and you’re looking at $1500 minimum for even the most modest living quarters

Plenty of more modestly priced lodgings are available in the city’s northern and eastern districts. If you want to stay close to Pasadena’s southern-based epicenter, you might want to check out the variety of apartments, condos, and homes for rent just north of Highway 210. They are also much more affordable, and renters can often find up-to-date, quality lodgings for $1200 or so.

On the east side, closer to Temple City, apartments and rental homes often pop up for $1200-$1400. Not only are these tree-lined neighborhoods visually appealing but they are often priced to move quickly (sometimes as low as a grand.)

Words to the SoCal Wise

Here a few tricks of the trade that will help you find the perfect place to call home in Pasadena:

Remember that in Pasadena you’re paying not so much for amenities as you are location, location, and more location. So if living in the heart of the city is less important to you than living near the heart of the city, you may want to consider the eastern and northern neighborhoods.

Sometimes crazy-sweet apartment deals do pop up (yes, even in South Pasadena) when landlords need to fill a unit quickly. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to submit an application, because they won’t be available for long.

We get the feeling that once you get to know Pasadena, you’ll feel the same way.

Hope this helps, and welcome to the City of Roses!
