Things to do in PASADENA with kids

Not far from Los Angeles is Pasadena, and it’s just as exciting as the City of Angels itself! There is sunshine, water fun, parks, history, learning, indoor play, and adventure all waiting for the kids who visit – and parents too!

Pasadena is filled with things to do with kids, offering year around excitement for those family days out.  For those kids who love to experiment, play and learn all at the same time, why not head to attractions such as Kidspace Children’s Museum!

For indoor play, there are a host of places those little ones can have fun, such as Magical Playground, and Under The Sea Indoor Playground!

The beautiful California outdoors is ready for families at The Arboretum with botanical gardens, and Eaton Canyon with nature trails, and there is even history in this vibrant and electric city, with places like Heritage Square – a living history museum where you can go back in time to the Civil War.

Food tours, bowling, art galleries…it’s all there in Pasadena – where the sun doesn’t seem to stop shining!
