Moving to Pasadena offers attractions such as Eaton Canyon

If you’re moving to Pasadena, you’ll soon be in range of some fantastic attractions. While the city is famous for its Tournament of Roses that draws more than 1 million people, there are plenty of everyday attractions to explore. Eaton Canyon, for example, is a great option for an outdoor adventure.


Moving to Pasadena: Great weather, great fun

Moving to Pasadena — a city with beautiful weather year-round — means your family can explore attractions such as Eaton Canyon any time of year.  An easy 3 ½-mile hike to a gorgeous waterfall offers a fun place for a picnic. The hike up is full of boulder hopping and stream crossings. There are tadpoles to catch in the river, too. The Nature Center is packed with interesting plants, geology, animals and the history of the canyon. Many groups (Audubon Society, Native Plant Society and so forth) have meetings open to everyone.

Moving to Pasadena: Take advantage of outdoor exercise

Eaton Canyon offers approximately eight hiking trails and three nature trails, if you’re looking outdoor exercise. You may also schedule a docent-led tour for yourself or your group. To do that, call the Nature Center at (626) 398-5420 for reservations as early as possible to avoid having your date taken by another group.


A number of free public tours are available, as well, including a Family Nature Walk, a Bird Walk, a Plant Walk and more. Dates and times for the walk tend to vary by season, so call the center more information or visit the Eaton Canyon website.


If you feel like spending more time at Eaton Canyon, check out the volunteer opportunities in the garden, trimming paths and in the Nature Center itself. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
