    Old Pasadena Walking Tour


    Pasadena Heritage offers their popular in-person Old Pasadena Walking Tour on first Saturdays in 2023 beginning on February 4, and continuing every other month.  Old Pasadena Management District is a proud sponsor of these educational and enjoyable tours of our historic district.  

    Saturday, April 1 - Old Pasadena Walking Tour North

    This month’s Old Pasadena Walking Tour will include the northern section of Old Pasadena, beginning at Memorial Park and walking south through several historic alleyways. This tour features the ruins of Pasadena’s second library, a historic theatre that is now readapted as condominiums, and perhaps one of the most controversial preservation stories regarding an entire block that was saved.

    Old Pasadena is a shopping and dining destination, but without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been destroyed! Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalizations in the country. One of our trained docents will lead you through the historic district and reveal its many hidden and unusual architectural details, old alleyways, and historic signs. 

    The tour is approximately 1.5 hours and covers approximately 1.5 miles.

    Saturdays bi-monthly in 2023:

    Old Pasadena Walking Tour - South
    February 4, June 3, and October 7

    Old Pasadena Walking Tour - North
    April 1,  August 5,  and December 2

    Tickets: $18 Members | $22 Non-members

    Reservations are required, so purchase your tickets beforehand.  Please note that the tours are exterior only.

    Pasadena Walking Film Tour


    On Saturday, April 29th, My Valley Pass is proud to present their first-ever Pasadena Walking Film Tour.  On this offshoot of the popular Pasadena (bus) Film Tour, join My Valley Pass co-founder Jared Cowan for a jaunt through Old Pasadena and the Pasadena Civic Center, and learn about a number of the popular movies and TV shows that have used this visually dynamic and historic area as a filming location. You'll even visit a few locations where a tour bus can't go, including - by way of the gracious support of Visit Pasadena - the grand interior of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

    Space is limited, so get your tickets today!
