    9:00am–11:00am

    Pasadena Heritage hosts its monthly edition of the Old Pasadena Walking Tour, the organization's most popular tour. Explore Old Pasadena with an experienced docent, see the renaissance, and enjoy the architectural variety, fascinating history, virtually unchanged alleyways, and all the authentic details that keep history alive in the 21st Century.

Instead, today it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalization in the country.

    Ticket information: The cost for the tour is $18 for members and $20 for non-members. Reservations are required. Buy your tickets  at www.pasadenaheritage.org.
