Whether your a Pasadena Condos home owner, San Marino Condos home owner, Arcadia Condos home Owner, or anything else in between, these areas are known to be the most “suburban” areas in Los Angeles County. The closer you get to the mountains, the more “suburban” the places get.
The suburban benefits are clear. Residents enjoy more space, easier parking, communities bonds are stronger, people tend to be more laid back, and it may be much easier and more conducive to raising a family. But in the case of Pasadena, you also are a 10 to 25 mile car ride the urban attractions offered in Los Angeles.
This means whether you want to go to Staples Center, the Convention Center, Concerts, Art or other weekly events in Downtown, the plays and clubs of Hollywood, the sunny beach of Santa Monica or Malibu, or the high-end shops of Beverly Hills, you will have 20 -30 minute access to all these things, while maintaining the benefits of living in the suburbs.
