If you live anywhere in the East Los Angeles area, visiting Pasadena is almost inevitable. What makes Pasadena, and particularly Old Town Pasadena, a fun place to visit are the various places for shopping and good eats. There's a store for everyone in Old Town Pasadena! In addition to nationwide retailers such as H&M or ZARA, there are also local stores and events such as the Farmers Market every Sunday. Pasadena is the perfect balance of the hustle and bustle of city life mixed the leisurely atmosphere of suburban life.
2. Downtown Los Angeles
Distance from Monrovia: 20 miles
One of the things that make Monrovia, CA a convenient place to live is how close it's located to Downtown Los Angeles. When you visit downtown LA, grabbing a bite to eat is a must.

You can always find something interesting at ethnic hubs such as Chinatown and Little Tokyo.
3. Hollywood
Distance from Monrovia: 20 miles
Although Hollywood is mostly a place for tourist and local residents wouldn't normally visit here, it still has its fair share of entertainment. Catch a show at one of the many theatres, or go shopping at the Hollywood & Highland mall. Grab food afterwards in nearby Koreatown for some authentic and delicious Korean food. For healthier activities, hike up to the famous Hollywood sign!
4. Monrovia Canyon Park

There's always new events happening and the rides never get old. It's family friendly and there's something for people of all ages.
