GoPasadena is a passport to all the fun, culture and urban allure that is Pasadena.

GoPasadena offers the following convenient features:
Interactive, zoomable GPS maps that indicate a visitor’s current location and
selected points of interest (must have connectivity for maps)
- - A description of each location
- - Video/Audio (when available)
- - Images
- - Additional embedded information such as phone numbers, websites, routing to address and text information deliver all the information needed for each stop
“We are pleased to offer this innovative, user-friendly tool to our visitors,” said Michael Ross, CEO, Pasadena Center Operating Company, which oversees the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Nearly one-third of all cell phones in the U.S. are smartphones, and nearly 20 percent of U.S. travelers have downloaded one or more travel-related applications to these phones. This trend will continue to grow, and the CVB is proud we are embracing this technology to better serve our visitors.”
GoPasadena has an easy to use interface that enables users to quickly download the free application, so they can begin enjoying the sights in just minutes.
