Travel Advisory

This page is meant to provide you with the latest advisories to ensure that you have a safe, smooth experience in our destination.

Health Safety

We look forward to welcoming you again soon when you are ready. Our businesses have made the necessary changes to their operations so that Pasadena can safely welcome guests. You will notice social distancing measures, enhanced sanitation practices, reservation requirements, and changes in offerings. We highly recommend calling ahead of time and reviewing each business website for hours, restrictions and ticket information.

We are asking all residents and visitors to travel thoughtfully and safely. Face coverings help to protect you and those around you. They are required in public settings throughout California. Socially distancing yourself at least six feet from members outside of your household is an important step in slowing the spread. When you are eligible, make sure you get vaccinated to ensure you're protected.

UPDATE: We are pleased to share that Pasadena has transitioned to the orange tier on Monday, April 5th. We expect that business restrictions will be removed in California beginning June 15th, as long as hospitalizations continue to decrease and vaccination rates continue upwards.
