Travel Safety

Welcome back to Pasadena. With one of the highest vaccination rates in the country, the California Golden State is officially open and Pasadena tourism businesses are ready to welcome visitors.

Visitors are still strongly encouraged to check with individual attractions and businesses for hours of operations, advanced registration requirements, and guidelines. We encourage everyone get vaccinated. They are a safe and effective way to prevent COVID. As of July 20, 88% of Pasadenans have received at least one dose and 78.5% are fully vaccinated (Details).

Mask Requirements

Due to the significant increase in case rates over the past three weeks, changes to the mask requirements have been made. Effective July 22nd, masks will be required for all individuals regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor public settings, venues, gatherings and businesses. (Details).


All guests are advised to call ahead to check business operations and hours. Many of our museums and attractions require reservations.
