Spend a day here: Have breakfast at Urth Caffe and enjoy an organic tea or coffee. Pick up your favorite produce at the famous South Pasadena Farmer's Market. Then, head to the Norton Simon Museum to take in the latest collection on display. Then, enjoy the outdoors at the Huntington Library and Gardens. Don't miss the cactus garden or the rose-filled paths. Stroll through Old Town for all the designer shops, and stop at Patagonia for your outdoor gear. For dinner, reserve a table at Abricott for French-Asian fusion. Enjoy a concert under the stars at the Levitt Pavilion. Then, for an evening out, head to the 1886 Bar at The Raymond for custom cocktails crafted by talented bartenders.
