The warm days of summer have arrived, and that means Laura gets to spend fun-filled days outdoors! – Little House in the Big Woods
Staying close to home this Summer? If you find your way up to the Pasadena area, here’s a list of “Places Around Pasadena.”
Ok, we can’t start this list off without a mention our Front Porch Farm Stand (read all about it). If you never been, then you are missing out ! Our farm stand is a unique place. You can pick up homegrown produce, homestead and gardening supplies, get expert advice for starting your city homestead or just sit and relax in our front garden sitting area (especially on Sunday).
Consider making a day trip to Pasadena ? Less than 5 minutes from our homestead, you can visit the Pasadena Museum of History, Colorado Street Bridge, Norton Simon Museum, Gamble House, Frank Lloyd Wright Millard House, Kidspace, Brookside Park, Lower & Upper Arroyo Seco.
Pasadena is full of beautiful parks, historic architecture, lovely gardens ( Huntington Gardens), wonderful libraries and so much more. Last, but not least, if you are a trail buff like we are, you can roam the majestic San Gabriel Mountains and meander for miles on easy to access trails (which were a favorite of the naturalist John Muir)
Hey, local yokels, did I miss something? Feel free to add to the list.
Back in the days, folks (especially farming folks) didn’t have the time or luxury to take “time off” and head off to a “far away” destination. Instead, they found or made up fun things to do around their farm or town. Visits to the ‘ol swimming hole, picnics in the park, music on the front porch … ahhh, sounds like an ideal summer to me!
What about you? How do you like to spend summer?
