Bungalow Heaven is Pasadena's first Landmark District and a recent addition to the National Register of Historical Places. Each spring, the neighborhood association offers a walking tour of eight or ten homes in the area. The program and hosts explain architectural features and tell the story of each house on the tour.
The spring tour's a really neat way to experience Arts & Crafts-period bungalows in person and get ideas for your own home, while learning more about California history. New in 2009 they will offer a Living History Home with costumed performers showing a family and their activities of the 1900s-1930s. It's a great family activity, although allow for inclement weather. Give yourself at least three hours to visit all the homes.
Bungalow Heaven is located north of the 210 (Foothill) Freeway in the heart of residential Pasadena between the Lake and Hill exits.
Prices are generally around twenty bucks. Advance tickets are available as well as day of event. For exact prices and info, see their website at http://www.bungalowheaven.org/
