While you are in Pasadena you will certainly visit Orange Grove Boulevard and you should also stop and view the beauty of the Wrigley Gardens on S. Orange Grove. Nice stop.

Great garden and interesting history. Yes, it was the gum guy, Wrigley. Check it out. It is small, so it is quick.

We saw the gardens during peak rose season and in spite of there being many healthy and floriferous rose bushes, it seemed very lackluster. The roses were healthy and well-grown but the garden seems almost sterile and unloved. Our favourite gardens are Huntington (Jan 2018...More

Small garden area with some sad looking roses. Granted it isn't summer but expected more as this is the rose bowl parade capital. Most roses weren't identified, some were. Next time would bring a book and sit and read. Lovely area with beautiful houses and...More

After visiting the Gamble House in Pasadena, the Wrigley Mansion was a great disappointment. Most of the original interior of the house has been gutted and the furniture removed/lost to make conference rooms and office space, and it is now used as headquarters for the...More

I pass by this Palace almost weekly. It is so refreshing to see a surviving example of Old Pasadena. Back when this was really Millionaires row. (In the days of the Robber Barons, from say 1850 to 1930. A Million Dollars was worth about 200...More

The Wrigley House is open only on Thursday afternoons. The gardens are just a short walk from the TOWN and still capture the aura of a stately garden surrounding a large home. A short stroll circumnavigates the mansion. Azaleas and other spring bloomers were beautiful....More

This lovely rose garden is just a short walk from Old Town, but it seems miles away. It was very peaceful on a Sunday morning and even in October, most of the roses were in bloom. If you want to get a bit of exercise,...More

Garden to Sky Hiking Trail (1 Reply)
We will be visiting Catalina Island in a few weeks for just a day. We are interested in hiking for a couple of hours (2-3). I've gotten interested in the Garden to Sky trail, but I'm finding surprisingly little information about the trail online, other than it begins at the Wrigley Gardens. I'd appreciate any information you might be able to provide, such as how long is the trail? How difficult? Is it a loop or an out-and-back? Is it worth the effort? Are there better trails for a 2-3 hour...More

Hi Dorsey, The Garden to Sky is a great hike! It's a not too strenuous loop. The best people to answer your question will be the folks at the Catalina Island Conservancy House, located on Clarissa Ave. They can provide you with a great island trail map, suggest the best hike for your needs, and issue hiking permits for the "interior" of the island- the 88% of undeveloped land in their trust that is home to a plethora of hiking trails with absolutely amazing vistas. You are in for a treat!

Two nights in Catalina Island or one? (11 Replies)
My wife and I are planning a visit early in November for 2 nights (Sunday, Monday). We will arrive on around 11 a.m. and leave at 4.30 p.m. We will definitely do the Conservancy Eco Tour. We are in our 50s. We would also like to visit the Wrigley Gardens. Any suggestions on things to see/do would be welcome. Is that too much time and should we cut it down to just one night?

Oh, I felt that there wasn't that much to do on the island and one night is enough time. If you arrive on Sunday morning and leave Monday afternoon, I think that's plenty.
