About the tour

Bungalow Heaven is a quiet, shaded, tree-lined neighborhood of historic early 20th Century bungalow homes, many built during the Arts & Crafts. This Landmark District, in Pasadena, CA, was established in 1989 to preserve the architectural and historical significance of these beautiful homes. Bungalow Heaven has also been listed in the National Register of Historic Places and designated as one of the “10 great places in America” by the APA. The homes were built in the Craftsman and English Revival-style architecture from 1900 to about 1925. Both styles reflect a movement away from ornate preferences to houses designed in harmony with nature. We will wander down the Oak and Jacaranda tree-lined streets, marveling at the architectural details of this unique style and period, and talk about life in the greater Los Angeles area when the population doubled almost overnight.

Meet your local guide


Linda was born and raised in Southern California and loves to share its many adventures with others. Having traveled North America extensively as a professional musical theater actress, her favorite pastime is getting outside and “walking and gawking;” meeting new people, trying new foods, learning about different cultures. Especially in the car-centric city of Los Angeles, taking a walk gives you a different perspective of this complex and historically fascinating town. LA, and its surrounding areas, is a quilt of international neighborhoods that Linda can’t wait to share with you!

I really enjoyed the tour/tease about one of our beautiful communities in southern California. Just makes me want to go and do it myself. Really good background, knowledge of historical homes, architecture and the landscaping. Well worth it.
