Pasadena is a city in Texas. With a population of around 149,043, it is the 2nd-biggest city in Harris County. It lies within the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area and is notable for having the biggest volunteer fire department within the country.

Initially settled by the Karankawa and Atakapan peoples, particularly the Akokisa, Pasadena was discovered by Europeans and settled during 1893. John H. Burnett founded the community and named it after Pasadena, California because of its green and lush plant growth. The Spanish people were early explorers of the region and charted the bay. The pirate Jean Lafitte dominated the region during the early part of the 19th century until the United States Navy forced him out in 1821. Lafitte and his crew had hide-outs all over Clear Lake and the bay.

Petrochemicals are the foundation of the city's economy. Petroleum refining and petrochemical processing are essential industries. The Pasadena Refining System has its headquarters in the City of Pasadena. Aerospace, health care ad shipping are strong industries. Pasadena benefits from its nearness to the Bayport shipping terminal and the Houston Ship Channel. The Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's center for space training, located within nearby Clear Lake.

Tourists could learn about the history of the area at the Armand Bayou Nature Center, the Pasadena Historical Museum and the Bay Area Museum. Pasadena has a thriving arts community such as the Pasadena Philharmonic and theater companies. A rodeo is held there annually. The Pasadena Citizen is the city's main newspaper.

With many refineries in the area, Pasadena has been dubbed "Stinkadena." One more nickname is "Pasa-get-down-dena"; in fact, there are quite a lot of country songs with that as their title.

A while ago, the city of Pasadena was known as the Strawberry Capital of the World. The start of strawberry growing in Pasadena started after a destructive flood, when the American Red Cross shipped over one million strawberry plants into the city. The strawberry crops grew abundantly and growers shipped dozens of train carloads of strawberries each and every day during the height of the season. The Pasadena Strawberry Festival attracts over 50,000 visitors every year to celebrate the historic importance of the crop. A central road within the City of Pasadena is named Strawberry Road, because it cuts through the former strawberry fields.
