Our first visit to Colorado Boulevard was for a car show on a Sunday afternoon. It was so fun, lots of families out and about. The sidewalks are big and most of the restaurants have patios and are dog friendly. It's such a great little area. Definitely worth a visit!

Colorado boulevard where I stayed had no place to go to eat if you didn't have a car. The only place was Target about 3 blocks away. Had to get a car, and Enterprise was closed, but Thrifty came to the rescue

If you're looking for something interesting to do and don't mind the several pandhandlers along the sidewalk, take a stroll along Old Town's Colorado Blvd. Especially if you like to window shop or are looking for an interesting spot to dine. The CIty has several free-for-the-first-2-hours parking structures nearby to the south.

Live very near this garden and make it a point to walk here every once in a while. It is such a delightful place to walk around or sit on a bench and enjoy the sounds of the birds and the peaceful atmosphere.

A great way to spend an afternoon. Wander through the many shops, have a fabulous meal at the many restaurant options, see a movie or just sit and watch the world go by.

We stayed in Burbank - about 35 minutes to get into Pasadena and parked at 4:00am. Easy to get to Parade Route as all highway. Recommend buying parking pass and finding your seats the day before. Don't know if you attended yet but one company Sharp Seating has a monopoly on all seats. We attended Jan 2015. We purchased our... More
