A Walk Down Colorado Boulevard.

Colorado Boulevard always reminds me of The Rose Parade. It is so cool to see things that we have seen watching the Parade on TV. There is also great shoppng.

Colorado Blvd is a great shopping and meeting area in Pasadena. Many of the typical stores are there - Banana Republic etc . . but there are many unique boutiques and restaurants on the Blvd. and adjacent that are worthwhile.

I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get around Pasadena, the public transportation will take you just about anywhere you want to go. I caught the Metro-link from Rancho Cucamonga to LA and then caught the bus to my hotel on Colorado Blvd. We stopped at resale shops, Walgreens to pick up snacks and just took in the... More

What an amazing street! Colorado Boulevard has it all: trendy shops, trendy food, trendy people. This street is amazingly long and has an amazing history! Architecture runs the entire spectrum of design.

There are some chains here but also some quirky shops too. Many dining options for every price range. Even in the evening with kooky characters out, one feels safe.

A vibrant boulevard. World known brand names, restaurants, cafes are all around. Also some of the buildings reflect their beautiful neo-classic and art-deco architecture from decades ago. Many of them nicely renovated.

Colorado Blvd in Pasadena is a nice area to shop, have lunch, have dinner, have drinks. It stretches thru most of the city, but is nicest between Orange Grove to the west, and Los Robles to the east....with most of this stretch being in Old Town. There are a ton of up scale shops as well as very reasonable establishments... More

We wanted to shop at Urban Outfitters at 8:40 pm, they were already closed, but the door said the store was not closed until 9 pm. So much for customer service. The H and M and Forever 21 kept the doors open until 9, then shut them while customers were still inside. Don't waste your time going to urban outfitters,... More
