Stopped at the United States Post Office to purchase post card stamps. What a beautiful interior. Ate and shopped at Paseo Colorado. Walked around the City Hall complex and purchased gourmet cupcakes from MarySue at the small farmer's market.

I recently strolled along Colorado Blvd with a friend of mine. It had been awhile since I had done this and I’m glad we did. There are some new shops and restaurants that I didn’t know about and it was fun to discover them. Plus I found a shoe sale at Kenneth Cole that was fantastic.

This is the retail destination in Pasadena. There are many chain stores (Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, etc.) but there are a few local businesses as well. The setting is lovely, so it makes for a nice afternoon.

Old Town Pasadena along Colorado Boulevard is a great place to people watch, eat and stroll. With loads of convenient parking, movie theaters, mid-range to elegant shops, and every type of restaurant imaginable, there is something for everyone. So, there's no need at all to drive all the way to Santa Monica for a similar, if slightly grungier experience, if... More

How do you rate a street or boulevard?? Well, I am not sure but here goes...Colorado Boulevard, is probably the most "traveled" street in Pasadena. For both residents and visitors, there are a wide variety of stores/shops, offered services, and the restaurants and eateries abound. Can you think of something that you want? It's somewhere on Colorado..movie theaters, spas, bridal... More

There is a lot to see and do on this street. You'll love how this place wakes up after dark. I really enjoyed window shopping and watching all the street artist.

Pretty nice to walk, highly recommend walking it barefoot in the dead of night, like 3am; there are homeless people so the whole atmosphere changes. Daytime, sunlight walking is excellent too, there's a couple good bookstores, desert stores, pastry shops, resturants galore.

The East end of Colorado has the Norton Simon Museum and Old Town Pasadena; near Lake avenue you will find the Playhouse District,with live theatre and a great movie house. East Pasadena gets spotty and sometimes is just a street. There is a cluster of antique/collectable shops near Altadena Drive. If you keep going you will pass Santa Anita racetrack... More
