Lots of interesting shops and eateries on this boulevard. Nice wide sidewalks, in well kept condition and importantly clean. Good place to start your discovery of Pasadena.

This street has everything on it. Some of the npbest shopping and eating establishments only steps away. You can easily spend a couple of days on this street and not hit all of the eclectic shops and restaurants.

Thus is a place of interest and history. It is old Route 66. Architecture is good, quality of shops is good. It has a Spanish feel about it.

I am reminded of the song "Little Old Lady from Pasadena" from the 60s as I walk or drive down Colorado Boulevard. It can be quite crowded but the selection of stores is quite good and the people are very friendly.

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.
