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.

This area of Pasadena has dozens of restaurants and bars. It is very pleasant to walk around and explore the different areas as well.

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

Easy to get to everything. Terrible clean up for the town. Wish they had a way of dealing with the after math of parade.

To view parade best to buy seats online in advance for one of the seats in the raised bleachers with sun at one's back. Was surprised to see locals who brought BBQ's, heaters, and ice chests (leaving their mess behind) and must have been camping out to 'save' their space. Also surprised at massive amount of Christian proselytizing on the... More

I love walking, shopping, eating near Colorado blvd Pasadena from Pasadena old town up to Rosemead Blavd. It has old charm, all the new shopping, cinemas, book shops, collages, near by auditorium, and adjacent nice neighborhood like San Marino, South Pasadena, Arcadia etc. Its the street that uses for Pasadena Rose parade.

This boulevard is the main one in Pasadena- lots of cafes, bars, restaurants and provides a nice space for walking all day long. Lovely!
