Come for a treat on a Friday or Saturday night

This has become a "Happening Area" on Friday and Saturday nights for young people. Lots of restaurants and ice cream shops are open and people are walking and talking everywhere!

I came here after work to hangout. I suggest you park in a garage if you are thinking about being there for more than 2 hours--it's not worth getting a ticket over and garages can be as cheap as 5 dollars. Once there walk. Explore the alleys there will be restaurants, coffee shops, or pubs!!! Once the sun sets head... More

Travelers, and residents of Pasadena, all walk the boulevard. Shops galore, and each one is unique in what it offers. Streets are maintained, and policed, never have had an issue of trash, and debris on the street. Parking as always; is a nightmare, but way too many cars on the road already.

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.
