“Fun Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Wow, there are so many shops and many different kinds of shops.
I think it is better to find a place to park and then spread out from there. Some places give you free parking for 90 minutes, then you have to pay after that.

“I like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Great atmosphere along Coloroado Blvd. On the West side, you come to Old Town which has great atmosphere on the weekend. If you like crowds, there will be lots of people around and you will find everything there, restaurants, coffee houses, books and all shopping. I go in that area often. Visit and enjoy!

“Walking up and down Colorado Blvd can keep you enjoyably occupied for a whole day or evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

This is one of those places you will remember for the wrest of your life. There are so many things to see in the way of different kinds of stores and restaurants that you could keep coming back again and again, and always find something different.

Generally, the weather is very pleasant in Pasadena. So walking up and down Pasadena Blvd is a very pleasant experience. There are many different restaurants also where you can eat and enjoy all of the people walking by.

The shopping center Paseo Colorado is also a great place to visit.

If you wonder the side streets, Union Ave one block north of Colorado, or Green Street one block south of Colorado, you will double the number of restaurants and shops you can explore.

I have been visiting Colorado Blvd for 25 years, and I always find something new to see.

I hope you get you visit the interesting place real soon.

“Fun to see the parade route”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Never having been to Pasadena we were curious. It is lovely with so much to see along Colorado Blvd. It was interesting to be there before the parade seeing the preparations. That is one long parade route. Now when we watch on TV we know what we are seeing.
