Owner description: Old Pasadena is the downtown historic business district of Pasadena, a lively and diverse city located just ten miles from downtown Los Angeles. This eclectic old town area features entertainment and activities for kids and adults alike: museums, galleries, and music events, as well as movies, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor cafes. Families often stop by after sports events at the Rose Bowl; this clean and safe district is pedestrian friendly and provides convenient parking and easy access to public transportation, served by major bus lines and two Metro Gold Line stops.

“Great visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Came to Pasadena for a quick birthday get away. Old Pasadena was a great part of our trip. We enjoyed walking around the shops and restaurants both during the day time and at night. Great selection and variety of restaurants. Loved the stores that are there to choose from.

“Over crowded & over hyped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Busy streets, unruly drivers, not a place to drive. If you walk its OK, but watch out for the cars whose drivers think they own the road & sidewalks. In 15 minutes I watched several cars run red light including a Metro bus?

“High class or low class”

There are bars and resturants for all tastes and expenses. We loved a sports bar called Barney's Beanery. There are so many restaurants to choose from that you will find something you like.

“Brand names all along the street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

One whole stretch of shopping of big brand names like J.Crew, Gap, etc, and a whole lot more of other smaller shops around the alley to explore and dig for treasures.
