“Place 2 Be Seen in SG Valley”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

CO Blvd is like Sunset Blvd, but CO hosts the Rose Parade each year.
Many fine shops, dining, OK parking, hard on streetside & many valet parking services for dining.
Unique, eclectic atmosphere
Check out Paseo CO Mall center & Arclight Cineama center.
Pay parking in Paseo CO Mall.

“Food and Shopping Mecca”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

TONS of shopping and dining in the Pasadena and Old Town Pasadena area. Regardless of what your food tastes are, the Colorado Boulevard area and Old Town area has it ALL.

“LOVE THIS STREET”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

When you say Pasadena you automatically think of COLORADO BLVD and the ROSE BOWL :) I have been to the Rose Bowl several times and have sat on this street on very cold mornings waiting for the Parade. However, this trip there was no Rose Bowl and it was very interesting to wlk down the BLVD and actually have space to shop and visit all of the shops without the crowds. It is very interesting and much better when there are not millions of people. This trip I got to see the REAL day to day stores and operations of COLORADO BLVD and have to say it is better when there is not a tourist event going on. Shoppes and the BLVD is well kept and well worth a visit to see what you can find

“Great place~”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Colorado Blvd. is a great place for dining, shopping, etc. It is always filled with people so you always feel safe. The choice of restaurants is just awesome - lots of cafes/bistros or restaurants with fine dining. It contains lots of shops and upscale stores - all within a 4 block. There is something there for every pocketbook whether shopping or dining - you will not be disappointmend and not a touristy type area at all which is great change from LA.
