The "Old Pasadena" stretch of Colorado Blvd has all the usual shops, etc., but if you go a block south to tree-lined Green St., it's a bit more interesting, mellower, and to see an amazing piece of architecture go to the post office bldg on Colorado Blvd. a couple blocks east of the Old Pas "strip" (across from the Paseo mall), and the amazing Pasadena Library north from there - via the beautiful City Hall and plaza.

Really, just driving or walking around residential neighborhoods in Pasadena is great, such a nice variety of architecture and trees Yes, I live in Pasadena!

Fine restoration of former grungy, run-down section of town. Now filled with many shops, mostly chains unfortunately. Alas, independent "character" shops are few and far. Many good places to eat, parking structures spotted around the area. Very popular area for locals and tourists alike.
Don't miss "glass" sculptures in One Colorado.

Colorado Blvd is lined with nice shops ranging from the unique to the tried and true. Restaurants are interspersed throughout making this a very nice area in which to spend the afternoon.
