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.

My hotel had a shuttle that would run you down to Old Pasadena. I took advantage of this when I had some time to kill before my flight left. No matter what you are into there is something for you. Every type of store and restuarunt is available. Its a great place to kill some time and just shop.

“Food and ambiance”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The most difficult thing about Old Pasadena (Old Pas to locals) is settling on a "best" restaurant. We loved to eat at Elements before an evening at the Pasadena Playhouse. But alas, Elements recently closed. Not to worry, though, there are dozens of others to choose from.

“Old Pasadena”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nice conglomeration of bars and restaurants. You can walk there after the Rose Bowl Game. If fact it's faster to walk there than drive in the post-game traffic.

“A TRIP BACK IN TIME”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Everytime I go back to Old Pasadena I'm reminded of the beauty and simplicity of that time. I always find good food, lot's of things to bring back as treasures, and the folks are friendly. Don't miss this.
