My family hails from South Pasadena and you find that everything in Pasadena is on Colorado Blvd. or Fair Oaks. Starting in downtown pasadena you will see stores,shops, service business and everthig in between. It is part of the original Route 66 fromt he goden age of the automobile and if you drive far enough, you will see it all.

Lots of fine places to eat, and you'll get a sense of the architectural heritage of this great California city. Lots to take in form the chic city center to the outlying areas with dollar stores and tattoo parlours. Take as much time as you need; it's all fascinating.

Colorado Blvd. is just a looong street. It has virtually everything you need. Shopping, dining and utilities. The architecture though interesting. There are lots of buildings that should be given a second more thorough look. The people going up and the down Colorado Blvd. do not have the harried, stressed out feel. Colorado Blvd. is also quite clean.

This is a very long street, commencing up by Orange Grove Boulevard and going east for many miles. It is not a particularly beautiful street although it does pass through Old Pasadena. For me the main highlight is Vroman's Bookstore near Lake Avenue. This is one of the few independent bookstores remaining in the greater Los Angeles area. You pay full freight there and discounts are infrequent. However it is great place to browse, there is a nice coffee shop, and they have a great selection of books
