Owner description: The site of the Rose Parade in Pasadena.
Reviewed 14 September 2017

Colorado Blvd, competes head to head with Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. This is the site of the Tournament of Roses which occurs every year, but more importantly you can find a lot of activities for your family and friends on daily basis. Restaurants, bars, entertainment and shops.
There are numerous private and civic parking structures around the Old Town Pasadena, you can easily walk from those spaces to Colorado Blvd. If you are lucky you may find street parking along Colorado and adjacent streets. The buildings are mostly historic (brick) and well maintained, the architecture is incredible and gives you a sense that you have gone back in time (early 1920s and 1930).
The beginning of Colorado Blvd starts with Norton Simon Museum and goes on for miles full of surprises. Get your walking shoes and visit soon, and yes the entire strip is pet friendly.

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.
