When I first moved to Los Angeles this was home to the homeless. Pasadena’s wealthy has moved their shops to Lake Avenue. Old Town had turned into empty buildings and old dove bars with tlme pawn shops and sex shops. Today it is THE place to be. Tiffany and so many others make it home. And walking at night eating and drinking and of course shopping is wht it is now.

Long street that goes right thru Old Pasadena. Loaded with nice stores and restaurants. It has a lot of national chain stores, and an upscale car dealer.

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.
