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.

It runs through Old Town Pasadena and you can find everything you want. There are many bars, restaurants (from several countries: Indian, Asian, Japanese, Mexican, American, Hawaian, Italian, etc); you can find several cupcake shops (Violet's, Dots, ConfeXion), fro-yo (21 Choices, Pinkberry, Jamba Juice, Mrs. Fields/TCBY), coffee (Starbucks, Intelligentsia, Tom N Toms), bakeries, boba drinks, crepes. Wonderful buildings, new and futuristic or old and characteristic. Homeless people, all the time, everywhere. Messages about society or politics, written by hand or printed. There are Macy's and Paseo. There even is a great shop for elementary school children. There are furniture and carpets shops. There is a wonderful library where you can find old books, used books, hard to find books. There are the major clothing specialty retailers (J Crew, Banana Republic, Gap, American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Cotton On, etc.), home retailers (Sur La Table, Container Store, Crate & Barrel, Williams Sonoma, Restoration Hardware), bookstores, candy store, Apple Store, bath/cosmetic stores (Sephora, Lush, Lather), antiques, etc, shops with good bargains and others that will break the bank. There are multiple movie theaters, a park (Memorial Park, haven for the homeless but also has outdoor concerts), nightclubs, comedy clubs, and museums (Norton Simon Museum, Pacific Asia Museum, California Museum).
