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.

We walked down Colorado ave in old Pasadena. It has some nice architectural charm. Unfortunately all the stores were national chains. Not that much to see or do.

We enjoyed this very walkable area. There are a ton of specialty stores and restaurants built nicely into the old buildings. Definitely worth a stroll. We easily spent a whole morning here. Lots to take in.
