It has been decades since I cruised this famous street through Pasadena. I found it nice but not as scenic nor special as I had remembered from the 70's. Maybe it was the cold (60's) midday grey weather in mid May (inland June Gloom?) or...More

Old town rocks-- when you walk east, it is a little more typical but tons of great restaurants, coffee shops-cafes....and also lots of good boutique stores....the more traditional chain stores are well east of the main part of Colorado(300 block).
