I walked this stretch yesterday from Allen to the Arroyo, and the tone switches from classy to dodgy and anything in-between from block to block. Nothing special but for New Year's Day.

We enjoyed the palm lined drive in some areas of long drive into La from the Monrovia area of San Gabriel mountain range. Loved all pic oops and eateries!

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).
