Owner description: 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.

Lots of nice restaurants with many options for all kinds of cuisine. Sushi Roku and Il Fornaio are a few options at One Colorado. Grandview Gardens and Osawa Japanese restaurant on Raymond. Kings Gastro pub and Mi piace on Colorado. Yes, chain stores but also lots of smaller ones and the best local Travel store around.

Lots of different cuisine and restaurants to choose from. But be prepared to pay for tourist prices.

Everything is very conveniently located, and shops open till 9-10pm, which is unusual?

There was a huge forever 21 and everything was 50-70% off !

You've been here before in many parts of the country. If you are looking for chain store shopping, this is the place. Nonetheless, it's a clean city with lots of parking lots and tons of places to eat.

Quaint downtown of one of the countries first planned cities. Great selection of shops and some very good restaurants. Reasonable parking for California!

It is a great outing for all. Whether you desire world class museums, restaurants, theater or shopping or a simple passagata to stroll the “neighborhood” come you won’t be disappointed. Dress up, have a drink, get out and enjoy during the holiday season.
