Colorado Boulevard

Colorado Boulevard is part of the historic Old Town Pasadena district in Los Angeles, located minutes away from downtown. Colorado Boulevard is best known as the street that hosts a large part of the annual Rose Parade. The four-block stretch of Colorado Boulevard between Pasadena Avenue and Arroyo Parkway has become the main focal point of Old Pasadena attracting large numbers of visitors every night to enjoy the area's entertainment, dining and shopping.

Patrons will find secluded walkways, plazas, and a collection of antique stores, bookstores, movie theaters, restaurants and night clubs. "One Colorado Boulevard" is a block-sized entertainment center found on the north side of the street featuring a plaza with interesting sculpture and outdoor dining.

Tanner Market is located at the southeastern corner of Colorado Boulevard and is mostly hidden from street view. However, the interior is a beautiful brick courtyard with fountains, wrought iron and flowers. It includes several boutiques and the Old Town Bakery.

Old Pasadena dates back to the 1870's and is a pedestrian neighborhood, where people can leisurely stroll in a relaxed urban setting. Many of the original buildings have been restored and the entire area is included in the National Register of Historic Places.
