Pasadena Old Town-Power Walk Through Historic Old Town
I maintain that one of the fastest, healthiest and least expensive ways to get to know your neighborhood is to Power Walk It!
Today, the streets are wide and filled with awesome shopping opportunity and modern day parking meters that take credit cards.
It’s hard to imagine that the Facades of the buildings use to be mainly Victorian and and the streets were much narrower in the 1920’s before the city petition have the street paved, widened and all the buildings were set back 14 feet on both sides of Colorado Blvd. Now most of the building facades are Spanish Colonial Revival and Art Deco facades.
Don’t be afraid to walk or jog through the Alleys of Pasadena Old Town because that’s were you will see a lot of the original construction and even a couple original Villas tucken in the alley were service people use to live back with Pasadena Old Town was as Resort Town in the 1880’s
