"Wonderful shopping and dining"
West Colorado is the heart of Pasadena, and has EXCELLENT shopping and dining. The overall vibe is very welcoming and tourist-friendly much like the rest of the city. Small details, such as the cross-intersection crosswalks, make it clear that the city has made an effort to tend to the needs of tourists and pedestrians. Highlights on West Colorado include H&M, a Swedish retail chain for men and women, and The Melting Pot, a "gourmet fondue" restaurant, as well as numerous small shops and restaurants. Overall, a wonderful place to visit.
