Our first Neighborhood Shout Out goes to Old Town Pasadena.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit this upscale L.A. town, then you’re definitely missing out on one of L.A.’s best hot spots. Located near the historic Arroyo Seco in the San Gabriel Valley, Old Town Pasadena is home to some of the most historical buildings and landmarks in Southern California. From the sports-friendly Rose Bowl to the ninety-eight year old Pasadena Play House, the City of Pasadena has a lot to choose from in terms of historical sites. Colorado boulevard, the center of the city’s commerce district, also features shops and restaurants fit for all tastes.
For the best Old Town experience be sure to stop by The Luggage Room for an oven baked pizza with a side of bacon wrapped figs, along with a cold brew from Stone Brewery Co., located just a few steps away. For dessert, enjoy an ice cream sandwich from the newly opened pop-up store, The Coolhaus Shop— we recommend getting the coffee Oreo ice cream sandwich. Not much of a sweet tooth? No worries.Travel east down the boulevard and grab a cup of coffee from near by Zona Rosa Caffe. Nothing goes better with a cup of fresh brew than good company and a stroll through sunny Old Town. Enjoy!
