Revitalized in the 1990s, this area blends restored 19th-century brick buildings with a contemporary overlay. A phalanx of chain stores has muscled in, but there are still some homegrown shops, plenty of tempting cafés and restaurants, and a vibrant craft beer scene. In the evening and on weekends, the streets are packed with people. The 22-block historic district is anchored along Colorado Boulevard between Pasadena Avenue and Arroyo Parkway.
