Very busy part of the city with lots of quaint shops with interesting items to purchase as well as some interesting people to behold. Check out the Carnegie Library if you are in the area during the daytime. Good luck with parking in the late afternoon/evening as it is a lively place!

We enjoyed strolling the tree-lined streets, looking at 19th century architecture, and checking out some of the shops. Easy to park for free! And the Bon Ton Cafe is a great place for lunch. There is even creative wall art.

Over priced tourist shops mostly. Seen several eateries but did not eat while we were there. A few nice restaurants as well as bar/grill type eateries. Parking is very limited especially on weekends.

Old Colorado City Historic District is about a 2.5 miles from Colorado Springs. I walked there as I did not have a car. The section in between is pretty run down with a number of tattoo parlors and bars. Once you get to the historic district the first thing you notice are the homeless. They seem to have taken over...

I don't remember the name of the restaurant, but it was like a house with each room painted a different color. It was on the corner of the street, across from the park. I had their specialty, a Cuban sandwich and it was amazing. We sat outside to eat in their very pleasant patio area.

This district is fun to spend some time in after hiking Garden of The Gods or exploring Manitou Springs. Sometimes the parking is a little hard to get and there are meters. The shops there are not typical although there are all kinds of inexpensive souvenir shops mixed with galleries. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has great candy. La Baguette... More

This is a good area to take a stroll and do a little shopping or grab a bite to eat. Parking is metered, so bring change.

This is a quaint little city with a lot of character. We shopped at many of the shops, finding tie-dyed clothing, lots of art and many food choices, too. We stopped at the corner for wine tasting and a fruit and cheese plate before heading down the road.
