Free parking, lots of boutiques, antiques, food, bars, etc. Clean and lovely area for tourists and locals, and great farmers market in summer and fall.

I live in this area of town so my view is biased but I love supporting local businesses and where else can you do that AND be in an historic district with FREE parking? This little community has great shops, great eats and great people. Plan on walking around and enjoying the many shops.

Old Colorado City is a quaint area to browse shops and sample good food. Quirky populace makes 'people watching' a great pasttime as you enjoy some ice cream or Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory chocolates!

"Old City" as it was described to me is just around the corner, so I drove over to check it out. Sunday evening and many things were closed, but I see and feel the quaint charm of it.

This historic part of Colorado Springs is on the way up to Manitou Springs (a real tourist trap, but fun) and Pike's Peak. It has some good restaurants and shopping. Overall the prices are reasonable and you can find some real shopping bargains. They're fixing it up, and every time we return it's a little nicer.

The many shops and eateries in this old town section offer lots to see and do-strolling carolers in winter and patio restaurants in summer, wine tours, Territory Days, summer Farmer's Market and more. Pizzeria Rustica is a must-eat place for authentic, thin-crust pizza direct from Italy. There's a tile/terracotta shop on the west end that has tons of pots and... More

I love shopping and eating here in the summers when it is warm. SO pretty and yet small and cozy. One of the best places to visit in the springs!

We spent a weekend a few blocks away. What a quaint and delightful area. We ate at a delicious Mexican restaurant and shopped in some really cute stores. Very difficult to find street parking open. I suggest just taking your time shopping and stepping into one of the many restaurants. Among all this, there is a FANTASTIC, intimate, little venue... More

You'll spend all day window shopping. Great bars and restaurants too. Everything from a French bakery to a cowboy bar.

This is a fun place to stroll around in the fresh air on a lazy weekend going in and out of shops strolling around taking pictures, snacking, and just being outdoors and shopping. Highly recommended!
