Just a bunch of shops, many over priced but the buildings are great. If you want to just buy stuff then I would say this is the area to just wander around and spend money.

Lots of choices to eat but get pizza across the street from the hemp store, of course the hemp store is interesting also.

This historical district offers arts, crafts, clothing and souvenirs of all kinds. There are many local, varied restaurants. Our recent visit was to Paravicini's Italian restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious meal and celebrated a birthday. We then experienced the monthly Friday evening ArtWalk and visited a number of different galleries. We plan to go again!

Old Colorado City has an old time atmosphere with lots of specialized restaurants. A summertime farmers market is held in the town park on Saturday mornings and has a wide variety of local produce, cheeses, meats and other food products.

We were very disappointed with this area of Colorado Springs, we felt it was a bit run down. However the Antique shop was good with a lovely friendly lady who owns this interesting shop. Also we liked the the English shop, with another nice lady owner.

We like Old Colorado City better than Manitou Springs. It's more compact and we think the shops and galleries are more interesting.

Its hard to believe Old Colorado City isn't the heart of the downtown area because its a nice place for tourists to get a feel of Colorado Springs. Lots of shopping and restaurants with a wonderful view of Pikes Peak. Holidays are cheerfully celebrated with lots of decorations especially at Christmas where there are horse drawn carriage rides down Colorado... More
