This is an historical stretch of the Colorado Springs area that has gone through changes over the years, but retains its 19th century allure. Shopping is varied ranging from upscale art to trendy tourist trinkets. You can find that vacation T-shirt, or something a little more memorable. There are various eateries tucked in with the stores along the main section... More

The buildings in this area have been the same for at least a century. They provide a variety of shopping experiences: from Old Colorado City Creamery (great ice cream), to the Old Colorado City Library, to Bernideen's (a woman's paradise for shopping), and many other attractive shops. The area is easily walkable. Of course the time taken varies upon the... More

architecture, art influence from unknown artists, friendly walking conditions for browsing...Regarding dislikes, tentatively as in all societies their is coterie of low income abodes that need to be addressed...but then go to Paris or San Francisco, same idea. Better than living in a gated community, tho'.......

This is a nice historic place. The stores are pretty unique that offers items that you would not see in most other places but there only. I enjoyed the diorama store with the amazing talent of Michael Garman. I also enjoyed just walking through the different stores. The old city is significant of its history about the gold rush.I would... More

Old Colorado Springs Downtown area was a fun place to visit, with many choices of restaurants. If you are in Colorado Springs to tour the Air Force Academy, Pike's Peak, and Garden of the Gods, don't miss heading to this historic section of the city!

Cool historic area with cute shops, but no people and could use more restraunts. We went around 7pm and the shops were closed and no place to eat.

I spent a few days here roaming around through local restaurants and locally owned shops. There are many great places to stop at and enjoy. Not much on nightlife but it's a classy, cultured place!

We began our day here, on the way to Manitou Springs to shop, but we spent the vast part of the day here. The shops are way more diverse, less touristy, and more unique than in Manitou! We read the history of the town on a placard in the park, and enjoyed several great shops -- from the honey shop,... More

We enjoyed walking around the few block full of interesting shops, quaint restaurants and charming buildings. We spent half a day strolling around and would go back again. A very clean area.
