This area has so many fun shops and good restaurants you'll want to spend more than a day wandering. Start early enjoy coffee and breakfast and continue through the day.

We didn't have time to stop and walk around, but drove through several times- we thought the area was 'cute" . It looked clean and artsy, we loved the artwork and sculptures . We spotted several little shops we would have like to have stopped at, but didn't have the time. next trip through, we'll be stopping.

A pleasant place to shop and catch a bite to eat. Will be popular with European visitors. Be sure to try Bella's bakery and bistro on east Bijou st - excellent authentic food and welcome.

We spent a short time here on Saturday morning and it was a beautiful area of town. The traffic and parking were a slight problem due to the fact that it was Saturday and they were having their outdoor markets, etc. Beautiful park area and wonderful little shops.

Good place for souvenirs, but too many homeless people begging. Friendly shop keepers, not enough places to sit and cool off. Not enough bathrooms, only portable stinky toilets

As much as we tried to value this area we found it to be tired and lacking in real interest. We followed a tourist map of points of interest but it really was tedious.

Great old town with great shops and food. Still has the old town flavor nestled up against the mountains. Nice afternoon stop.

Always enjoy walking through Old Colorado City. Recommend Meadow Muffins for lunch (get the Buffalo Wings) or to just grab a beer. Across the street is Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Tons of touristy stores to shop in as well.

This was my first stop in Colorado Springs and we were not too impressed. There really were not many stores and the atmosphere was not what I expected. Had a much better time an Manitou Springs
