There are lots of shops there if you like shopping. It has a nice small town atmosphere. It is close to other things.

The area has many neat small specialty stores. Lots of free parking. Located right on the edge of Manitou Springs. Also has several places to dine.

A really nice side trip (a bit of a walk up the in to the shrine itself) but really well done and good for those interested in Hollywood history meets Western Pioneer (Will Rodgers and Penrose)

Liked all the old buildings could imagine the cowboys riding up the street, lots of souvenir shops and going in the British goods store was quite strange as it seemed like home from home, but very costly, and with free parking what more do you need.

You can spend all day wandering in and out of the local shops or enjoying time at a cafe. There is a wonderful farmers market Saturday mornings in the park with lots of wonderful flavors of Colorado.

We went after dinner and parked the car and strolled the streets. In the main park area, there was a concert happening which was being enjoyed by many. Most of the shops were closed but it was fun to stroll the street and enjoy the free concert.

Spent every evening of our visit to Colorado Springs strolling and shopping in Old Colorado City. It is a charming area with lots of nice shops and restaurants.

Best thing about the District was the free parking compared to having to pay for parking at Manitou Springs. The district is about 5 blocks long and consists of similar type establishments (restaurants, preppy bars, specialty stores, etc.) as the Springs. Nice shaded benches along the street where I could sit while my wife checked out the stores.
