Lots of fun little shops and art galleries with an old mountain town sort of feel to the area. Quite a few places to eat, we checked out TAPAteria for dinner. Definitely recommend checking this area out if you want a more unique atmosphere.

We walked up and down the historic street just to relax after driving for 5 hours. It was a Friday night so there was an art walk going on and a lot of the shops were still open. Saturday morning there is a nice farmers market in the park which we also enjoyed.

Old Colorado City has very nice shops. We did not eat but looked like nice eating restaurants too. Doesn't take long to walk up and down each side.

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.

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.
