This is a great "Old Town" area of Colorado to explore - peek into the galleries, enjoy some good eats (we have enjoyed the tapas restaurant), do a little wine-tasting. Enjoy the Saturday farmer's market, and a good cappuccino. I even went into the old fire station (very historic with its tin ceilings) and thanked the firemen for their heroic... More

We made a quick stop here for dinner after a hike. The shops and restaurants are cute. A fun afternoon stop.

It's OK. Old town feel. It wards off the "strip mall" mania of the USA, but not too interesting. Manitou is a better spot.

A fun old district to walk around and enjoy all of the restaurants and the shops. Jake and Tellys is one of the best Greek restaurants anywhere and it is fun to enjoy many of the artistic events that close of the streets in the summer.

A sort of quaint little town pretty much taken over by touristy shops selling most things unrelated to Colorado and the area itself. Sure you'll find an abundance of t-shirts. ..whooping but what remains is the sort of things that have nothing to do with the native area, the Rockies or the locals wares. What does Tibetan objects have anything... More

We read a great review on a restaurant here and fell in love with this area. Ate at two different restaurants, both great, and enjoyed some wonderful chocolate.

Although we just drove through this area a couple of times, it reminded us of home and the antique row in Snohomish. Lots of little shops, eating places and things. Would like to have had more time to spend there.

Average tourist area with mix of restaurants and shops. Something for most everyone, I guess. Nothing fantastic.

For a good time, this area is not to be missed. Many shops and interesting spots to look at. And, places to eat. Makes for a fun day! We go there every so often and when guests come. (candy shop, honey shop, dog shop, cafes, mixed item shops, etc., etc.)

Cool old homes, bungalows - very nostalgic. Lots of little "cubby hole" shops for finding unique art and gifts. Big hippy hangout if that bothers you - I love it. Great, Great places to eat, dog friendly.
