Fun area to spend the afternoon. Great restaurants and shops all in a nice few blocks of walking. Park in the central area with live bands and events on the weekends. First Friday art trail every month. Saturday morning farmers markets and art traders. All seasonal so see the colorado website for details. Similar to Manitou Springs area.

Old Colorado City is a great place for small shops and fair prices. I went there prior to Christmas to try to find my wife something unusual s a gift. I'm glad I did - I hit the 'mother load'. I was able to find jewelry made by local artists, very different from even the high end stores at reasonable... More

This can be fun if you like to walk with friends and explore. Just keep in mind nothing here any tourist area in the US does not have except for maybe the mountain itself. Therefore I suggest you take the train ride up to the top of Pikes Peak. Only place in the country you can do that. If you... More

We decided to spend some extra time here while celebrating our daughters 12th birthday. She loved walking the street and going into all the shops. The first Rocky Mountain chocolate factory sign is in front of the original building.

I've been here a number of times and never tire of wandering through the shops and eating at one of the many places in this historic city. Take a stroll up the main drag, check out the many different shops and restaurants. I ate at a place that offered outside seating, although I don't recall the name now. Check it... More

I didn't do much walking since it was cold but it is a nice place to visit: few blocks of pretty buildings, probably 19th century, few restaurants and stores.

This is one of the nicest old town centers with everything close together. There are a variety of restaurants for every taste. The art and attendant markers provide for a rich history telling as you walk around. Several of them are great photo opportunities.
