We were very disappointed with this area of Colorado Springs, we felt it was a bit run down. However the Antique shop was good with a lovely friendly lady who owns this interesting shop. Also we liked the the English shop, with another nice lady owner.

We like Old Colorado City better than Manitou Springs. It's more compact and we think the shops and galleries are more interesting.

I wasn't impressed with this are of Colorado Springs. Maybe I expected more; but it seemed rather shabby. We spent about 20 minutes here.

Its hard to believe Old Colorado City isn't the heart of the downtown area because its a nice place for tourists to get a feel of Colorado Springs. Lots of shopping and restaurants with a wonderful view of Pikes Peak. Holidays are cheerfully celebrated with lots of decorations especially at Christmas where there are horse drawn carriage rides down Colorado... More

Great diversion. We walked the street and visited all the little shops. The people were friendly and helpful and did not pressure us. Be sure to try the fudge at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

The shops are really not worth the bother, lots of clothing stores and one small antique store. A very large Mexican shop w/pottery, very dusty, so I think the stuff has been there for awhile. All the usual touristy things along w/spas and restaurants.

We ate lunch at a hot dog/ice cream shop and sat outside. The food was good but expensive. Area is very void of eating places. Staff of two were very polite and helpful.

This area is charming. It is small but worth a visit. There are shops and restaurants, and it is not as touristy as Manitou Springs.

We started out our day at the Farmers Market-what a great selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, pastries, etc. Then we walked the town & shopped in some great art shops, clothing, jewelry, & other quaint stores. A nice afternoon of shopping. Parking is difficult.

I have an art studio in old Colorado City, across from the first building in what used to be Colorado's capitol city. Old Colorado City dates to the 1850s and has many 19th century structures. The shopping and restaurant district is small but vibrant, with numerous art galleries, boutiques, vintage and contemporary Navajo jewelry, coffee shops, wine bars, and restaurants.... More
