I do love Manitou, but I hope Old Colorado City never fades away. There are some great places to eat and shop, and it is far less crowded than other areas. There is even a place to get a psychic reading!

Nice strip of stores, classic brick front, if you are in the area. Eat lunch nearby at Garden of the Gods cafe.

Hidden behind a busy highway offers up a small brisk walk of local businesses and old time outdoor sights. Not too many eye catching shops but a great place to support local businesses and walk the pets. See also Ybor City, Florida without the cigars.

Cute shops, restaurants, & a small park to see. It is in Old Colorado City, between downtown CoSpgs, & Manitou Springs. A worthwhile stop with some fun things to do. We go frequently.
