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.

We spent the afternood walking around Old Colorado City. It's a fun area with lots of shops and plenty of great restaurants, like Jake and Telly's and Paravicini's. If you're in the area and looking for something to do, this could be it!

"Historic downtown" is basically a strip of speciality stores and bars/restaurants. It has a completely different feel to the suburban norm of Colorado Springs.

Hi! They both have shopping options. Downtown Colorado Springs is a lot larger and you have more options. We liked Old Colorado City because it was smaller, we found great places to eat, easy parking and we found very quaint... More
