It has plenty of unique shops and several great places to eat. Great place to head for breakfast, especially Muffs on Sunday morning. Parking is available but mostly paid, which is fine but you can only get ONE hr. on the meter and it takes longer than that to do much. Parking is free on Sundays.

Cool little downtown area with fun shops (husbands - beware...!). There is a website for Old Colorado City and a mobile app that details a walking tour of the old buildings and history of the town. The bright spot of this area, though, is the FOOD...! These are consistently rated the best restaurants in Colorado Springs, and I can honestly... More

This is basically a 6-8 block street collection of cool stores and eclectic restaurants. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and ambience. A nice afternoon for wandering.

Yes we enjoy a leisurely stroll up and down the streets of Old Colo. City. We also like the restaurants (Pizzeria Rustica & The Mason Jar among others).

The old district is pretty charming, there are some specialty shops, it is more the tiny cottages/housing and architecture that keeps you interested. Wondering if they could highlight age of some of those buildings for people to put it into perspective and admire the quality of how stuff use to be built to last.

We went late to a local restaurant but missed anything else going on because it was dead when we came out of the restaurant at 930pm on a Thursday. Historic district must be for daytime visitors only.
