This is a wonderful old-time town where there is something for everyone. Great unique restaurants abound as are pubs. My wife knits and loves the yarn shops in the town.

Because it was winter a few of the displays weren't open but we have come to expect and accept that. The park was lovely and we did discover some eccentric little shops.

The scenery is amazing, the small businesses, the people, the amazing history, you could come to old Colorado city nearly every day for a year, and still find something new at the end of that year.

Fun shops, quaint eateries, historic area. We locals enjoy heading to the area for a stroll or special day out, and its a regular spot to take visitors to the area. Great feel for the historical roots of Colorado Springs.

This is an often overlooked part of COS that really should receive more attention. There are many unique shops, from art to western statuary, garden stuff, kitchen ware, etc. Definitely worth an afternoon or two of browsing if you have the time.

Walk the streets of Old Colorado City to see some neat store fronts. The cute old Post office is worth a picture. The street is full of Colorado shops, clothing and trinkets. There are a few restaurants and coffee shops as well.
