Old Colorado City is a great place to walk and shop. You can spend an hour or a day here going in all the different shops and markets. This is a wonderful side trip during your visit to Colorado Springs.

Relaxed small town with walkable streets, somewhat quirky (not tourist traps) shops and original dining options. Almost felt like a step back to a simpler time

This part of town is always fun for us because we have a few favorite shops or cafe's and just like the pleasant upbeat mood of being outside on a nice day - and many nice days grace us here in CO.

I love going here and spending the day. There are great little shops around and some good restaurants. It’s fun to take your time and walk around. Parking is a pain but it never stops me.

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!

We stopped here because we thought that it sounded interesting. We walked around and went to a few of the shops. It was fun to see all of the historic things that were out. It was quiet cold while we were there, so we didn't...More

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