My family of 10 adults rented a 5 bedroom house in the area and had a great time! We could walk to shops, restaurants and bars. Also a very short drive to Garden of the Gods and Manitou Springs. A great place to visit, can’t...More

Lots of neat stores, great restaurants, and I love the architecture. What I can do without is the constant solicitation from panhandlers. Not as bad as New Orleans.....but it is getting close.

Some things we liked (cute, local businesses and eateries, beautiful old trees and buildings, something different and more interesting than a mall). Some things not so much (lots of marijuana smoking, trash, and traffic). We did like the cheese shop and the bee products shop....More

I grew up in the quintessential small historic downtown and I've missed those ever since I moved to Salt Lake City three years ago. Park City is the closest I've come to a cute small town. The buildings are being kept up really well and...More

Visited here on a Sunday morning, probably not the best day as many of the shops were shut. However, it was nice to see the Old town and read the many boards that had interesting facts about the area. Lots of free parking

Fun place to spend an hour but nothing great. Looked like several cute restaurants but did not visit. Many of the stores stock a lot of junk.

I always enjoy driving through the established town's that respect the times past. It's always odd how you can pass them by off the main roads, don't be in a hurry.

Yes it is ... especially during the Summer months, the longer, cooler evenings provide a very pleasant setting for a evening browse and dinner.

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
