Old Colorado City is a quaint area of Colorado Springs nestled close to the foothills of the Colorado front range near Garden of the gods and Manitou Springs. Many homes here were built in the early days of Colorado Springs (late 1800s to early 1900s) and give the town a beautiful old fashioned look and feel. There are many different businesses along the historic drive down Colorado Blvd. Specialty shops, antique shops, boutiques, art galleries, and many restaurants. It is truly a window shopping experience from the past. Quaint architecture in size and looks.
