Old Colorado City is the quaint neighborhood you?ve been looking for. Once its own city but now a historic neighborhood in Colorado Springs, this darling commercial district is on the National Register of Historic Places. Think perfect filming location for a Hallmark Christmas movie!

The Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859 birthed this area, as it did many at that time, with storefronts that make you smile and the perfect area to stroll hand in hand. Two square miles are full of history, like the old courthouse and the stonework city hall.

Those who love to walk, shop, eat and mingle will adore this area, which has been heavily revitalized without sacrificing any of its charms. (They even used paint colors from the era of the city?s founding!) And of course, all the outdoor adventures one could hope for surround the area. You could say it?s the best of both worlds.

Trails like the Cherokee, the Jimmy Camp, and the Goodnight-Loving all converged in Old Colorado City, making it a high-traffic area in its history. Today, the general bounds are U.S. Highway 24 to the south, 32nd Street to the west, 13th Street to the east, and Uintah Street to the north, with the town square located at Bancroft Park.

Snuggle into a historic home or find something more modern. The options run the gamut. Either way, you?ll love living in this picturesque part of Colorado, the mountains framing your view and the history whispering from the past.
