Old Colorado City Historic District offers over 100 shops, dining spots, and attractions hidden behind brick facades.

Spend some time at the local wine bars, art cafes, and live entertainment pubs, or shop for antiques, clothes, and jewelry. You can also browse through collections of fine art and pottery designed by local artists. Among the activities here, you can take up horseback riding, taste British treats and teas, and visit reportedly haunted places.
