Old Colorado City was formerly the capital of Colorado back in territorial days. It retains historic remnants and charm of the past. Full of shops, restaurants, museums, and outdoor activities, Old Colorado City homes offer a little something for everyone. Old Colorado City is a part of the larger area that locals call “Westside”.
Sitting on the Westside of Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City homes offer an easy commute into downtown Colorado Springs, up into the Rocky Mountains as well as great access to I-25. Old Colorado City stretches along Colorado Ave from I25 to Manitou Springs, between Hwy 24 and about Uintah Street. The Westside encompasses a larger area with boundaries at Lower Gold Camp Road (S) and Garden of the Gods Rd (N).
Homes in Old Colorado City range from old Victorians to newer modern construction – there is a wide range of available housing options.
The higher priced Old Colorado City homes can be found in the new neighborhood of Gold Hill Mesa (off 21st, south of HWY 24) and the gated community of Kissing Camels (across from Garden of the Gods Park). The majority of the moderately priced homes can be found off Colorado Avenue between I-25 and Manitou Springs, as well as in the highly sought after neighborhood of Pleasant Valley, off 31st Street.
