Old Colorado City is one of the most historic areas in the entire Pikes Peak region. Started as a supply hub for the gold mines of Cripple Creek in the late 1850s this area retains much of its original charm.
A visit to this area is a must on every tourists agenda. Unfortunately, much of the historical significance gets lost in the shuffle of a visit to this hamlet.
Don’t worry though, modern technology and the Old Colorado City Associates (merchant association) have come up with an app for that!
The “Old Colorado City, Walking Tour App” is available for download from the iTunes store. This app is:
