From business and enterprise to dining, shopping, arts, and entertainment, downtown Colorado Springs truly is the economic and cultural heart of the city.
Throughout downtown, historic architecture rubs shoulders with modern buildings. Fashionable boutiques are nestled between gourmet cook shops, bookstores, and extreme outfitters. Local brew pubs, martini bars, and everything to eat from sushi and steak to roadside food trucks, will satisfy any palette.
The pedestrian-friendly streets are lined with flowering pots and sidewalk dining, and public art pops up in medians, parks, and storefronts. Museums and galleries abound, as well as performance halls, cultural activities, and numerous places of worship.
Parks and trails provide convenient access for a mid-day break, and provide running clubs and community 5k races with a glorious view of Pikes Peak. Year-round parades and festivals fill the streets, and there’s seasonal splashing at the ever-popular Uncle Wilber fountain.
