OLD COLORADO CITY
“Westsiders” can fill you in on their historic 1850s part of the city, centered by West Colorado Avenue’s charming commercial and restaurant area. “The Old West meets new,” they say. Those early mining-era days were wild ones, now changed by urban renewal into what is described by a resident: “I live right here and I love just walking around. It is peaceful with friendly people and amazing places and shops to visit.” Fans will also tell you about excellent local restaurants, a popular farmers market and even a national award-winning bathroom in the park.
