Old Colorado City
Affectionately called "OCC" by the locals - located on the west side of
Colorado Springs, this charming area of town is filled with local shops and an abundance of history...as well as the most spectacular natural wonders you'll find in Colorado.
People typically make OCC their "forever homes", so you can guarantee that while housing is limited and the homes are full of historical character, you will also have neighbors for life!
Old Colorado Springs Annual Territory Days has been a highly anticipated event for 40 years. Territory Days is Colorado's largest street fair with vendors and handcrafted arts and goods from around the world!
You also don't want to miss the Friday Art Walk and the popular OCC Farmer's Market. It is certainly a great place to experience!
The outdoor scene in Old Colorado City is phenomenal in both the variety of nature adventures to be had, and the proximity to some of the most stunning natural places to explore in Colorado: Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Red Rock Canyon.
You'll find something for every outdoor-lover in the family in Old Colorado City. From the more crunchy side of life, with holistic shops, breweries, and local restaurants, to the more rugged outfitters that #hikelife bring requirements for: OCC plants you solidly in the mindframe to Shop Local.
