Things to Do

In the old days, we had lots of interesting things to do here in Old Colorado City. You could get a drink and watch some rowdies make trouble in one of the saloons on the south side of the street. You could visit Jacob Schmidt’s saloon and beer hall to spend some time gambling upstairs and enjoying local brew which can still be experienced throughout Old Colorado City.

Back in the day, you had the choice to stay on the north side of West Colorado Avenue, go to church in the morning and visit the Waycott Opera House at night. We had something for everyone.

Today, we still have something for everyone. Whether you’d like to spend a leisurely day shopping, sampling local restaurants and visiting art galleries or if you would like to celebrate an event with us, we have something you’ll enjoy.

Stop by the Old Colorado City Welcome Center at 2324 West Colorado Avenue for more information, a free shopping tote and ADA-compliant public restrooms.
