We will start at the Old Colorado Historical Center Museum and walk to the Pioneer County Office. After a short discussion we will move to the heart of downtown, touching on each building's original story, and then take a break at a local restaurant for some wine and tapas. We'll continue our journey completing a full circle, ending at the museum. Each tour will the take the same path, but will adapt seasonally - in the summer, we will spend more time outdoors and in the park; in the colder months we will also visit the Michael Garman art gallery & museum and/or the Simpich Doll Gallery. We will chat about the tunnels that are under Colorado Avenue, that businessmen used to visit the "ladies of the night" without detection and some other fun, secret facts about our history. Each group will also receive a free book about the history of Old Colorado City and some fun tips about additional historical landmarks in the area. (*Please note: wine and food are not included in tour price)
I am a fifth generation Colorado Springs native passionate about Old Colorado City, founded during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859. Our walking tour will be a delightful mix of history (including some scandalous and spooky stories from the Wild West), humor, and stops along the way to try some delicious wines and treats. This walk will be perfect for someone who wants to learn more about our area, but also wants to enjoy the shops and restaurants. I am a speaker for groups large and small, most recently as a Survivor Speaker for the American Heart Association and at The Broadmoor Women's Weekend of Wellness. I am the COO of TEDx Colorado Springs and CEO & Founder of Pikes Peak Launch. In addition, I have art in a gallery in Old Colorado City and I am a member of the Old Colorado City Historical Society.

This will be a walking tour, but we can move at your pace. Groups are 10 or less, so that you can get the most out of the tour - we will have specific places and features to discuss, but can adapt based on weather and your needs. My goal is for you to leave having learned a lot and smiled even more!
