In today’s fast-paced society, where technology rules and face-to-face interactions are getting rarer by the day, there’s something charming—and necessary—about slowing down, taking a leisurely stroll, and soaking in small-town vibes.
That’s why, especially when summer rolls around, I like to hit the road to visit what I consider Colorado’s best main streets. Some are hip, some are quaint, some are historic, but each is unique to its hometown.
“Anywhere you go in Colorado, it seems festivals are thriving, breweries are popping up everywhere. I think people are really looking to connect with a community and with each other, and downtown historic communities are really the best way to do it,” says Traci Stoffel, Main Street Specialist for the Colorado Main Street Program at the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, which offers support for community-led, grassroots progress in downtowns.
