Can anyone recommend a great funky/weird/interesting/colourful small town to visit in Colorado? I want to go for about a week. I don't plan on water rafting or hiking really. I want to see beautiful scenery, meet some friendly locals, shop in the town and maybe see some historical or natural sites.
I'm in my late 20s so bars/pubs and a good nightlife are great. I'm a single gal traveling by myself so a safe place is good though I'll be cautious regardless.
As far as restrictions go I can't, or would be nervous as hell to, drive on the right side so aside from getting a bus/train/shuttle into town I need everything walking distance or for the town to have public transport or to offer tours.
I'm going in mid to late September. So far I'm looking at Manitou Springs and Montrose but I'm open to all places.
Thanks in advance!
