Three new downtown walking tours designed to teach people about the city’s founders, its historic buildings, and art works will begin Jan 11.

The tour: called Spaces, Faces and Places, is designed to draw attention to the city’s history but also a section of art work within the city’s inner core used to draw tourist, new residents and industry.

The tours are part of a three-year commitment by the Downtown Partnership of Colorado Springs to try and obtain a state certification called “Certified Creative District.”
