Named after the daughter of pioneer and settler James McCandless, Florence is a little town with a big heart. The friendly community is conveniently situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and next to the Arkansas River. Many of the town's original historic buildings and homes still remain and numerous downtown merchants are located in Florence's historic district.

Historic Florence, Colorado, Antiques, Cafes, Royal Gorge

An antique-lover's paradise, the town features more than a dozen antique shops and co-ops and has become a favorite weekend destination for many Coloradans and out-of-state visitors looking to go treasure hunting. You'll find plenty of dining here as well. Everything from hearty down-home breakfasts, bakeries and hand-tossed pizzas to fine dining, authentic Mexican restaurants and unique, inviting venues perfect for that special occasion. Florence is also home to several art galleries and working artists studios where you can watch potters work their potter's wheels, and painters creating on fresh canvases. We invite you to find it all in Florence!

Antiques and Art Abound

Today, the town of Florence still maintains a small-town, down-to-earth family feel. Head to historic downtown Florence for an afternoon of browsing, shopping and dining. Boasting 15 antique shops, five art galleries, almost a dozen restaurants and numerous specialty shops, modern-day treasure hunters will love this oasis of antiques and art.

Almost every nook and cranny of these antique stores is filled with treasures. From vintage postcards and toys to collectable dishes and books, each store has its own unique personality. Downtown Florence has also enjoyed a revival of art and music and shoppers can view and purchase artwork in medias including oil painting, photography, jewelry, pottery and more.

Stop into one of the downtown galleries to view displays of works by local artists and, if you're lucky, catch an artist in action creating their next masterpiece.
