Things to Do in Florence, Colorado

Find it all in Florence… The Antique Capital of Colorado

Named after the daughter of pioneer and settler James McCandless, Florence is a little town with a bi 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.  Numerous downtown merchants are located in Florence’s historic district.

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!
