Manitou Springs, Colorado is located between Colorado Springs and the Rocky Mountains. This small town has many attractions to draw visitors from Denver and around the world. Adventurers, foodies, and vacationers will all find something to amuse them. Mantiou, meaning "great spirit", is nestled in the sunshine with beauty and history surrounding it.
Famously, the Manitou Incline is a trail that hikers often use to train for "14ers" - a 2000-foot elevation gain over a mile! For those wanting something a little less strenuous, the Pikes Peak Cog Railway takes a leisurely path to the top of one of Colorado's most well-known mountains. The town itself is filled with restaurants, wineries, museums and even a Penny Arcade for those preferring to spend the day watching the "purple mountains majesty" rather than being among them.
A walking tour reveals eight fountains with the natural mineral water spread throughout the town - the same water used in its multiple health spas. The waters are considered sacred by several Native American cultures and are free to the public. Artists flock to the town for its beautiful surroundings and have established many galleries to peruse.
Maintou Springs is a small town with a big heart. Visit the heart of Colorado for beauty, adventure, and taste. Take a date or take a day, but take the time to explore all that it has to offer.
