Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs, Colorado is a quaint mountain town just six miles west of downtown Colorado Springs.


The Historic Downtown Manitou Springs is an artist’s enclave featuring time-honored art galleries, street performers, creek-side restaurants and boutique stores. Enjoy a free concert at the town’s central Soda Springs Park, or take the kids fishing at Schryver Park, a shady oasis with an indoor pool, picnic area and stocked pond. Located at the base of Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, Manitou Springs is abundant with fun attractions and activities.  Ride a zip line over a canyon, watch a hilarious show while enjoying a tasty dinner or shop in Colorado's largest art gallery.
