Historic Manitou Springs
Hidden between Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak, America’s most famous mountain, lies the magical town of Manitou Springs. “Manitou,” a Native American word for “spirit,” describes this beautiful mountain community. Eleven named mineral springs throughout town are fed by the snows of Pikes Peak. Long before white men traveled here, the Ute, Cheyenne and many other natives considered this area sacred.
Besides being home to several world class, nationally famous historic restaurants, as well as many favorite neighborhood eateries, Manitou Springs has a wide selection of quality accommodations: Lodging can be found in an historic hotel, many unique Victorian bed & breakfasts, classic and cozy unique motels, quality motor inns, top quality chains, cabins by Fountain Creek or nestled away off the beaten path, and secluded wooded campgrounds. And if it’s the Arts that interest you, Manitou Springs is home to dozens of artisans and galleries. The Manitou Springs Arts Council is a driving force for the arts in our historic town!
Wide sidewalks, parks and creeks are available for pets on leashes.
