Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs' main street was once a trail that led directly to the base of Pike's Peak.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Manitou Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Canon City). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, explore the activities along Manitou Springs Incline, get your game on at Arcade Amusements, Inc, and explore the ancient world of Manitou Cliff Dwellings.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Manitou Springs fast, fun, and easy.
