Manitou Springs

— 7 nights
Manitou Springs' main street was once a trail that led directly to the base of Pike's Peak.
Attractions like Cave of the Winds Mountain Park and North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Manitou Springs: Divide (Mueller State Park & Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center) and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant). There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, trek along Barr Trail to Pikes Peak, get engrossed in the history at Manitou Springs Heritage Center, and get outside with Adventures Out West.
