Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs' main street was once a trail that led directly to the base of Pike's Peak.
Escape the urban bustle at Manitou Springs Incline and Colorado Wolf Adventures. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Homestead House Museum and Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. Go for a jaunt from Manitou Springs to Divide to see Horsethief Falls about 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, get outside with Adventures Out West, shop like a local with Commonwheel Artists Co-op, and hike along Barr Trail to Pikes Peak.
