Manitou Springs

4
Manitou Springs' main street was once a trail that led directly to the base of Pike's Peak. Today the town still connects travelers with the famous peak through a cog railway that takes people to the summit. Lined with two-story adjoining shops, restaurants, and bars, the town's other main attraction is the mineral springs that offer healing waters. The town's population of less than 5,000 prizes nature and embodies the spirit of an early 20th-century frontier settlement, in fact, Manitou stems from a Native American term meaning "great Spirit." Manitou Springs is in El Paso County. Start your trip to United States by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
