There's something in the water

Maybe it’s the mountain air, or the natural mineral springs. It might be the open-air dining or that feeling of being nestled just at the foot of Pikes Peak. Whatever it is, we know that nature rejuvenates us, now more than ever.

For centuries people have been making trips here to taste the magic and mystery of Manitou’s healing waters. Come and experience the magic for yourself—we dare you.

Far from ordinary

All roads lead to adventure

Nestled between Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak, historic Manitou Springs is centrally-located to the unique attractions of the Pikes Peak Region.

A road-trippers paradise, Manitou sits just below Highway 24. Head east and you’re to the interstate in under 15 minutes. Head west and you’re entering the gateway to the Rocky Mountains.
