Fruitcake Toss

You know what they say about flying your freak flag, right? You fly it. We feel the same way about fruitcakes. Meet in the park in January to toss your fruitcakes.

There's something in the water

It’s lithium…magnesium and potassium. For centuries people have been making trips here to taste the magic and mystery of the healing waters.  American Natives considered the land around the water sacred and the natural carbonation in the water the “breath of the Great Spirit, Manitou.” It is said many tribes from different areas put down their weapons in hopes of gaining health and wellness.

Get to know Manitou

Manitou is the perfect place to slow your pace to a stroll. Explore our walkable downtown and sip from the cold-water effervescent mineral springs that made this mountain town famous.
