Learn more about Manitou Springs
Manitou Springs is a quaint and happening little town nestled in the foothills and rock formations east of Downtown. The area is known for its artsy vibe, as well as unique shops and restaurants. Much like Downtown, development began in the late 1800s. Historic homes intermingle with homes built in the 20th century in a charming willy-nilly fashion throughout Manitou Springs. Newer construction can be found up the mountain in Crystal Hills, an area that is accessible via a windy road with switchbacks. The views from Crystal Hills are incredible!
