Manitou Springs, near Colorado Springs, Colorado

After visiting Garden of the Gods Park, a great stop is nearby Manitou Springs, literally about a 5-minute drive. It’s a small, quaint town with lots of shops, restaurants, and a small river running through the town. Many of the store fronts are the original facades from the late 1800’s when the town was established, as well as eleven naturally carbonated mineral spring fountains that run freely for all of those who wish to enjoy the benefits of the healing waters. Free parking can be found along the streets. If you’re a shopper, one can easily spend half- to a whole day here.
