Third Friendliest City in America

We’re in the Top Three!
Manitou Springs made headlines as Expedia.com announced its list of the 2021 Friendliest Cities in America. We’re flattered, of course, and proud to see our community recognized for being its creative, collaborative, and authentic self.

This reputation for friendliness is wholly consistent with our vision for our community as documented in Plan Manitou: we are a welcoming, accessible, and vibrant small community at the foot of Pikes Peak and that we preserve and protect our heritage and natural beauty and are a renowned destination for arts, culture, recreation, life-long learning, and wellness.
