Nestled amidst natural beauty in Manitou Springs, this tranquil oasis offered a range of healing mineral water pools, rejuvenating spa treatments, and yoga classes. After a day of pampering, we felt refreshed and ready for the next adventure.
For lunch, we headed to the Garden of the Gods Club, an elegant dining venue overlooking the iconic red rock formations of the Garden of the Gods Park.
