Hi all,

I have been looking at this board for a week or so, and checking other sites re Woodland Park. Can't seem to find any apartment complexes in the area. Not a house kinda guy, rather have an apartment.

Other topic--how is life in Manitou Springs? My impression is that it is relatively a hippie town (yes or no?), lower-rent area. I'm a relatively conservative guy but get along with a fairly wide spectrum. How do you who live there like it, and why?

Thanks for your input!

Tom

There were very few "apartments" in Woodland Park 25yrs ago. I think today it's probably less....the more common form is "cabin" and they range from very nice to well, not so nice still today I'm sure. I recall renting one of the mid level ones no longer there for about $400 back in the '80s. If you're moving there from a big city you may wish to pay a visit first.

We went to Manitou Springs on Friday night. My husband surprised me after he got home from work with a "We are going out to dinner somewhere" He always does that. I love surprises. I'm like a kid. We went to a restaurant called "The Stagecoach Inn". Its a very laid back family place. My daughter had the new york steak which was good and my husband and myself had the bison steak. I hated it and he loved it. This was my first time eating a bison steak and it tasted a bit funny to me.

Yes, It did seem like a bit of a hippy town. Its got great shops and galleries of local artists and Native American art. I did see a lady all dressed like a earth mama and a few men who looked like the 60's Pretty cool. The shop owners / workers were all nice and friendly despite the late hour we strolled in. The town is full of funky shops and restaurants. We will go back!

I would think the snow may be worse there? It seems higher up?
