Any good restaurants? We are renting a cabin with a kitchen but want to eat out a few times.

I don't know what there is in Cascade but there are a bunch of good restaurants in Manitou Springs as well as some up in Woodland Park.

Must do items? Hard to say, unless we know your likes and dislikes. To me, Garden of the Gods and the Air Force Academy are must-sees. The zoo is outstanding. Pikes Peak is right there. I prefer the auto road to the cog railway.

As for "good restaurants," equally tough. Is your definition of a good restaurant quick and inexpensive? Or Four Stars?

Wines of Colorado, on Hwy 24 at the entry to the Pikes Peak highway, is very good. Terrific Bison Burgers. In Green Mountain Falls (same neighborhood) sits a small, nondescript hideaway that looks like not-much from the outside, but is outstanding fine dining. If you're into fine dining, I highly recommend the Black Bear.

I'm just trying to get an idea of what the locals like, not so much of what I may like or not like. Trying something new is exciting and we may end up very well pleased with the suggestions.

Walk downtown Manitou Springs and you will see multiple interesting restaurants from the wagon place with some game meats to a good mexican restaurant to the fondue place...lots of neat little places - if it is busy they will have good food.

Those places are all really nice to visit, but you should know that it's basically a top-tourist-attractions list for the COS area, which may or may not be what you're looking for. If you want to get off the beaten path then you should research some of the many trails and forest roads in the area.

The incline. Sounds like it would be a hard hike.
