The Town of Mancos is situated in Montezuma County, Colorado. Only six miles east of the passageway to Mesa Verde National Park, this town is usually a stop by for travelers seeking park information or a decent place to eat. However, the noteworthy and peculiar streets of Mancos often work their magic on the tourists who just cannot escape the town’s allure. The downtown features the acclaimed Mancos Opera House and the scenic first structures established in town. Mancos also houses small shops swarming with rare gifts and delightful art pieces. Tourists also have the option to camp in a lakeside yurt, and explore the wild lands at 12,000 feet or bed down inside a historic fire tower with panoramic vistas of aspen-laden woodlands.
