The Manhattan Hotel - Salida

Today, the Manhattan Hotel features a clothing store and a restaurant...a very nice restaurant where one can dine in comfort while looking out at the Arkansas River...

It just so happens that the father of one of our bloggers (a blogger who now lives the great Pacific Northwest) worked at the Manhattan Hotel for many years. Maybe she'll see this post and explain further.

Rock-N-Row, right on the Arkansas River, offers you an opportunity to climb some big rocks or row a raft down a very challenging river!

The Golden Egg - a florist shop

You'll find The Golden Egg in downtown Salida, next to a little pizza shop. It may not look like much, but the folks that run it are very customer oriented and put out a superior product!

"S" for Salida, on Tenderfoot Mountain

Tenderfoot Mountain is sometimes called the "S" Mountain by virtue of the fact it contains a large S near its summit. The S Mountain is a Salida landmark and serves as the base for many activities, such as jogging, hiking and biking. During the winter holidays it is decorated with numerous lights. The mountain is just east of the Arkansas River.

The Palace Hotel in Salida

The Palace Hotel goes back to the 19th century and if I recall correctly, it is no longer used as a hotel: The ground level is a retail store and the upper levels have been converted into condos.
