The beautiful, 500 year old stained glass window in the All Saints Anglican Church in Watrous. The church was established in 1920, and the window was removed from the Church of St. John the Baptist in England and buried to protect it against Puritan vandalism before it was restored and sent to Watrous in 2000.
This combine is located just outside of the town of Watrous, but it is no ordinary combine. It is actually a prop from the 1996 movie Twister, starring Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton.

Danceland! Built in 1928, this magnificent building has been hosting huge dance parties for more than 80 years. Its stage has welcomed many well-known bands and singers over the years, including the likes of Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.
Beneath the beautiful hardwood dance floor inside Danceland, are coils of horse hair (horse tails) that give it its "floating" ability. With a crowd on the floor, it will bounce 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 inches, making it easier on the dancers' feet and legs.
Manitou Beach is well-known for, its unique lake - Little Manitou Lake. It is unique because of its naturally buoyant waters, which contain many of the same healing minerals that are found in the Dead Sea.
The water of Little Manitou Lake is brought directly into the Manitou Springs Mineral Spa and heated to three different temperatures. The minerals give the water a gold colour and are believed to have a number of healing and therapeutic qualities.
See, you float!
The Manitou Mineral Spa is a full-service spa that offers every possible indulgence you can imagine – Swedish massage, reflexology, facials, and more. Their treatments include the use of minerals and salts from the lake whenever possible, like here for this facial.
