Seven Reasons to Plan Your Colorado Vacation to Glenwood Springs

For those planning a Colorado vacation, hot springs are just one of many reasons to visit Glenwood Springs.

  1. Hot springs. Glenwood Springs is a world-famous geothermal powerhouse. Visitors can soak in healing waters at both the historic Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and the riverside Iron Mountain Hot Springs. Or, for a mineral-infused steam bath go underground at the Yampah Vapor Caves, the only naturally-occurring vapor caves in North America!
  2. Family oriented. From the slopes at Sunlight Mountain Resort to the family-appropriate comedy show of the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, Glenwood Springs is a welcoming destination for adults and children.
  3. Mountain-top adventure. Take the tram to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The thrill rides will get your adrenaline pumping, while the pristinely preserved and artfully lit caverns will take your breath away.
  4. Scenery. Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon is a scenic jewel, but Mother Nature’s generosity doesn’t stop there. Glenwood Springs is surrounded by jaw-dropping landscapes including those in the White River National Forest, the nation’s most visited.
  5. Doc Holliday. The famous Western gunslinger died of tuberculosis in Glenwood Springs. Hiking to Doc’s memorial marker to leave coins and cards is a pilgrimage of sorts for any bona fide Western history buff.
  6. Lodging galore. There’s always room in Glenwood Springs. Choose from more than 33 lodging properties with close to 1,700 rooms. Hotels, motels, historic properties, cabins, bed and breakfasts, condos, short-term vacation rentals and campgrounds provide options for every budget.
  7. Good eats. Satisfy your culinary cravings. Glenwood’s diverse dining scene serves up everything from gourmet meals to quick bites and coffee to cocktails. One of the best ways to find a great place to eat is to ask a local.
