The Latest Trends in Glenwood Springs – Face Masks and More Personal Space

What visitors are wearing and where to be seen. The current style in Glenwood Springs cleverly conceals the face. Travelers and residents alike are sporting colorful masks and bandanas while enjoying everything this hot springs resort town has to offer. The best way to pull off this new look is from a distance, about 6 feet away.

Make a Fashion Statement – #GlenwoodStyle

To keep everyone happy and healthy in Glenwood Springs, just follow this simple travel etiquette – wear a face covering while in close proximity of others in all public areas, indoors and out. It’s easy! No one questions wearing a personal floatation device while on a Colorado River whitewater rafting trip, so it’s really not a big deal to wear a mask.

This not only demonstrates your commitment to maintaining a safer environment, it allows our businesses to operate and serve guests. Everyone is ecstatic to be open again!


You will want to be a model visitor, so wherever you go give yourself and others plenty of personal space. Plus, that’s the best way to get a good selfie – no photo bombers!


This new accessory may reveal what you would like to do on your getaway. Here are some observations:

Red Bandana

Channel your inner cowboy/cowgirl and go horseback riding in Glenwood Canyon. Or visit Doc Holliday’s memorial and museum.


Bike the 16-mile Glenwood Canyon trail or the 42-mile Rio Grande Trail all the way to Aspen.

Neck Gaiter

If you pulled this out of your snowboard gear bag, you may want to do some standup paddling at the Glenwood Whitewater Activity Area.

Silk Scarf

Fashionistas can shop in a variety of downtown boutique stores and specialty shops. There are some great thrift stores, too.


Color coordinate with your swimsuit and take a hot springs soak. It’s ok to remove your mask while in the water.


Blend in with the surroundings while hiking a trail in the White River National Forest. Or reserve a time to make the trek to Hanging Lake.


The thrill rides at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park are for you. Meet the new troll, Halvor Flowstone!

Traditionalists will appreciate the historic hotels like Hotel Denver and Hotel Colorado. Then do a self-guided tour around town to look at the beautiful architecture.


Attractions like Hanging Lake, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, and Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves have all implemented new guidelines for admission. Be sure to check their websites so you are fully prepared.


Many restaurants have expanded their outdoor seating areas creating more al fresco dining at a comfortable distance. Don’t forget to wash your hands!
