There are many tours in Colorado, take a self-guided tour through the many historic spots in Glenwood Springs! Before Glenwood Springs was a Colorado hot springs hot spot, it was a Wild West frontier town called Defiance.
As raucous and ramshackle as its original name implied, it was home to a cast of characters that included gamblers and gunslingers, industrialists and entrepreneurs. Like an ornery child, it eventually matured and became well-mannered and welcoming, the Glenwood Springs we know today. But its knockabout origins can still be seen, just beneath the surface. Take a stroll through Glenwood Springs and admire the architecture of these must-see historical hotspots. Historical tours in Colorado transport you back to wilder times!
