Explore Glenwood Springs
Glenwood Springs HotelsHead underground to illuminated caves where escaping steam from fissures in the rock rejuvenate tired bodies and minds, enjoy a dip in the crystal clear spring waters that spill into a large, man-made pool, and head to the dizzy heights of the Rocky Mountains, to discover hiking trails in summer, and ski slopes in winter – Glenwood Springs offers the perfect balance of adventure, and relaxation.Things to seeThe sizzling waters of the Glenwood Hot Springs flow into a man-made pool, ready to receive excited visitors keen to enjoy a dip in the mineral rich waters. Naturally heated, and featuring a second, therapy-based pool, this premier attraction is more than just a rock lake in the Colorado valley basin. A vibrant resort thrives here, with a focus on physical healing, and welfare. At the nearby adventure park, kids of all ages have plenty to do, from exciting rides to tours of natural rock formations. Dodge stalactites and stalagmites in the Glenwood Caverns, where rippling pools of water reflect the golden hue of the rocks, skyrocket down the mountainside on an impressive rollercoaster ride, and careen over the yawning mouth of the canyon on a scary swing ride miles above the rocky ground below as you discover more unusual ways to see this unique tourist resort, than by hopping aboard a tour bus for a guided trip of the area. And if you have a craving for some pampering, and a little well-earned ‘you’ time, the Vapor Caves at Yampah Spa will ease away aches and strains in their naturally steamy chambers, You won’t need to know the science behind the balance of mineral elements to relax here, just enjoy stretching out on marble slabs and de-stressing for an hour or so.Hotels in
