Thermal Spas · River Rafting & Tubing · Hiking Trails
Glenwood Springs occupies a scenic location at the junction of the Colorado River and the Roaring Fork River, halfway between Vail and Aspen along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The town's large hot springs pool remains its main attraction, but visitors also arrive to fish, raft, and kayak in the nearby rivers and hike and bike in the local canyon. Glenwood Springs maintains a small but quickly growing population of full-time residents. Visitors soak up not only the warm mineral waters, but also the area's varied entertainment in the form of vaudeville dinner theater, festivals, markets, and local brewpubs. Take a look at our United States holiday builder to refine the details of your trip to Glenwood Springs.
