Glenwood Springs

4.2
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. Glenwood Springs is in Colorado. Plan your vacation with our United States trip itinerary builder and discover the best things to do in Glenwood Springs.

Where to stay in Glenwood Springs

Most of the places to stay in Glenwood Springs sit within walking distance of the Colorado River. The hot springs pool lies on the north bank of the river, as do many of the town's hotels. Most of the town, however, is on the south bank of the river, so choose a place here for better access to local services and entertainment. Accommodations in town range from bed and breakfasts to historical hotels to resorts. You'll also find numerous national chain hotels and vacation rentals in condominiums and private homes. If you're looking to ski at Aspen and stay in Glenwood Springs as a less-expensive lodging alternative, inquire at local hotels about accommodation-and-lift-ticket packages.
