If you are looking for relaxation, Glenwood Springs offers a great solution with the world’s largest natural hot springs at Glenwood Hot Springs. We have had the Hot Springs downtown for 125 years now in Glenwood and it just seems to keep getting better with age. A natural source of healing and good health is found here and it does wonders for bringing friends and family together. We also have another hot springs location new in 2015 at Iron Mountain Hot Springs. This place has all the locals buzzing around town! With 16 small pools of varying temperatures and ambience, Iron Mountain Hot Springs is slowly becoming a local and tourist favorite.
If the hot springs do not give you all the relaxation you are seeking than I encourage you to play a round of golf. Iron Bridge is a private golf community with public access and very affordable prices. Iron bridge is located just south of Glenwood Springs in the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley with incredible mountain and river views throughout. Lakota Canyon is located down I-70 about 10 miles west in New Castle and gives you incredible views of the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding mountain ranges. If that still doesn’t touch your relaxation button, I would have to recommend you take a river trip.
Speaking personally, nothing gets me more relaxed than an afternoon float down the Colorado River with some friends! Another great reason to purchase real estate in Glenwood Springs is that you have endless relaxing opportunities waiting out your door for you to enjoy. If you really wanted than you could even purchase real estate on a golf courses or with riverfront access without leaving Glenwood Springs!
