D.C. (March 3, 2004) - Nestled in a beautiful valley
on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies, Glenwood
Springs (pop. 7,700) was developed as a health resort
in the late 1800s. Today, the town offers travelers
limitless opportunities for adventure, sightseeing and
relaxation in a richly historic setting. Sightseers
will delight in the town's many turn-of-the-century
buildings, including quaint bed-and-breakfasts (e.g.
Lavender and Thyme B&B) and a handsome - and still
active - railroad station. The variety of dining and
shopping opportunities on and around Main Street will
keep parents busy, while kids will get a kick out of
visits to a historic ghost town, the Glenwood Railroad
Museum, the Frontier Historical Museum, or the grave
of the town's best-known resident, card-shark and gunfighter
Doc Holliday. Explorers can go mountain climbing or
caving at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and Iron
Mountain Tramway, a series of caves stretching 16,000
feet into Iron Mountain. Winter brings skiing and snowboarding
as well as ice skating and ice climbing; in warmer months,
visitors have their choice of hiking, rafting, biking
and fishing in scenic Glenwood Canyon and other nearby
natural areas. Celebrations such as Strawberry Days,
Summer of Jazz and the Groove Grass festival keep days
and nights lively throughout the year - and the reward
for all this activity is the chance to chill out (or
warm up) with a relaxing dip in the world's largest
outdoor hot-springs pool.
Colo. (pop. 8,300): Snugly nestled in a beautiful valley,
this historic resort community serves up a restorative
dose of natural hot springs, exciting outdoor activities,
eclectic dining and shopping, and evocative links with
the Rocky Mountain frontier past.
