People have flocked to Glenwood Springs' famous waters for years. Doc Holliday - of Wyatt Earp and O.K. Corral fame - came here on doctor's orders. Unfortunately, the soothing waters that help relax overworked muscles were unable to cure tuberculosis. These days, tourists soak in the waters and also visit Doc Holliday's grave. It's no wonder that they still come. With the largest hot springs pool in the world, the town has also built a comfortable environment with world-class amenities.
Glenwood Springs is a medium-sized town along Interstate 70 in western Colorado. From here, interstate travelers can make side trips to explore many of northwestern Colorado's state parks and wilderness areas, or stay in the pleasant community of Glenwood Springs and enjoy such attractions as the world's largest hot springs pool, or the mysterious beauty of Glenwood Caverns.
Another unique attraction near Glenwood Springs is the interstate itself. Just east of the town the road becomes a vertical stack, hugging the side of the treacherous canyon walls as it winds its way upward. Much effort was made to minimize environmental impact on the beautiful canyon, and the result is an intriguing engineering marvel.
Glenwood Springs is the largest community along I-70 between Grand Junction and Denver. It is only an hour away from both Vail and Aspen.
