Colorado

All of the state’s 30+ hot springs attractions offer pure relaxation, but the similarities pretty much end there. There are luxurious resorts, family-friendly options with pools and slides, locations within historic downtowns, and hot springs attractions overlooking rivers.

A Historic Hot Springs Loop encompasses 17 hot springs in Buena Vista, Nathrop, Salida, Pagosa Springs, Ouray, Ridgway, Glenwood Springs and Steamboat Springs. The scenic route showcases western Colorado hot springs that range from intimate private baths to the world’s largest hot springs pool.  

Want to catch a national park or monument before a soak? There are options near Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve by Alamosa; Mesa Verde National Park close to Durango; Rocky Mountain National Park with easy access to Steamboat Springs and Hot Sulphur Springs; Chimney Rock National Monument not far from Pagosa Springs; and Browns Canyon National Monument that stretches between Buena Vista and Salida.
