Best Mountain Resorts

The World's Largest Hot Springs! So relaxing and amazing! Well worth the 3-hour, scenic drive into Glenwood Canyons to stay in the mountains for a night or two! Be sure to take the gondola to Glenwood Caverns, America's only mountain-top theme park, to ride the giant canyon swing, the cliffhanger roller coaster and the alpine slides. Also be sure to hike to nearby Hanging Lake when its open.
