Anyone who’s ever visited Colorado knows that it’s an utterly gorgeous state. Folks flock here for the epic mountains, where skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, and plenty of hiking take place year round. But maybe you aren’t about that mountain life. Maybe you like to take it a little easier when you travel solo or with the whole family. That’s perfectly fine, too. Because here’s the thing: Colorado offers way more to the world than just mountains. Here’s how you can make the most of a visit to the Centennial State, mountains be damned.
Put on a swim suit and relax in one of the many hot springs located throughout Colorado. Get away from the world at an all-inclusive like Dunton Hot Springs, located in the renovated ghost town of Dolores. You can opt to use their 19th century bathhouse, hang out in Christopher’s spring, or try their outdoor pool. For a more modest soak, try Indian Hot Springs (located in Idaho Springs), where outdoor jacuzzis, geothermal caves, a mineral pool, and spa treatments all await.
