Hot Springs Pools and Mineral Water Baths are a Popular Attraction in Colorado

Long before European-Americans settled in Colorado, the hot springs of Colorado's mountains were popular with Indigenous Tribes like the Utes, Navajo, and Hopi. Today people are drawn to the state's hot springs to experience the healing properties of the mineral waters and to splash and play with their family.

In Colorado, it's easy to avoid a crowded chlorinated hotel hot tub. Your body feels more relaxed and comfortable when you get out of a natural hot springs pool, versus your typical backyard hot tub -- COME TO COLORADO TO EXPERIENCE OUR HOT SPRINGS AND MINERAL BATHS.
