This Scenic Colorado Resort City Will Pay You $100 to Visit
More and more travel destinations around the U.S. are welcoming back visitors, and Glenwood Springs in Colorado is giving tourists an extra reward.
The resort city in the Rocky Mountains is famous for its beautiful mountain views, historic hot springs, and luxurious accommodations. For a very limited time, it is also welcoming back tourists by offering $100 to the first 1,000 visitors this fall.
The first 1,000 people who book a qualifying stay will receive Glenwood Gold Community Currency, which can be redeemed at participating restaurants, hotels, attractions, shops, and more.
In order to be eligible for the promotion, you must directly book a minimum two-night stay at a Glenwood Springs property, arriving any day between Sunday and Thursday, now through Nov. 30.
Some participating businesses include adventure activities like climbing or rafting, or wellness activities such as local spas and nail salons. The Glenwood Gold can also be redeemed at several local restaurants and hotels, and even used at retail businesses so you can pick up as many souvenirs as you like.
Glenwood Springs is one of a number of hot springs destinations in the Rock Mountains. Yampah, the main mineral hot spring pool, (named after its original Ute name, meaning “Big Medicine”), provides a natural, hot tub-like experience. Not only is it the largest mineral pool in the world, it’s also one of the hottest in Colorado, according to the city’s tourism website.
Many people travel there to take in the healing waters, relax, and recharge. It’s also a prime place for hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, climbing, zip lining, and skiing (in the winter time). Many attractions are open to visitors, though it should be noted that masks and social distancing guidelines must be followed.
If you are planning a trip to Colorado soon and have made a direct booking with a Glenwood Springs hotel, you can cash in on this deal by filling out the online form on the Visit Glenwood Springs website.
