Glenwood Hot Springs Resort is home to the world's largest hot springs pool. Situated between Aspen and Vail, the resort's main pool is over 400 feet long. A full line of spa treatments, including massages, wraps, foot treatments, skin care and spa parties, are available along with a hotel, restaurant and bars.

Strawberry Park Hot Springs is located just outside of the Steamboat Springs ski area. The resort's rustic rock pools are filled with mineral water that spills over into Hot Springs Creek. It offers massages and Watsu treatments as well. There is a heated cabin and a tipi for changing.

Indian Springs is located 30 minutes west of Denver in the mountain town of Idaho Springs, Colorado. The resort has a hotel, hot spring pool and mud baths. The area has been used for healing and relaxation by Native American tribes for centuries.

Rainbow Springs requires a moderate hike into the wilderness to find and features a hot spring flowing from the side of a mountain into a natural pool that sits about 15 feet above the San Juan River. The pool only holds two to three people, but the remote, scenic setting is a reward for the hike.
