Doc Holliday sought the "curative powers" of the Glenwood Springs waters in 1887. I don't know that the waters cure anything, and they certainly weren't able to rejuvenate Doc, but they feel terrific and seem more buoyant than regular fresh water, perhaps due to the abundance of minerals in the springs. The pool is required by State Law to chlorinate the pool, but that's thankfully not obvious. The large pool is kept at 90º and the smaller soaking pool at 104º. It's wonderful all times of year, but feels especially magical when misting during a snowfall at night. There is a water slide and diving boards at one end (slide costs extra and often isn't open), and it's a great destination for families, couples, and individuals. One can step up the experience with a visit to the Mineral Caves east of the pool. The pool has become very expensive over the years, IMO, increasing several dollars a year in price, and now up to $20 or more for a full-day pass. However, one can mitigate this with a partial pass, and children cost less. Bring your own towels ($2.50 to rent one!) and be prepared with quarters for the 50¢ lockers (which may also go up because they're currently being replaced). A day pass affords in-and-out privileges.
